    "One thing that made me think that I could do it, I told myself that if this windmill exists somewhere else, that means that a human being made it...."

    It is very humbling and inspiring to see someone exercise Kamkwamba's kind of long-term industry and commitment to a goal. And, I really think that for someone of his obvious wisdom, intelligence, persistence and drive, his success was only a matter of time, even in his very challenging circumstances.

    With his book and now this film, I hope he understands that, like his epiphany that somewhere else in the world someone had succeeded in doing what he aspired to do in his village gave sustenance to his own ambition, his story will do the same for others around the world.

    That kind of example-driven inspirational leadership is one of the greatest contributions someone can make to humanity.

    I read it the book a few years ago. It’s a really good book. And a very inspirational story. I’d recommend to anybody!

    I hope the movie gets picked up and distributed to the general public. Sounds like it could be an enjoyable movie.

    Sounds like an inspiring story. We need less cartoon characters flying around saving the world, and more stories like this. People can make a difference.

    There is always more good news than bad news in the world.
    It's just not easy to find.
    What a marvelous story. And a fine young man.
