Awesome movie!!!
2 July 2012 | by kcampbell1972See all my reviews

This movie was the best movie that I have seen in a very long time. It will definitely make you cry. I really enjoyed the music as well. All I can say is that this is a must see movie. I really can't even say enough about this movie without giving it away. I have it on netflix and everyone that comes over, I make them watch it with me. After watching it, they walk away feeling a little better about their life and a little sadder for all of the men and women who are still left fighting for our country. I will continue to pray for the safe return for our brave men and women who are still fighting for our country. This movie just goes to show the world how children are affected by the death of their loved ones. It doesn't seem fair that these children have to go through such a tragedy at a very young age. My deepest sympathy goes out to these children.
