    I look forward to watching this movie... I just hope I don't forget about it. It's supposed to air after my youngest gets out of school for the summer.

    Maybe I should leave myself a note in my phone.

    I put it in Evernote to help remind me, too.

    Two weeks from now this film should be shown on your PBS channel. If you click on the link in the first post for this thread, you should be able to find out what time it will be shown in your area. It's probably on June 23rd and lasts 90 minutes.

    There's an article about it in the Summer 2014 issue of Momentum magazine (published quarterly by the National MS Society):

    On my cable provider it comes on at 10:00pm EDT tonight(June 23). That means it will come on at 9:00pm central time I think. On one of the online posts about POV they said
    When I Walk will be available for streaming online from June 24 to July 23, 2014.

    Thanks for calling attention to the streaming possibility, funnylegs!

    I think that the time when the program will be aired varies in different areas. In my ZIP code the PBS channel will air it at 2 AM and 7 AM, not the best times for me. I think I can get it streaming though.

    I watched the move last night, I loved the surprise at the end.

    His challenges were similar to what I deal with, but it's like his are on fast forward, he has PPMS... My heart goes out to him and his family.

    Default aired last night

    I watched this and when he walked and fell it was like watching myself. So many similarities. He was very lucky to find a good woman who loved and cared about him.

    Try to watch it if you get a chance. It was longgggggggggggggggggggg.
