If you don't cry, you are not human
18 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am having difficulty expressing the emotions this film evoked in me. It's amazing. Sad as hell. I grieve for every one of those patients. But I am eternally grateful for the men and women who work their asses off and risk their lives to be there to protect and save them. I can't imagine a more difficult life to choose. USU is a truly amazing place, and produces absolutely incredible people. I wish from the bottom of my heart that every single American could see this film. You cannot see it and walk away the same inside. Make sure to bring tissue - I don't care who you are, you will cry. If you don't, something is very wrong with you.

I just want to say thank you to everyone - not only the people shown in the film, but everyone they represent. The doctors, nurses, medics, teachers, the guys in the field, the everyday military guys who have a huge role in preparing these people for the horrors they will experience - everyone who takes part, in any small way, in making it possible to save lives, in making these people the heroes they truly are. I am deeply grateful for you all.
