I've seen the movie on the local cable TV. It was so touchy that I cried once in a while seeing it. I felt the hurt and pain the family's victims had been through. Wanting some more information about the incident, I'd searched on the internet, and what I'd got surprised me. As far as I see, the USA's government has always showed its power to the world. While the armies and enforcements has Always been quickly approaching other countries, why were they TOO late to save or rescue their own people? Both Cyclone Catarina and The Columbine tragidy have proved those surprising failures to the world. 3 hours in the Columbine's and 5 days in the Catarina's? I couldn't believe it, after they approaching my country, Thailand, not more than 2 or 3 days after the Tsunami's, for help which I, as all people in the country, had appreciated. Anyway, Is there any movie of Coach Dave Sanders, the teacher who sacrified himself to save his students? If there is none, how about some movie producers considering to make one? I think He was truly a hero and I would be truly glad to see it. ^_^
