    Today in U.S. History class we watched the first 20 minutes or so of "Saving Private Ryan" since it takes place on D-Day.

    I said a prayer for all the men who lost their lives as well as their families. It would have been so terrifying...I couldn't even imagine.

    God bless the USA.

    That teenage mother one is a little disturbing.

    I've done that, too. That movie made me appreciate their sacrifices.

    My father, who is such a tough guy, you wouldn't believe, cried the entire way home from that movie. I kinda don't wanna see it now. I hate crying over movies.
