It has happened only a few times in my life and it happened one recent Saturday night: At the end of a movie, the entire audience applauded. It was stirring.

“Lone Survivor” is an important movie for every American to see — a two-hour glimpse of Navy SEALs in Afghanistan, fighting a war on terror in a land vastly different from ours in geography and culture.

At times, the movie was difficult to watch because of its unrelenting intensity, but I left feeling extra proud to be an American and eternally grateful to these courageous special forces who volunteer to fight to the death for our freedom.

Apparently, the rest of the audience agreed.
