Movies with passion and heart that touch me deeply

A Listmania! list by Soaring Heart
The list author says: "I LOVE these movies because they inspire me, reminding me to take life one day at a time, to be thankful for it, and to make it the best it can be for me and everyone I come in contact with; and, above all, to always believe great things are possible.

Will continue to add more later, check back if you'd like."
