Red Tails, Go See It

I saw the outstanding movie, Red Tails this weekend and I want to encourage people to go. I was at the edge of my seat from the beginning because the characters came alive in the George Lucas film.  He had to overcome many obstacles to make the movie because the big wigs in higher up places didn't think it was profitable.  Let's prove them wrong and take your family.  It is based on a true story about a group of Black Pilots who faithfully served their country  in WWII.  They had to overcome racial discrimination and prove they were as worthy as their white counterparts.  They were given the mission to escort bomber planes to the inner most part of Germany and did so with honor.  They prayed before each mission for God's strength and I believe He was with them.  It's a story worth telling.  Go see it soon.  My 90 year old mom is dating a pilot who served in WWII so I understand now what a sacrifice he made.
