Have you seen...

Have you seen the movie Hacksaw Ridge? I just watched it this afternoon and it was magnificent. While it takes liberties with the true story of Desmond Doss, I think it had to--no screen in existence could hold such a story. You have to be in awe of a man who was so strong in his religious convictions that he was willing to go, multiple times, into the hell that was the Pacific Theater during World War II without a weapon, without any training with a weapon, in order to meet his conviction that he had to serve his God, his country and his fellow man as a medic. If you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself to do so.

I watched it last night. It was great. And horrific, too.
