Loved this movie and what it stood for. Heroism at it's finest. Wes Crowler didn't have to go back to save others but he did because that's who he was. To be able to share his story must be so comforting in some way to his family and friends that lost this incredible man way too early. During a time when there is some much divisiveness in our world, it's nice to remember that human beings are for the most part loving, amazing, caring individuals. while this movie is centered around 9/11, it's story is so much bigger and something each of us can carry with us in our everyday lives and think of Red Bandanna acts we can do.
