AARP Tennessee is proud to host a special movie event on September 16 as part of Welcome Home in Clarksville. We’ve arranged for an exclusive screening of the film Sky Blossom followed by a live panel discussion featuring the film’s producer, director and the subject of one of its inspiring stories.

SKY BLOSSOM is a raw, inspiring window into 5.4 million students stepping forward as frontline heroes. Caring for family with tough medical conditions, they stay at home doing things often seen only in hospitals. They are cheerleaders, work part time, and go to college — but also live double lives — quietly growing up as America’s next greatest generation. 

The filmmaker, veteran journalist and award-winning CNN/MSNBC news anchor Richard Liu says the interviews were so honest they genuinely surprised him, as they revealed insights into the lives of young people across America. Troops used to look up and say, “Here come the Sky Blossoms”—paratroopers rushing to their aid. Today, there is a new generation answering that call. These are their stories.

So please join us for this free screening that will move and inspire you. Registration is required and space is limited so reserve your seat today!
