Tonight is the opening night of the new movie Monumental, a documentary produced by Kirk Cameron.
Kirk Cameron's documentary "Monumental" is one of his most personal project - the father of six children wondered what was in store for his children... with America's future looking scary - Kirk retraced the footsteps of the pilgrims (then called separatists) and understand who they were and what drove them to a mission that would sacrifice their lives to establish the free and wealthy nation we live in....and what we need to do to restore America back to its greatness.
Kirk Cameron, the television and film actor noted for his work in the 2008 inspirational hit Fireproof as well as memorable roles on ABC's Growing Pains recently said of his new project,
“It seems like yesterday my pouffy mullet and parachute pants were all the rage and Prince had a #1 hit on the radio. Now I’m married to the most beautiful woman, raising six children and living the American dream. But each day as I look around, I’m left with a sinking feeling that America is losing her way. Big time. My thoughts go straight to my children. I want them to have a bright and wonderful future, but what will life will be like for them when I'm gone? The soul of our country is sick, and history shows me we are headed for disaster if we don't change course now.
Here's my hunch: Could it be that we have simply forgotten what made us such a great nation in the first place? So many people are waiting around for our leaders to come up with a grand plan to save our nation. But is that really how America got started? What if things actually work the other way around? What if real change doesn’t start at the top but at the bottom? What if the best place to begin transforming our country is not the Oval Office but the dinner table?
Monumental is my journey to find answers to these questions. I’m retracing the footsteps of our Founders from England to America in the hope of rediscovering our true ‘national treasure’ so that we can use it to restore our country.”
When asked why he decided to make the film, Cameron said, “This is one of the most important journeys of my life. America is worth fighting for, and so are our families. We can still be a "city upon a hill." But we need to work together. With God's help, we can turn this thing around. Someone once said, "Footprints in history are not made sitting down." I couldn’t agree more. So, I’m asking every American to stand with me in this monumental moment to rediscover America's true national treasure. Our children and our children's children will thank us for it.”
