Stay Strong-Hoorah

Love it! It has a good message... Do the right thing at any cost, If that is not a good message? I'm willing to be wrong! But parents, of course should point out that Rambo had a very dangerous problem and only seen one way out! Killing over girl who broke up with you for another man is not reasonable! - "All is fare in Love & War"
