Jennifer L. said:
In October 1972 Parrado, his rugby teammates, and their fans from Uruguay were flying to Chile to play a match against the Chilean national team when the aircraft carrying the 45 people, crashed on a remote high-altitude glaciated slope in the Andes Mountains. Thirty years after the disaster Parrado, one of the leaders during the disaster, decided that he had to set the record straight about what some of the survivors said about others when they were interviewed as young men by Piers Paul Read for his book Alive. A thought provoking story about the will to survive and the power of love.

Hi, last night I saw a film on this real story. These people were hard enough to survive, they fought as much as they could but after all it was the will of Allah (God) to save them after all these tough days. They must thank God and pary for him for this second life he offered them.. they must believe in him and in his messenger Prophet Mohammed PBUH before they meet death again. God send all the messengers including Mosas, Christ and Mohammed (the last messenger) to pary for him and believe in his oneness, but many still believe that Christ is the son of God! is that logic? How can God has a son? He must have a wife then ... and then sons will fight ... etc... Allah (God) is one... Christ is his messenger who was sent before Prophet Mohammed, may Allah have mercy on all messengers.
