Powerful! Go see this movie if you have not. There has been a lot written and said about the movie, much of it has been politically oriented. That is not what struck me. The reality of war is what struck me about this movie. What our service men and women do every day to protect us, struck me. We enjoy great freedoms in this country, and we often thank and acknowledge those in uniform for those freedoms. But do we really understand what the protection of that freedom entails? This movie will show you. Sure the focus of the movie is a hero that is an exception. But just see if you can watch it without being emotionally moved by those who serve.
I am writing this MMM, and you are reading it, because of the freedom we have in the USA. The reality of war depicted in American Sniper is the price of that freedom. Don’t forget it. Don’t ignore it.
