American Sniper-Thank You

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners 178281

       Today is my birthday and my husband, Richard, and I went out to eat and then to the movies to see The American Sniper. Richard likes movies about the military and war. I'm not crazy for all the loud noise and bad language that accompanies a movie like that. But this movie was amazing.

 

       I had heard many good things about this movie and the fact that it was based on the true story of Chris Kyle. I saw a few different articles about the movie and the man. I knew that he got killed after coming back home while he was trying to help a fellow soldier with PTSD. This movie was so well done that you felt like you were living life with them. 

      I can't imagine how it would be to live this kind of life. Chris had a strength that very few people have had. He felt his purpose was to protect and that he did. His wife, Taya had strength too, by living her life without him and wondering if she would ever see him again.  He finally came home, only to lose his life helping someone else.  We don't know how many of our soldiers come home and are just not able to "forget" what they went through for their country. 

 

     I want to say "thank you" to all those who serve our country. We don't know what they went through and what the continue to go through.

 

          A life like Chris' is one that was meant to impact other people's lives. He just wanted to protect his country and family. His story will live on and be one that will not soon be forgotten. What a gift we all  were given!

Happy Birthday Debra! You have made me eager to see this movie. I remember hearing and reading about Chris Kyle's meaningless death. Living near a military community (Minot Air Force Base) I have great respect for the men and women that serve us.

Happy Birthday to you, Debra!

     I haven't seen the movie yet, but my friends who are either Veterans or Law Enforcement Officers are raving about this movie.

I have all the respect in the world for Chris Kyle, but my Donald just can't watch war movies.... too real, too personal. So we won't be seeing it.

Happy  birthday Debra.  I will say this... my step father who did 4 tours in Vietnam was never again the same when he got home.
