About This TV Commercial

The most difficult part of filming "Power of the Dream" was getting the gymnast to make a mistake. The actor is a real gymnast, at the International Elite level, and has been trained all her life not to make mistakes. Falling off the beam was a real challenge to her! Yet she did very well. This spot also has an extra layer of meaning for those who know ESL (English Sign Language), which the hearing impaired gymnast and her coach are using to speak to each other.

Is there a way we can share these great commercials on facebook?
andrew, Salt Lake City

Please continue to run this kind of message on TV so it can help our future generations understand that there is other ways to deal with issues and act in a positive way. This will help offset the negative messages they see and hear on TV, radio, movies, etc.. I try to teach my daughter to be a good person, but sometimes it is hard because it seems as if I am swimming agains the current. Please, never stop these wonderful messages so our children can see them all the time.

I really like this commercial because it reminds me that whenever I make a mistake I should always try again because most people learn from their mistakes.

I simply love this commercial and this song. I get chills every time I see it. I think that no matter what may happen to a person, the love for life can be a life raft to take you to achieve your most distant dream. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!

I use many of these TV Spots from Values.com as part of the Character Education Program at my elementary school. The students enjoy them and they "get" the message.
Suzanne Dalesandro, South Carolina

First of all, I want to say, "Thank You" to every individual who played a role in the creation and delivery of the Pass-it-on conmmercials, for they are educational, beautiful,powerful,and inspirational. I can only imagine how much happier, enjoyable, compassionate, caring, understanding and peaceful our existance in this world would be,` if only we would listen to our hearts. To able to never lose the faith and to always keep hope alive. To have the wisdom to elect to do the right things and to ignite every thought and action with good intentions. To have the valor to be the best that we can be and to have the passion and the compassion to love God,to love nature,to love ourselves and to love one another. I am a fifth grade teacher and along with my goal of preparing my students to achieve academic success, my aim is also to help them understand how very special, unique and valuable they are. My hope is that they feel confident to know that they have all the tools necessary to do and to become what ever it is that they feel in their heart and in turn to enjoy the gratfying feeling brought by the blessings of having lived a fruitful life. I believe that introducing my students (with prior approval from parents and administration)to your inspirational videos, will help me help my students. Thank you again, and if I may be of assistance to you, I will be glad contribute. Mario Chavez
