Excellent reminder the price of our freedom
17 November 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film is an excellent reminder that the battles fought on the home front are just as important as those fought by the men and women in our military--and the payment is not our lives.

Do the little compromises we make to avoid offending other religions or atheist beliefs cost us the freedom granted to us by our forefathers?

First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Where are the words here "separation of church and state"? This film dramatizes what happens when Americans do not stand up for their First Amendment rights--whatever their religion.

I don't understand the cynicism expressed in the other reviews. This film doesn't need to stand against anything, as one reviewer complained it doesn't. But it clearly stands FOR something.

Looking to be inspired? Grateful to our military? Then enjoy this film. But be prepared to be inspired. And keep your tissue box handy throughout the film.
