On January 28, 1945, 121 hand-selected U.S. troops slipped behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Their mission: March thirty rugged miles to rescue 513 POWs languishing in a brutal camp, among them the last survivors of the infamous Bataan Death March. A recent prison massacre by Japanese soldiers elsewhere in the Philippines made the stakes impossibly high and left little time to plan the complex operation. This was a really solid read.
It’s different. It’s fresh. It’s so stinking good! My favorite so far is the Smokehouse Slice or the Pimento Slice! I love this place and bet that you will too!
A woman’s search to uncover the mystery of the disappearance of her husband leads her to the Congo, where she’s forced to seek the truth about what happened to the man she loved. This eight part series was captivating and binge-worthy.
This “based on a true story” film will inspire you and encourage you. It’s one of those movies with the power of redemption and perseverance woven through the storyline. A young African boy in Malawi helps his village by building a wind turbine after reading about them in a library book. Be sure to let your older kids watch this with you.
A Quote from Richard Rohr:
“Until we learn to love others as ourselves, it’s difficult to blame broken people who desperately try to affirm themselves when no one else will.”
