Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Jeff and I watched a movie the other night called Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, it was a good movie. It was a tear jerk-er ( I am sure you guessed that, because it was a story about 9-11 ). Still the thing that struck me the hardest was...the love of a parent for a child. That type of  love will do anything to help, save, protect and teach their child. It also reminds you to keep a prayer in your heart for children who have special needs, and for their parents who have to wade through a lot of mud in their lives to help and raise these kids. In the world you can be made fun of for just wearing something different or for looking different. Think how much worse it would be when you act and think differently than all the other kids around you..that would be hard, extremely hard.
Life is hard, and being a single parent with special needs would even be harder and probably more lonely than we could imagine. Still the movie left you with a great feeling many wonderful people there are in the world, and how each of them have their own story to tell. Yes, I am glad we watched this movie. Just another reminder to put on your boots, and get prepared to walk through some mud in your life time...!
Good night dear friends!
Movie review...
Oskar (Thomas Horn) is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can't be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father's closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him...
