Children today have a twisted view of what makes a real hero.
It's true. They look for their heroes in all the wrong places like professional sports, the music industry, motion pictures, TV, and a few comic books. But it would be time well spent for you and your children to sit down and watch the film, Gray Eagles
You won't find men filled with self-pride and stuck on their own success. No, what you'll see are men who gave of themselves in WW II, came home, and went back to work.
Gray Eagles is a warm, sensitive documentary film, about a P-51 Mustang, that will truly touch your heart.
I hope you'll watch it. It'll be time well spent. And when you do, I also hope you'll send a comment to let others know what you thought about this special story.

PS. The action-adventure & mystery books that I write for kids, usually present a humble hero who doesn't want to be thought of as a hero...just like the true hero in Gray Eagles.
