One thought on “Santa Ana teens completing the Ambassadors of Compassion Leadership Program”
  1. Hello, I am one of the students from way back then and honestly, have no idea if I’ll get a response or not. I was just wondering what the name of the movie was. I remember the plotline but didn’t quite catch the name which kills me because I was reminded of it the other day by a friend of mine. Now I think about it every day and if anyone can help me find it, I would be forever indebted to you I guess. Thanks.
