    Una de las mas hermosas y conmovedoras peliculas que he visto en mi vida. Tristemente basada en la vida real. Ojala esta historia de vida abra nuestras mentes y corazones y las cambie para bien! Conocimiento y amor son la palabra clave! Hago una oracion por todos los Bobbys del mundo! su luz siempre ilumine nuestros corazones.

    Treat people the same as you would want to be treated. I have Cerebral Palsy and i am in a wheelchair. But i am still human i go to the gym i write the most amazing poetry i paint and i draw and i have even been surfing with help of cause. And still some people are afraid or ignorant of people who have a disability it hurts that just because people look different on the outside doesn't mean that are any less important than anyone else. So please treat people how you would like to be treated. .

    My name is just two favorite names. English isn't my first language for sure. Now it has just passed few months, but the idea on homosexual issue had changed after I had friends who aren't straight, which make me think that I can't really look too positive to myself. I do agree that in my childhood environment just because I can't do something "normal people " can do I am just useless. Which really hurting confidence and also how deep and clear I can adjust myself.

    the answer is Islam if u commit a sin you will be punished but at last you will go to paradise if u believe in one god and muhammad as last messenger ( punishments are made to not do wrong things but if u do u can ask for forgiveness and u didnt u will be punished temporarily ) indeed allah is merciful

    If this become a major life choice, how many years it takes before this race doing a suicide. Movie itself might enlarge the point, but the mom seems much more powerful that the dad. Wish the GOD, why not teach the child themselves.

    Let children away from Computer as much as possible before teenage arrived, sure they won't have idea outside normal way. Gay or lesbian aren't normal which stops the human development. It is quite easy to break up both boys.
