On my daughters field trip on Friday, we went to the Imax theater and watched a film about the Alamo. What a great story! I was moved to a tear several times. Here are a few themes that hit me:
1) Standing up for what you believe in, no matter the cost. These guys faced certain death at the hands of a much larger army.
2) The price of freedom is blood.
3) Giving the enemy “Hell.” They knew they were going to lose the battle and die. But they were going to make the enemy pay dearly on their way out. Travis said “Our deaths will cost the enemy far more than if we had victory over them.” That’s awesome.
