As a volunteer firefighter, I was excited about the new movie, Ladder 49, which started playing in theaters last night. Several members of my firefighting "family" were also there with me. Overall, it was a very good movie. I'm not going to tell you what happens though, as I hate people that do that to me. What I will tell you though is that is the first movie EVER that has made me cry, much less hit home that hard. I want to become a State Trooper within the next 3 years. Even though the movie was based on firefighters, there's just one scenario in that movie that I could not deal with that also pertains to the Highway Patrol, which is what made me so upset. Those that have seen it can probably figure out what I'm talking about. I'm sorry to ramble on about the topic, but I just needed to tell someone.
