I also get caught up in this movie, 13 April 2007
Author: brohdaw from United States

Marcibun made a comment on this movie that I kind-of disagree with; the writer states that the so-called jerk was not given the credit he deserved. I believe marcibun is referring to "Brad" played by David Lascher; I do not think he was portrayed as a jerk at all - first, he took care of his friend with the broken leg by carrying him around anywhere and I did not think he was a jerk for turning him down once to hang-out with a girl. Second, I know he was kissing one then when that one was on another bus he finally asked "Leanne" to sit with him but this was nothing more than being a teenager. Trust me; my heart ached for any of the children that died, no matter how their part portrayed their personalities.

I wish I knew if that were true or not about the driver did not drive into the water as shown on the movie because I know people do that and I was shocked to see the pick-up truck attempt it, then even more shocked to see the pick-up truck make it; but I understand that the water was lower and raised rather quickly so maybe at first the bus could have made it; no one knew the river would rise that quick. I just kept asking myself "Why would you do that with 40 of someone else's children?" I still felt sorry for him and I know he was very sorry - more than we could ever imagine but I still wonder! I was glad the driver had a girlfriend who tried to raise his spirits and I was glad when they were at the funeral and the one with Leukemia acknowledge the driver's efforts. (I do not know all the names by-heart yet but I will when I own this DVD!)

Maybe I might be "strange" but I do not think I could have been any more sympathetic towards the people affected by this disaster than I already am. Heck, I even tried to find the "true" victims by searching for stories and pictures; the only thing I found was a Dallas paper and articles from The Washington Post that you have to purchase, and I almost did (but did not).

Therefore, I am not totally disagreeing with marcibun because this person seems to know more about the incident than I did but I do think "Brad" was given credit, maybe not as much as he was entitled too but without knowing the full story, a person watching the film will not know that the person was "ripped off". The movie gives us reason to feel sympathy for this person and I especially felt for him when Leanne stated she wished he (Brad) would die but did not mean it; that moment made you feel for her and for "Brad." I do not think my heart and head could have taken any more "gut-wrenching" truth; these were young children and I calculated that they would now be my age or a little younger and it is still sad – 20 years later.

I know I am asking myself a lot of "what if" questions so I cannot imagine what the people involved were/are still thinking so I only hope the driver, the parents of the survivors, the parents of the children that passed away, the children who survived, and the friends have ALL found a way to be at peace with this very sad disaster.

I'm always a 'sucker' for a true story!
