Last week P and I went to see Argo. It was one of the most powerful and intense movies that I have seen in quite some time. From the first 15 minutes it pulled me in. I was on the edge of my seat, my palms were sweating, and I found myself holding my breath.
I left the movie and I could not turn off my brain. They bring up some pretty intense events from our history and they have implications today. The movie was thought provoking and I could not stop mulling everything I saw. I ended up coming home and I spent the rest of the afternoon researching Iran and I watched a documentary on You Tube about Iran.
The thing that I could not shake was, "Why do they hate us so much?" I know why they dislike America and our stance, but they really hate us and want to kill us. It scares me the hate that we see on the news every night. I know that America has made some bad decisions, that we have been on the wrong side of decisions many many times. I own that. I see that. I totally admit that. But, to protest in the street, to burn flags of other countries, to call their leaders the devil, to stab dolls with the face of American presidents in the street, that is dark. That is evil, that is hate. It is so scary.
Tonight, in this hard time for America, hold your loved ones a little tighter, thank God for the blessings He has bestowed upon us, and pray for peace.
Have you seen Argo? What are you feeling about what is going on in the middle east?
