SOMETHING TO STAND FOR ~ Untold Stories of America's Heros

 If you love true stories, you’ll love this collection of real-life tales of American Heroes, all narrated by Mike Rowe!

Many thanks to TBN for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own. 

“Something to Stand For” isn’t a political movie, “merely a patriotic one.” 

When I had an opportunity to view a movie about the untold stories of America's heroes, I thought that SOMETHING TO STAND FOR was a movie about the men who fought in the past wars of our country. I thought that this movie was going to be a political movie. 

 Once I watched the movie, I quickly learned that this movie was not about politics. I learned that this was a patriotic movie. This movie had many short stories about people from the past, some that I learned about my history books and some that I had never heard about. Each story that Mike Rowe told grabbed my attention and I gained new knowledge about the history of America. I was glad that I had the option to pause the movie, so I could use the internet to learn more about these American heroes.

A movie that you need to watch before July 4th

 American citizens celebrate the Fourth of July, America's birthday, with festivals, parades, fireworks, barbecues, and other festive activities but how many know the real reason for this day? 

 The 4th of July is very significant in American history. It marks the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted (July 4, 1776) and the United States officially became its own nation. 

SOMETHING TO STAND FOR is a movie that you need to see before the 4th of July. It is a movie that is filled with many untold stories of heroes who stood up and fought for many things so we can celebrate freedom.

Mike Rowe's Reason for Making This Movie 

~ info below is in Mike Rowe's words from https://www.facebook.com/TheRealMikeRowe

 SOMETHING TO STAND FOR was inspired by the ongoing war on the symbols of America, a war of vandalism waged by those who believe the present can be improved by erasing the past. Obviously, I have no expectation that this movie will persuade anyone who dons a mask and defaces our national memorials to rethink their worldview because I’m pretty sure none of those people will ever see this movie. I do, however, believe there are lots of people on both sides of the aisle who are disgusted by their behavior and still love America, in spite of the imperfections of our founders, and the obvious fact we have not yet achieved the “more perfect union” they envisioned. This movie is for them – that still sizeable population who identify as Americans, first and foremost. Americans of all races who genuinely care about our shared history, and understand that even though our nation is still a work in progress - and always will be - there are still a great many things worth standing for.

~ There is nothing political about a film that celebrates the principles on which this country was formed. Nor is there anything political about celebrating the people who have defended those principles over the centuries – especially those who died doing so. Unless of course, you’ve been taught that our country is fundamentally flawed, systemically racist, incurably intolerant, and beyond redemption. 

~ Those people exist, and I’m afraid their numbers are growing. But they are not defined by a political party – they are defined by their contempt of America. And while those people are more than welcome to come and see the film, I didn’t make it for them; I made it because of them. I made it because there’s a big difference between political rivals who want to improve this country because they love it, and those who wish to transform it because they hate it.

My 4th of July celebration will have a new refreshed meaning

This 4th of July as my husband puts up the American flag, I will be thinking about the stories that I watched in this movie. I will be remembering those who took a stand for our country. I will be thinking about my sons who are in the military. I will be proud to live in America and I will stand for the flag.

Why do we stand for the National Anthem and the American flag?

We stand for the National Anthem and the American flag for many reasons and many have to do with taking a stand for things that we will not stand for.

~ We will not stand for injustice

~ We will not stand for bad manners

~ We will not stand for our enemies

~ We will not stand for slavery

~ We stand for freedom

~ We stand for independence

~ We stand to honor those who died to make our country better
