Not sure what to say?

Sometimes its a long, lonely road to the top.

Herb Brooks was and always will be a role model for me and countless others. It was a long road but the destination was worth it. No effort was too great and no task was too hard.
The part of the movie after they beat the Russians and he heads off into the tunnel to fully appreciate the moment by himself says it all about the man.
Thank you.

Godspeed, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

Great movie
May Gid bless the special people in this world ,even when they are gone the life they lived leaves us all with a special gift.
Herb Brooks did that for so many young men who changed the course of US Olympic ice hockey forever.

Hope his devoted wife and kids have peace. Wonderful story.

May God Bless Herb Brooks family and keep them close.

What a wonderful coach! Saw the movie "Miracle." He had a very clear and decisive approach to getting his point across and I think it really made an impression on his hockey players. They learned lifelong lessons from him. How proud he must have been. Many blessings to his family.

I watched the movie "Miracle" ,and I cried, not only because Herb was an inspiration, but a dedicated coach.It is so sad that he is now dead.

Just caught the last half hour or so of the film "Miracle" then looked Her Brooks up on the internet when learning he had died. Wonderful film but what a sad ending to a truly remarkable man. RIP.
