Letters to God
When I originally heard about this movie, I knew it would be sad and moving and sob inspiring. I had decided not to watch it right away. I felt like there would be too many similarities. I saw it on Netflix a couple weeks ago and added it to our instant watch list...along with nearly 30 National Geographic, and other educational videos. I love Netflix! Okay, back to the movie. Britney saw it on Roku and asked Cody if he wanted to watch it. No, he didn't. She asked again and again, and day after day he said no. A couple days ago I told her to go ahead and watch it if she wanted to. I made the mistake of sitting down and watching it with her.
It is a really good movie, but I would have been better off not watching it. I could relate too much to the characters and the story. Part of the movie was even taped at Give Kids the World Village in the very room Mickey, Minnie and the entire audience sang Happy Birthday to Cody when he had his wish granted in 2005. Plus the clip of the carousel and Cody's favorite place in the whole world - The Castle. Brit and I boo-hooed several times during the movie and had a great talk when it was over. She saw a lot of similarities too and it gave her some things to think about.
The movie left us sad, and wanting to go to Florida.
