  • Born On The Fourth Of July: Part-10 - with Tom Cruise in a wheelchair
    (YouTube)

    "Though he tries to maintain his dignity as a Marine, Ron gradually becomes disillusioned, feeling the effects of his paralysis on his life, and realizes that all the things he was taught from birth, like honor, patriotism, and courage, were illusions which he would give up any day to get his legs back... 
    After returning home drunk one night after having a barroom confrontation with a World War II veteran who expresses no sympathy to Ron,
    Ron's disillusionment grows severe enough that he has an intense fight with his mother, yelling at her that there was no God, and that they
    murdered babies in Vietnam disregarding what Christianity actually taught."
