Inspiration, determination and perseverance are words that come to mind while watching 23 Blast.  This was my first time hearing the true story of Travis Freeman and I must say, I was in awe.  When Travis finds out that he is blind, it is truly heartbreaking.

As I watched and saw how he grew stronger, I felt as if my faith had been lifted.  A true friend like Jerry was there for him and Travis was there when Jerry needed him too.

23 Blast

23 Blast is based on the amazing true story of Travis Freeman, who was a typical teenager growing up in a small town in Kentucky.

Travis is a local hero on and off the field. In the fall of 1997, in the prime of his youth, he is unexpectedly stricken with an infection that destroys his optic nerve. He becomes blind overnight.  Under the influence of parents who love him, a physical therapist who challenges him, a coach who inspires him, and a best friend who he cannot bear to leave behind, Travis shows us what true bravery is by competing on the gridiron, helping his team advance to the State playoffs.

We follow Travis and Jerry Baker, his closest friend, from the time they meet on the football field as kids through high school. It is only on the football field where they truly connect.

The movie is rated PG-13

Travis’ story is inspiring and leaves one with a message to be the best that you can.  A disability does not own you.  You are in control and can achieve all that is possible.  I would recommend it to all. My oldest is in middle school and I think this feel good movie would be great to share and discuss with her.
