'Let the healing continue'

Saw the movie finally this past weekend. Had to work up to it. I was a 13 year old Logan County resident at the time. Both my older brother and sister attended Marshall. I moved out west in the late 70s. I would mention the tragedy to people in conversation and they wouldn't know what I was talking about. This movie relays the devastating impact the tragedy had on the community. Let the healing continue...

My husband and I just saw the movie. We had never heard of Marshall before. Now you will always be part of us.

My wife and I saw the movie last night. It is a powerfull movie. I remember the accident but did not realize it's impact. As the parent of a current football player for another university, the movie had a sobering inpact on me. A powerful message from this movie is that college football is about young men-boys- working hard to realize a dream. Most fans look at it as just winning games and championships for them to brag about. It is sad that they miss the real pleasure of college sports!

God bless the Marshall family.
