My friend rented this movie from netflix and let me borrow it.  I just watched it today and I loved it.  Nora (my two-year-old) watched it with me and also loved it.  It is based off of the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a girl from Hawaii that got her arm bitten off by a shark.  The movie tells Bethany's story of struggle, faith and perseverance.  Bethany is a good example of taking something that could be quite difficult and handicapping and making the best of it.  I think that people can get caught up in a disability, whether it be physical, mental , spiritual and use it as an excuse to give up on life. I think that Bethany's story can give hope to everyone, no matter what we are going through, that if we have faith and keep working, we can accomplish our goals and live a happy, successful life and even do amazing things if we want to.
