In 1917, outside the parish of Fátima, Portugal, a 10-year-old girl and her two younger cousins witness multiple visitations of the Virgin Mary, who tells them that only prayer and suffering will bring an end to World War I. As secularist government officials and Church leaders try to force the children to recant their story, word of the sighting spreads across the country, inspiring religious pilgrims to flock to the site in hopes of witnessing a miracle. What they experience will transform their quiet lives and bring the attention of a world yearning for peace. Based on real-life events and starring Joaquim de Almeida (“Queen of the South”), Goran Višnjić (Beginners), Stephanie Gil (Terminator: Dark Fate) and Lúcia Moniz (Love, Actually), with Sônia Braga (Aquarius) and Harvey Keitel (The Piano, The Irishman), Fatima is an uplifting story about the power of faith. I really enjoyed the screening of Fatima . It's a very moving story about faith and hope and the belief that their is a higher power . Won't it be great if their was a heaven and their would be no pain or suffering . And we could be with our loved one's once again. The 3 children in the movie believe without a doubt that their is a higher power and if we pray and believe that we will .

We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas break and a birthday at Medieval Times. As we walked in we were given crowns we had the blue crown. And then as we walked into the main hall they had all sorts of Medieval period things you could purchase . As we waited in the main hall they called my nephew to where the queen was. She knighted him with a sword to celebrate his birthday and they gave him a picture.
As we stepped into the arena we sat in the blue section , every color section had a knight that went with the color of your crown (Yellow, Green etc.) . We cheered for our knight he was blue. He battled against other knights ( Jousted ,Ring catch, combat battle) . At the end our blue knight was victorious and the queen gave him a ribbon.
