It's a feel good story about doing something for others.

I watched this with my husband, son and daughter (who are 15 and 17, respectively) and it left 3 out of 4 of us in tears by the end. The young lady at the center of this story was a great example that, when we decide to focus on others, rather than ourselves, then we are able to accomplish things bigger than ourselves and our own wants. It was also a fun / educational journey through America, riding beside this amusing, sincere storyteller. I believe the Common Sense Media reviewer, who is a woman, was a little too preoccupied with the Anthem Girl's looks (using multiple adjectives such as 'lovely', 'pert', and....seriously?? 'seductive') to give an accurate review of this heartfelt film. I would welcome this being shown at my kids' school, as it contains great reminders about patriotism, respect and gratitude. The CSM.org reviewer missed this by a mile.
