"I'm a Better Deputy... Because of Sam"
Deputy Tyler Wilson, 
Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office
I'm a better Deputy and a better friend because of Sam. Sam shows you every day that there's something you can do even more than you're already doing, to make someone else's life a better day.”
"I Was Blown Away... It Was Endearing..."
Victoria Michael
Victoria discusses how she was “...blown away by Renee Warmack's work (producing the film). (The Movie) was endearing. It was humbling... there were quite a few moments through the movie where I felt emotional just because, (I) just saw the beauty of this family, what they've endured and been through. And this story of resilience and redemption is incredible. I'm a mother, and I try to teach my children about inclusion and why it's so important, and this movie really hones in on why. It was beautifully done
