CGiii Comment

It has taken nearly 30 years...getting this from stage to screen...I remember, I saw the play - in London with Martin Sheen - way back then...when my heart was ripped out.
 
30 years later...with all those friends gone, my heart shattered all over again - watching and remembering...when our carefree naïveté was unrelentingly pulled from under our stubborn feet.
 
For those of us, of a certain age...as survivors, for that is what we became - it is our duty to remember, recount and reconcile...those dark, dark days.
 
Mr Kramer, Mr Murphy, Mr Pitt...you have done your duty.
 
For that...I, we, thank you.
