Soul Surfer {Bethany Hamilton}

[Cry Cry as Bethany]

We loved watching Soul Surfer at our house. 
My boys loved it.  What's not love?  Shark attacks and bikini-clad actresses :) 
During a long weekend that Chris was out of town,  I think we may have watched it 3 times.  I'm a firm believer in lots of media when the husband's out of town... for sanity purposes.   Then they spent hours with their arms tucked in their shirts surfing on pillows.

At the end of the movie, when Bethany is interviewed, she's asked if she wishes the shark incident would have never happened, and she says, "No, because I've learned I'm able to embrace more people with one arm than I was ever able to embrace with two."

Isn't that the truth?  Our weaknesses can be our strengths.  They endear people to us.  They encourage others to be brave.
Good to know every once in awhile Hollywood can produce something with a good moral lesson.  Get it at the Redbox if you haven't already
