A monument to life
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch this film for the second time last night and I was moved again. There is no getting used to the human greatness shown here. This is a story about tearing down the barriers we build in our lives, or others build for us. A story of how love can help people grow. This is a truly moving documentary about the power of the human spirit. No hurdle is tall enough when the human spirit is as big as those shown in the film. It demonstrate that "impossible" is just an opinion; when you set your heart for a great purpose, nothing can stop you. A must see with your family, particularly your children. Please don't miss any opportunity to watch this film.
