AN AMERICAN SNIPER ( I give it 5 stars and that's just for starters)

and learn how to pray for our enemies while our enemies prey on us, if for no other reason than, because Jesus said it should be so.



By Ernie Heavin

I saw the movie this afternoon. It is a must see in my opinion, but it is quite tense. It doesn't paint a pretty picture about war, it just reveals the truth about war and the behind the scenes we never want to see. American Sniper also gives us an inside glimpse of the war our veterans fight when they return home.

I've gone to the movie theater many times, but this afternoon I experienced something that I never have before, (well, there was one other movie, "The Passion." Not comparing the two, just the same experience). After the credits had rolled and the light switch was flipped, there was just this dead silence. You could feel it. Karen noticed it, too. Most of the crowd just walked away and only a few were talking, but speaking very low and conversations were to a minimal. Not a single person to my knowledge immediately grabbed for their cell phones to check for messages or to text.

I have never been in battle, but if American Sniper portrays even a tenth of what goes on in a war and the emotional scars of the soldier and the family as well, then I think I'll appreciate my freedom a bit more, hopefully be a little less judgmental of the decisions our brave men and women have to make for their survival and ours, and learn how to pray for our enemies while our enemies prey on us, if for no other reason than, because Jesus said it should be so.
