It was a Friday evening, winter was here and there was about a month left till Christmas. Class just finished and I was packing my bag, ready to make my way back to my boarding house. I stepped out of the classroom, even though it wasn't even 5pm yet, the sun already set and the sky was pitch black - "Classic English weather," I thought.
It Has Nothing to Do with Religion
I am an atheist. Throughout my childhood I went to Christian schools, from kindergarten to middle school to secondary school. I had been to Sunday services, Bible readings, prayed at assemblies almost every morning—yet, it didn't convince me.

Dunkirk: Reveals the Unnecessary, Unwanted Deaths That Come with Wars
Within the first five minutes of the movie, I was glad that I didn't pick 4DX screening! Bullets, bombs, screaming... planes, crashes, explosions. The film was packed with wave after wave of intense events, it just keeps making you jump out of your seat—and your skin, too.

In this day and age, you don't see many inspirational movies anymore. Inspirational people are everywhere, but movies brave enough to tell their stories? Not nearly enough. Don't get me wrong, I do love the good old Marvel and DC Comics blockbusters. But they only help you escape from reality for a brief moment, after that you're right back to where you started. On the contrary, real stories are cruel but almost always carry a valuable lesson - so it takes a great deal of courage to tell the truth, and even more so to listen.
