The Cokeville Miracle

Kamron Wixom recognizes the courage of his fellow survivors for sharing their sacred experiences at the risk of ridicule and suffering emotionally by revisiting such traumatic experiences that took place the day of the Cokeville miracle.

The Cokeville Miracle


As time progressed, however, a different story emerged in this highly religious and largely Mormon community. It became a story of a miracle rather than a tragedy. Oral histories, memoirs and drawings began to reveal a narrative of fortune rather than misfortune. Survivors began to tell their stories through a spiritual lens. They increasingly spoke about their memories in public with professional psychologists, church officials and community counselors.

Although the actual events took place in a small Wyoming community where the majority of residents belonged to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Christensen decided it would be more appropriate to tell the spiritually themed story from a nondenominational perspective, catering to a wider Christian audience and sharing a general religious messages of hope, family values, the power of prayer and recognizing God's miracles in a person's life.

"The prayer theme is pretty heavy-handed," Christensen said. "But I decided early on that I liked the theme (that) God still does miracles today and his hand can be in our lives. You need to look for it, appreciate it and be thankful for it. Blessings are there if you look for them."

The film looks at the real life miracle that happened in the US community of Cokeville on May 16th 1986. David and Doris Young took an elementary school hostage before detonating a bomb inside a classroom that held every teacher and student in the school. Police officer Ron Hartley, whose children were inside the classroom has to fight his skepticism and unbelief as he hears eye witness accounts from the students of a miraculous, heavenly intervention.

Overall The Cokeville Miracle is an extremely inspirational and faith-building thriller. The fact that it is a true story will leave you astounded and awestruck. If you are looking for proof that miracles still happen, that God exists, this is a film to watch.

He saw no angels in the room but Max Excell says he strongly feels that he and approximately 150 other people are alive today because of the miracles that happened at the Cokeville, Wyoming elementary school on June 5, 1986. 041b061a72
