About This TV Commercial

During shooting of "The Race," the young actors had fun with the working boxcar derby racers. These cars were a delight for the art department to create. Paired with Alabama's song "Angels Among Us," the spot teaches us that sometimes, caught up in the heat of the moment, we may find the richest rewards in life by just pausing and realizing something important may be happening right in front of us.

ANNCR/SUPER: It was the biggest race of the year and no matter what I was going to win. Sometimes things happen that you just can’t explain.
MUSIC: Ooohh I believe there are angles among us
ANNCR/SUPER: Some things are more important than winning
MUSIC: Sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
ANNCR/SUPER: I don’t remember who won the race that day
MUSIC: To show us how to live
ANNCR/SUPER: But I’ll never forget how I felt
MUSIC: To teach us how to give. To guide us with the light of love.
ANNCR/SUPER: Including others…Pass it on. A message from the Foundation for a Better Life.

Including Others. Pass It On!

40 years ago I remember a snowball fight with friends. An opponent, my brother, had what I saw as fear in his eyes as we pummeled them. I was overwhelmed and called an end. My brother wondered why. As a kid I could not convey my emotion. I did not know the word then - it was compassion,

I am a kid and usually I am bored of all these videos but this video opened my eyes to see how it feels to not be able to get up and walk around and I hope you make more videos about this topic. Thank you for opening my eyes to a new world

Coming from a parent who is a strong advocate and supporter of inclusion I just love this commercial. It brought tears to my eyes. I think every child should view this commercial. Maybe it will truly bring more awareness to children with Special needs. From a mother of twins with Autism.

That just made me tear up! Seeing the boy going and picking up the other boy in the wheel chair and letting him race in his place. This is what life is all about helping those less fortunate then we are! There just isn't enough people in the world like that boy!
Angela Owens, Huntington

Some times we should just "be led by a child" They can teach us.

Every time this commercial comes on TV, it makes me so touch and feel inspired. I came here just to rewatch the commercial. Amen for kindness and including others.

This is one that hit home. My grandson is in a wheel chair. He was normal until the age of 2 when it was discovered after a fall a tumor, size of a golf ball was at his spine & back bone. Please say a prayer for him & all others that have a difficult life. Thank-you for your time to read this.
