I had a craving to watch it after seeing Gary Sinise on TV...he is a wonderful man. His organization to help wounded veterans exists because of the part he played as Lieutenant Dan.
Forrest Gump is my favorite movie (there are maybe five that follow it). It's brilliantly written to interweave humor, sadness, happiness, tragedy, and love all during a time of a terrible war...I don't think anyone my age can watch it through to the end without tears. I couldn't.
Thought I'd write a short post to remind anyone dropping by to be sure to watch it again--and so that some day my kids will know that Forrest Gump was my favorite of all movies.
