Thank you for FP newgrounds. You guys are awesome to make all things possible.

The original animation by Josh Wimble dared me to do this remake. I was hoping someone would have eventually done a remake because the original was so moving. So here I present my version and hope that all who have seen the original will be moved once more.

Music by Switchfoot.
Original story by Josh Wimble.
Animated by Patrick Majewski.

The ending was beyond moving

It was really awesome but I don't like how it had to involve religion...it's not like I'm against religion; they make great amounts of contributions to society. However it's so stereotypical that people that do good have some sort of religious background. Why do they have to be religious in order to do good?

To me, the flash was amazing until the mother dies and the boy turns towards christianity. I just don't believe fueling a stereotype is a great way to justify the meaning of the song and flash respectively.

Godlimations responds:

it was more about personal revelation on the individual. What are you talking about stereotypes... everyone has a stereotype...

The man did good things, but he never had a religious background until the end. He wanted more from this life. And that is still a stereotype. :S

Switchfoot are a Christian band. They're a stereotype too :)

Thanks for watching! :D

shut up stallloon,

Stallloon i see were your coming from but somene can choose to goto a country using there welth to make that country a better place. for example your living in poverty, barely any money for food for you family, would you want people to help you? I can guess you would, and if that person chooses to help other countries so be it. And anyway it's a video nop need to get in a huff and a puff over it.

P.S. i loved it, very touching.
