|Taken from What about me|
But the most important thing to take from the movie is the struggle endured by Ralston. Most people probably would not make the choice he made and amputate their own arm. Hell, I wouldn't do that. It takes a lot of courage and strength and desire to live to cut off one's own arm for the greater goal of living. And it just makes you think of how to be grateful for living and hopefully not having to undergo such an experience.
