Amber Alert (movie)

 I was up WAY before I should have been this AM. I watched this movie on Netflix and lets just say WOW! If you have NOT seen this I would suggest you watch it. Just when you think it's "it" and this happens a few times throughout the movie...you discover there is more. I was so shaken by this movie that I sat and just cried like a baby. I felt my heart racing when the people were in crisis...it was just too real. Why was it too real? Because it was ACTUAL footage of an ACTUAL event.

It was heart wrenching to think that these kids tried SO SO hard to do the right thing...and the police did so little.

QUESTION: Do you all pay attention to the Amber Alet signs posted on highway overpasses? I will admit to half heartedly doing this...but that will change now.

i pay attention to the amber alert. They have an app for the phone as well, here in NJ we also have Senior alert for the senior citizens.

Last year, when mom had her foot surgery, was the first time I had actually seen the signs in use. I've seen the big things off the road. Senior alert (like NJ), stolen car alert and amber alert.
I will have to check this movie out

I will have to watch it. But I am a compulsive cryer.... Soooo we'll see how I do...

I try to check out amber alerts to make sure they're real. If I deem they are, I'll pass them along. Unfortunately so many bogus alerts go around you don't what to believe.... It makes it bad on the real ones that fall through the cracks....

I have not heard of this. If it made you cry then I don't think I want to watch it. I cry when Frosty melts. Anyway, I do pay attention to Amber Alerts and always looking.
