To Save A Life

On Sunday we went with the church youth group to see the film, To Save A Life at the Strand Capitol in York, PA.


This powerful PG-13 Christian film sends a good message to teens about faith, life, and loving others. The real-to-life film portrays everything from suicide, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse and the roller coaster emotions of teen life.
Here is a brief synopsis about the film:

To Save a Life is more than just a movie. It's the difference you can make when you use your influence and time for others - whether in your family, campus, neighborhood, community or world. Some people are just dying to be heard and accepted. Don't let em' have to. Be the person who takes the time to show people they have value. Listen. Reach out. Engage. Imagine if we took the time out to show people we cared. To Save a Life dares - no inspires - you to.

I highly recommend the film, especially if you have a teen. Click below to see the trailer and click the link above to find the movie in your area. It is not shown in many major theatres. The expected release date for the DVD is June 2010.

I will have to get this movie when it comes out on DVD. What a powerful message to our kids about a simple "Golden Rule" do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Wouldn't this world be a much better place. Maybe Parents should view it also...they could learn a lot about their own kids.

Yes!! I am with Janis. I was raised to treat others as I would like to be treated. I learned the hard way that not everyone was raised that way...that was one of the most difficult parts of childhood/teenhood for me. I firmly believe that if we humans had a better capacity for empathy, a better ability to put ourselves in one another's shoes, there would be a lot less suffering in the world.

I can see how your teens would identify with the characters in this movie--they're appealing and familiar. At any time during high school teens may find themselves playing any of the roles--in-crowder or outsider. Kudos to you Kelly for making the effort to teach your children about the values you want them to have in a way that they can identify with. There's another film that's showing now that may be along these same lines from what I read in the reviews--haven't seen myself. It's called "Letters to God". It's showing at Tinseltown in my area so much be in wide distribution. Described this way: ". . .story of what happens when one boy's walk of faith crosses paths with one man's search for meaning."
