As you all know, I’ve been dropping lists of the best content for all of you to watch, and I hope you’ve been following the suggestions.
After watching “Black Hawk Down” for about the 500th time, I’ve determined you simply can’t watch the end of the film about the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia without getting emotional.
You just can’t. It’s not possible. You show me a man who says they don’t get emotional at the final scene, and I’ll show you somebody who is a liar.
In the final moments of the movie, Josh Hartnett’s character sits next to the body of a fallen teammate and talks about how nobody asks to be a hero. It just sometimes turns out that way.
In what might be the most heartbreaking line in the whole movie, Hartnett says, “I’m going to talk to ma and pa when I get home, okay.”
Watch the final seconds below.
Now, sit there and honestly try to tell me that you can watch it without getting emotional. It gets me every time.
It’s gets me every damn time, and I’m sure it’ll get me next time too.
Let me know what you think in the comments. I think most of you will agree with me.
