That was a great movie, I enjoyed it very much.I went to see the movie 300 tonite.
I have to wonder if anyone there really understood that it was TRUE History, although Hollywood surely did dramatize it.
The story is about King Leonidas of Sparta, who took 300 Spartan Soldiers to the pass at Thermopolae in Greece. Along with several hundred Acadians they held the pass until the Persians led by a traitor got behind them. The Acadians left the field of battle, but the Spartans by duty and honor would not retreat. They did battle with by some accounts over a million persians.. (Today that would be Iranians, who by the way still call themselves Persians.) of course they died, but in doing so bought time for Greeks to rally and defeat the army of Xerxes.
I wonder if the liberals in Hollywood and in the press understand what this movie really says.
Democracy only stands when good men die for it. Democracy must be defended and good men will volunteer to fight the fight and the people must stand behind them.
We stand at a crossroads as a nation.
Will we defend freedom and democracy?
Or will we ignore the legacy of King Leonidas and the 300... who we owe so much too?
Truly, had Xerxes and his armies won in Greece, Democracy would have died there.
Will we ignore the lessons of history and the lives of 300 souls who died for our freedom.
Will we fail to renew freedom with our blood?
How strange for Hollywood to make this movie at THIS time.
