“I can not watch modern warfare movies as a Blue Star parent. It’s too hard,” wrote Claire, a Blue Star Mom, about the new movie “Act of Valor.” Claire contributes to the You Served Spouse & Family blog.
Claire shared her personal fear that she might fall apart in the movie theater, but she set up a “guys night out” for others in her family to see the film that features active duty U.S. Navy SEALS portraying characters. A portion of Claire’s blog entry:
One part of me really wants to watch it out of sheer love and respect for the Heroes in it and for the story they are sharing. I think listening to the stories of our Veterans is one of way of showing them love and respect.
So, for the time being I wish all Act of Valor movie goers on Friday and beyond a thought provoking, respect gaining, and altogether wonderful time watching the story of real Heroes! I can’t wait to hear all about it. In the meantime this Blue Star mom will return to her position as prayer and morale support!
