I just went to see this movie last night and it was deep. I don’t know what I was expecting but all the emotions that I felt that day (9/11/2001) came back. I remember everything that happened that day, in detail. I remember thinking what is next, will my kids see worse things than this in their lives? I also remember seeing tons of churches and christians rally around this event and help people the best they knew how.
I made the comment on the way out of the theater that, I wish we would have gone to see Pirates of the Caribean 2, but I really am glad that these memories were awakened. We live in the greatest country on the planet and I am proud of our police, fire, EMS, military and the average Joe that do all that can to help their fellow man and serve their country.
There was one line in this movie that I will carry forever. A former Marine finds two police men trapped in the rubble and the police men beg the Marine not two leave them and the Marine says this: “Are you kidding, you are my mission”. I hope that is how I view all those around me who are burried in the rubble of sin and seperation from Christ.
