Dear Life,

“Dear Life,” This film is a letter for life. Just like a letter from the parents to their child, a letter they tell it every day, their whole life, to teach them the game of life. It’s about how we live our entire life learning how to survive in the dark. How to love when there’s so much hate in the world. How to find happiness. How to be loyal in a betrayal world. How to get up after life has cut too deep. How to win after we lose so many battles. How to chase our dignity. How to find ourselves, and not to be lost in a lost world. How to get back on the right track after losing our way back home. How cruel it is when our life goes on while watching someone die, and how we learn to go on through life without them. How to fight for peace when all is happening out there is war. How to be innocent in a guilty world. How we heal everyday from the things that broke us, from a past that made us its slave, from the friends who left us, the bullies who turned us down, and how we learn to leave everything behind. How to start a new chapter. How to follow our passion, how to achieve it, and how to be a miracle that will touch people’s heart and soul through all our disabilities, because nothing is impossible. To smile on our worst day. To celebrate life before it ends, to have a purpose to live , to dream, to hope, to love, and to be loved, miracles are everywhere, we can never understand what life holds for us, but we have to learn that things will happen because they had to. We only come once to this world, it’s a big world out there, find your spot and be anything you want to be. It’s about the smallest things in life that makes a lifetime memory. I dedicate this film to all our loved ones who have left us, to every soul fighting for its last breath, to each and everyone of us who is fighting battles, to every broken heart out there. We are all survivors.
