What is the name of your band again?
It is "Mercy Me". Because when I told my Memaw that we were starting a band, she was like "Mercy me, get a real job!" And I was like: "Oh, Memaw."
And the guys were like "Did she really say that?" and I was like "Yeah, we have to name the band Mercy Me". So we called it.

I enjoy a wide range of movie genres. I don't seek out Christian movies in particular. I knew from the trailer the basic premise of this film, however nothing more. I knew it would be a tear jerker, but it has much more substance and is a good film on its own merits. Good performances, Denis Quaid did a very good job. It's sad that Hollywood would not even take this film seriously because, well I'll digress, someone would take offense or argue about my because opinions and I'm not a keyboard warrior. It's worth seeing in the theater, just take a Kleenex or 12.
