Hope is Good wrote:
From what I saw, the film was all about hope. It isn’t about people or organizations, it is ultimately about who God is, and what He can do, when people recognize Him and invite Him to be a part of their life and circumstances. It didn’t claim that any person, agency, city or government, are perfect.“Transformation” is a process--any forward movement is a good thing. People in Clay County are no different than anywhere else. We all need something greater than ourselves. As soon as we stop ignoring God and trying to solve our own problems, and then blaming a God we claim we don’t believe in in the first place, the sooner Truth can set us free. We need God… whether we think we do or not is irrelevant.
You are right on. The ones who are against this are........well you know where I am coming from, and they will be found out!

You all dont know what you are talking about. I have been on drugs really bad, doing better but still have hard time. That movie helped me in alot of ways, i knew malanda back then. Her staying straight helps me. Whe Jennings was in office you could get drugs too easy, Jordon would bust you and get all your drugs but Todd and Vernon would bring them back in two days. Doug A was never invoved in nothing like that...I would know! I also rmemeber the big time drug dealers saying, if Doug A beats Jennings out its going to make it hard on us. Malanda was told to get her dad to back off, I seen it and heard them tell her. It was all true, after that we had to drive to Ohio and Indiana to get most of the drugs.
Doug A for sure got the bad end of the deal, his enimies who are big time drug dealers testified on him, thats not right. I also remember a group wanting to knock Doug A off and set him up but never could. Dougs story in the movie also struck me hard. When your using you only think your hurting yourself, If Doug would of killed all those who were selling I could understand, even though I was one.
You people on here know nothing of what really happened

Wondering- have you seen the movie?? That will give you some ideal of what Clay was like before. Thats the group that actually were the "mafia", they bought election, brought drugs in the county, ploice were working with the drug dealers etc etc. When the FEDS busted these guys they all plead guilty to half of what they done, then they testified on the Clay 8 and got over 10 years knocked of their sentence!!! People will say alot about the 8 men and I can only vouch for half of them because they never were on the same side. But the FACTS are no matter what the 8 really done, they could never have done all the damage that the first group did!!! It angers me that the feds have released them only to start up again.

I coud'nt agree more.
I Saw the Show

When I saw that show, I almost cried! It was the best show I have ever seen, or ever will see. It portrayed hope for the nation, hope for God's people, hope for people everywhere who believe that their Faith has no influence in the world.
This show portrayed true hope, more hope than I've ever had, it showed us that with the help of the Lord, you can do anything. You can change a nation, a school, a home, a town, a society, a culture, a family, even a church.
I don't know anyone who is commenting in this, but I do know, that those who are disapproving of this show, need to open their eyes to the miracles that are happening right before our eyes.
Without God in your life, most of the people reading this are going to Hell for eternity.
The only reason that every newspaper in the world didn't report this glorious transformation, is because the media is tainted against the Lord.
One of the pastors, and a former drug dealer (the one form the porta-potty) came to a church in my town, and I was astounded.
The reason that they could change the town was because of love of God, and ALL of the churches working together.
There is hope for a better, more Christian world, but we all need to work together no matter how we worship.
There is a world transformation coming, the biggest revival of Christians since the Lord walked the earth. We all need to do our part in raising the kingdom of the Lord.
Always pray……

I am behind this change 100%, and the movie tells only the absolute truth about conditions in our communities.
God is very alive, and He will stop this crap, IF we will join together in unity and ask Him. He has already begun making changes, but we still need to remain unified with our sister churches. Drug dealing idiots crept in here, while we all were busy living in our own little worlds, so we cannot let our guard down like that again. Keep on fighting the GOOD fight. God is the ONLY hope for future generations. We have lost, and buried, an entire generation of our young people. We cannot allow this evil to take anymore!

Appalachian Dawn depicts how God works to bring his children back. He sent his only son Jesus to save sinners, just like many of those depicted in the film. This story is universal to people around the world. The good people of Clay county should be honored that God chose their county to send a message to the world. You must hold a special place in God's heart. This wave of hope is reviving the Appalachian region and is beginning to spread to communities everywhere. God is doing something big with this. Don't be surprised if this changes America. What better place to sweep positive change across America than from a community near the Cumberland Gap where Daniel Boone led hundreds of thousands of early Christian pioneers to settle the west...

To the fight against drugs, I say "bring it!" For an American
Christian revival in these evil days, I say "bring it."

Churches of all denominations need to put aside petty differences, learn to work closely together with each other, and with secular officials and others of different faiths to accomplish God's will. The improvements to our communities are limitless. We will all benefit from the results and no single church or belief system will get the credit, but we will all stand in awe and simply say "look what God did."

Some of it was ok,but for the most part didn't like it.They didn't have to put down certain people to tell the story of recieving God in their lives.It talked about certain dealer.They didn't have to use people's name.And we all know anyone can go to almost anyn hollow in clay co.and buy drugs still,
