While driving down to Atlanta helping my daughter move there, I was listening to NPR. The topic was movies which makes guys cry. Most of the movie titles mentioned were predictable. I recently saw Best Years of Our Lives again. Two scenes of the film were poignant - Homer's dad helping him on with his pajamas, Homer showing his girlfriend the problems in being a double amputee. The film won 7 academy awards. Harold Russell lost both hands while training paratroopers in the use of TNT in 1944. Made me think of the many amputees in past conflicts and the current Iragi War.
