DVD Review ~ "The Cokeville Miracle" + giveaway

On May 16, 1986, in the small, ranching community of Cokeville, Wyoming, David and Doris Young took an elementary school hostage for several hours before detonating a bomb inside a classroom that held every teacher and student in the school. In the wake of the madness, Ron Hartley, whose children were inside the classroom, must fight his skepticism and unbelief as he hears eyewitness accounts from the students about miraculous, heavenly intervention during the crisis. When tragedy strikes ... what do you see?

My thoughts:  This film touched me so deeply that I feel at a loss for words to tell you what I think of it.

In May of 1986 I was a Sophomore in High School.  I do not remember this event happening.  I wish that I did. The miracles that saved a school full of children are simply amazing.

I thought that the actors did a wonderful job in their portrayals.  The emotion was so well done.  They really brought this true story to life.  I cried watching it and I'm teary eyed writing this.

I HIGHLY recommend this movie.  It's definitely one that I will keep and watch again.  This is a story that will always be something that I remember from now on.

My Rating is 5 of 5 stars (Can I give it a 10?)
