War Movies

This is a photo of the World War II monument in Washington, DC. We visited there a few years ago when I was at a writer’s conference. A lot of American boys went off to war after the attack on Pearl Harbor. One of the Oscar nominated movies this year, Hacksaw Ridge, featured the true story of one of these men. Desmond Doss was a pacifist who still wanted to serve his country, and despite being ridiculed he saved many men from death at the battle of Hacksaw Ridge.

Although this movie was bloody, and I had to look away several times, I appreciated that it portrayed a person of faith in a positive light. The fact that it was based on a true story made the movie that much more meaningful.

If you have a tendency to cry at movies like I do, you need to have a full compliment of tissues with you because this movie will be sure to make you cry.

Do you ever cry at the movies?
