Movie Project Update: January Recap

Thanks to Mama and Dad's Christmas gift of NetFlix we've been able to watch more Academy Award Winners for FREE!

January's movies were: The Broadway Melody (1929), All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), The Great Ziegfield (1936), Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Marty (1955), and In the Heat of the Night (1967).

Our favorite was Best Years of Our Lives. It's the story of three men returning home from WWII. What was so amazing, was that the story is just as true today for our men and women returning home from Iraq. Their stories, their feelings, their readjustment to everyday life unfortunately so little has changed.

As many of the movies are about war, we have made a special point to thank God for the men and women who have served, and are serving, our country. We pray also, sometimes even more, for our enemies and for peace on earth.
