Proud To Be An American


While I was in Dallas, my family and I decided to go to a movie one night because we were exhausted from traveling and hadn't been to one in a while. My brother suggested American Sniper because it had gotten such a strong response, and I hesitantly agreed. Graphic movies are definitely hard for me to watch (especially in the IMAX theatre we saw it in, eek), and even more so when they are about difficult topics like war and death. Regardless of how violent and disturbing the movie was, it seriously changed my outlook on a lot of things. Seeing everything soldiers have to go through both during and after the war is horrifying, and it put a lot of things in perspective for me. They do so much to protect our country's rights, territories and liberties, and it's so easy to take that all for granted when we live cushy lives where getting a low grade can upset us. It made me incredibly proud to be a part of such a safe, strong country and at times made me want to go serve myself! Whether you are a war movie fan or not (I wouldn't typically consider myself one), I highly suggest seeing this movie as it was really life changing. 

Have you seen American Sniper? What did you think?
P.S. I'm kind of liking writing a few more lifestyle-esque posts lately... Let me know your thoughts!
