Today Debra Kerr died. I first saw this incredibly sweet movie on HBO when it first came out. Now, 22 years later, I am about the same age as most of the characters then. The comparisons to my parents' generation are VERY relevant. Their shared experience of an incredibly dangerous war with our not so dangerous but desperately deluded rewritten history is obvious. The one single shared trait between our generations is, "Damn, we made it THIS far!" I hope that HBO makes this "TV" movie more available so that we, the successors, can see a little bit of insight into the very HUGE change in the fabric of humans that was the disaster of WWII.
