And I -- again and again you know one of the things that that that I think I loved about this movie it is so refreshing to see Hollywood present.
A church going god fearing family in a positive light you just don't see it very often.
People there were authentic and in is that you tell me about who Leanne to -- is what motivates you inside.
I think that John Lee Hancock spent an inordinate amount of time.
Around our family and I think that he knew the pulse -- heart -- I have to tell him who I was which.
Which is nice because think that he just figured it out on his.
And that was that was good for -- because the that he watchful we did what we said -- interacting with each other how we interact with our friends.
Went to church with us you know the kind of -- that we went to.
And so all of that I think just.
Hang together and -- this movie you know what it was and yeah I think that's who I am as the saying he hit a good job with that -- wanna think it scared her a little bit about taking on this role as the Christian aspect of it.
And -- and she really did a great job that we cannot Stanley kind of believe that you're.
Walk -- a little bit more important in your talk.
You know words are easy to say -- people thought of -- and I really have -- -- It's easy you know anyone can and it can provide -- lip service.
That it takes.
Seeing someone live their life.
The way that we think that we should let -- -- and we're not necessarily gonna judge anyone else -- just each other.
And dumb to me tell us formally -- tell our kids is that you know you your walk is much -- -- important and down.
You know and -- -- the face obviously played an important role in that that compassion that you had for Michael when you first.
Began to Nolan and invited him in your home.
Did you ever think about gosh what if there's a risk involved here in the vulnerabilities.
-- it was out over a part of it he brought so much to us so quickly.
That we just -- more -- com.
You know the more you got to know first -- that took about an hour follow -- and everyone does that's not us we just.
We were the lucky ones.
It you know and I tell everybody and I really do mean that he was a great kid when he came back half we just -- screw him up and that was always implied.
And so you know he really gets most of the credit -- It I think that first -- With their flaws.
And -- an -- Stanley that's not hard to do and so John Lee was easy about.
Well -- this really is a -- famine because look how much they screw up the you know and and so I think that attracted Sandra Bullock probably to the it you know to the whole aspect of -- a live human being mean because that's gotta be scary so it's an election -- herself if she -- -- a lot of flaws I can do that.
Pop up your troubles yeah.
There's a lot of planes got out of New York that.
I accept that we got on hand.
Michael yeah it you know it was it was just so easy and it was so rewarding and and we really do feel and and this is -- whether people believe this -- not.
I really feel that that giving is is is something that needs to be you know a happy thing I mean the Bible says that got only like to cheerful get -- so.
If you don't like.
Giving will then.
You know they'll do it.
Well we really have gotten to where we think that that's kind of who we are and it -- little.
You know I certainly didn't like that first -- -- that's an end.
But you know when acts when it was explained to me the process of -- so much easier so much better and -- and we really think that if you go into the movie.
And you come out.
They -- you really -- come out differently.
And and we think that it might empower people to to do a little bit more.
You don't have to Latin adopt sixteen Euro -- that's not what we intended to do either but it is something -- exact I think we you know Collins and I ask you this.
You've -- your family now and go through this incredible gift of yourselves.
-- this impacted you as a person what do you think in terms of your future and and how -- watching your parents.
Love somebody that they didn't have to -- -- kind of have to love you and -- you know choice -- -- don't have -- -- Michael but they did what does that do for you.
Well you know.
We just did that Good Morning America he's -- couple and -- again and the victory carrying -- morning and then we had another -- coming after and when the questions asked was can you imagine your life without Michael.
An allergist is a long day assets had had just sat there and I just lost it -- a a in -- -- the -- camera cram -- when they're sitting around me and I couldn't reach him 'cause -- out because there aren't.
Wired to this crap what life would be like if Michael wasn't the -- that's the only -- he got back and you know -- -- stats and and he is so much a vital part of of his family isn't and what we believe in the direction that we're down laying in.
And I just think that that -- can go back and think that he wouldn't be here it it's not even in that -- -- thought.
-- and I think that you and Sean Collins and SJ have all given the country something to celebrate Christmas time.
And that's the gift of a -- you have love somebody unconditionally.
You as a person are having a tremendous impact in your family on the rest of America -- a powerful way.
And I want to say thank you and thank you for opening yourself up to all of us in getting out.
I think there's a lot of Michael wars and you know just you look around coming -- there's so many kids that are.
Very quickly kick ball with a cracks and -- -- a lot of Michael -- -- out there so you know hopefully we can do something to keep that from happening.
Let's hope there's allotted more Leanne to lease and Sean too little guy Holland okay well not a whole lot -- -- I think it's a great idea.
