I first saw this movie while I was in college. The theater was packed and every person in the room felt goosebumps and tears welling in their eyes as this fictional President of the United States solidified the importance of celebrating our independence from an alien race. I know, it sounds corny and even silly to be moved over such a fabricated story, but those feelings were evoked because we all feel patriotic when our country is threatened. I will never forget the end of the movie. Every single one of us stood up with tears in our eyes and applauded for several minutes.
I am deeply moved by all of the men and women that have fought to keep us free. Thank you!
