We don't see movies very often. Especially when they are still playing in the theater. You can guess why, it costs me an arm and a leg! But we had heard so much about The Cokeville Miracle that we decided it would be worth the money.
My sweetie works late hours, but he joined us about 7:30 so we could spend our free coupons at In N Out before the 9:10 show. I know, it's late for the kids, but hey, it's summer. They can sleep in a bit.
There weren't very many people in the theater with us, but even without Princess, we filled up the whole row. I knew the first part of the movie would be frightening, so I held Baby Doll in my lap the entire time. If you remember, Cokeville is the tiny Wyoming town that had a couple of crazy people take over the elementary school. They wanted $200 million to set the children free.
When the bomb explodes, none of the 98 children or teachers are killed. Afterward, the children recall seeing angels who protected them and they tell of a collective prayer for safety from hundreds of people. I do believe in miracles and the power of prayer.
Go see this movie. My children were sobbing. The spirit is so strong. Best $88 I've spent in a long time.
