To all who shared an address, incentives have been sent. Those based in Japan will get their incentives between now and Christmas. I hope it will be a wonderful present.
I want to share some comments we have received about the film:
“A beautiful film portrait of a beautiful personality and of a life beautifully lived. … The story of Taylor Anderson transcends all borders and all cultures, revealing that the generosity of spirit of a truly good person continues to give and give and give…” — Peter Grilli, President Japan Society of Boston
"I was greatly moved by your wonderful, inspirational film celebrating the life of Taylor....I think it will become a common asset for those people who would become future bridges" — Ichiro Fujisaki, Ambassador of Japan
“The story of one person, just a young American who came to teach English in Japan, encompasses both grief and hope. This film should be seen by both Japanese and Americans: to use a word that should not be used lightly, it is redemptive. You will keep the images in this film, of a happy positive girl and a devastation impossible to understand, in your mind for a long time.” — Dr. Merry White, Boston University
"The film is inspirational and healing and helps all of us realize that we have to live our dream".
- David Janes, US Japan Foundation
We are now working towards the creation of a version for Japanese audiences that can be ready for the 2nd anniversary so please keep us in your thoughts.
Wishing everyone a happy holiday season. For my backers in Japanese (and I hope I have this correct) Akemashite Omedetto Gozaimasu.
