Do you remember when you were a teenager, how it appeared that all of life was stretched out before you? It was easy to run care free with our passions, believing that we were unstoppable. I know that I use to think that. What would have happened had I awakened one day and all of my dreams had disappeared, or so it seemed.
I love watching inspirational movies, and 23 Blast was no exception.
About the film.
As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.
I watched this film with my husband and we both found it very inspiring. I cannot imagine losing my sight as a teenager. Travis Freeman displays character and a passion for continuing to do what he loved to do. It also displays the hope that other’s can give to someone who may otherwise have lost hope. It truly depicted that attitude that , “with God, all things are possible.”
