Music by Jesse Ruben.

In 2012, the students at École Puntledge Park Elementary School in Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada completed a self directed project called "I Can" with the goal of making the world a better place. The project was so powerful that the teachers and staff decided to make "I Can" the school's theme for 2013, and adopted Jesse Ruben's, "We Can" as their song. This inspirational video captures Jesse's life-changing visit to the students in this small valley on Vancouver Island.

    The idea that these children's memories will be of how they believed they could . What a great start to life.

    What inspired me about this video? I believe the innocence of the children and seeing how much they believed and know that 'they can'. Seeing no boundaries in their way to achieve what they want. Also observing the emotion on Jesse Ruben's face. I believe that day with those precious children was probably one of the most amazing days for him in his life and music career. I love it!! The teachers and staff at this school definitely display compassion and love for their students. What a wonderful video.
