29 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a student from Los Angeles City College and I had the chance to watch a sneak preview of this film as well as meet the filmmakers Joshua and Rebecca Tickell. They are very caring and intelligent people who decided to share with my class their methods and to express their views on the world around us. I would just like to say that this film as well as the filmmakers have changed my awareness of the world around me in a positive way. I wish you Good luck on your journey to success and Thank you for visiting my school. I will never forget, "Catch as catch can, sometimes you have to work with what you got"-Joshua Tickell.

Thank you -Robert Penna
