There is a marvelous film – a true story about real people that can awaken our friends and neighbors to the reality we all face in a most dramatic, convincing way. It’s an excellent teaching tool.
Losing Our Sons is a personal story of two fathers: Melvin Bledsoe is a small business owner from Memphis, Tennessee, whose son, Carlos, converted to Islam and murdered US Army Recruiter Andy Long in Little Rock in 2009. Daris Long, a retired Marine from Conway, Arkansas, is Andy’s father. Both fathers, as you can see from the 2 minute trailer, are extraordinarily powerful, eloquent men.
Take a look at the trailer at losingoursons.com and then consider buying the film. This is a good, quick and effective way to convince Americans that we indeed have a problem in this country that urgently needs to be addressed.
Here’s what the experts say about Losing Our Sons:
“Riveting, powerful, educational and a must see for every American”
BRIGITTE GABRIEL, Founder President of ACT! For America
“The film stands as a warning to Americans about the consequences of a failing civic leadership.”
DANIEL PIPES, Founder and director of the Middle East Forum
“A must watch for Washington policy makers, too many of whom refuse to acknowledge the obvious threats”
FRANK J. GAFFNEY, JR. Reagan Pentagon official, President, Center for Security Policy
“A wrenching wake-up call.”
ANDREW C. MCCARTHY, Former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York
Losing Our Sons was produced by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, a Boston-based organization that exposes Islamic extremists across the country and empowers local citizens to fight radical Islam in their own communities.
