Little off topic from steel drum music but I really wanted to write about this.
My wife Susan and I just took our 11 year old daughter to see the new movie out called Soul Surfer. The movie is based on Bethany Hamilton a girl who was attacked by a shark while surfing off of Kauai some years ago when she was a young teen. Bethany survived the attack but in so doing she lost one of her arms. It is a very inspirational story of how Bethany kept on working really hard and was able to keep on surfing and compete in surfing championships. But most of all the story tells of just how Bethany is a very inspirational young woman and she shows what can be done with perseverance, hard work, faith and the support of family and friends. She has overcome a lot and should be very proud of herself.
We all loved the entire movie. We found ourselves being all choked up through much of the movie. Very emotional story but a very good picture.
We go to Kauai about once a year and really enjoy vacationing on the island. It is one of our favorite travel spots. Much of the movie was shot in Kauai which was nice to see for us all to see.
So I highly recommend that anyone go and see Soul Surfer. You will really love the movie and Bethany’s story. Click Here to check out Bethany’s website.
