My mom, sister and I saw Soul Surfer at the dollar theater this weekend. I was so surprised and completely blown away by this movie. It is about Bethany Hamilton surviving a shark attack in 2003 at the age of thirteen. AnnaSophia Robb did an amazing job, as did Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid and Carrie Underwood! More than being a story about the triumph of the human spirit it is a beautiful testimony of faith. I cried and cried through the whole movie. I am looking forward to reading Bethany Hamilton's book.
Love is bigger than any tidal wave or fear.
I don't need easy. I just need possible.
Life is a lot like surfing because if you get caught in the impact zone you've got to get back up because you never know what may be over the next wave.
Media: Bethany! If you could go back to that day, would you not go surfing?
Bethany Hamilton: No, I wouldn't change a thing, because then I wouldn't be here talking to you, I can embrace more people now then I could with two arms.
