Boys Town is an inspiring movie. Father Flanagan's words, "There's no such thing as a bad boy" rings in my ears. The movie provides a good lesson to us all...never give up on anyone, there is always hope. A lesson we learn from St. Monica who prayed for her son Augustine for 20 plus years. Father Flanagan said, somewhere in there my son, is your heart, it has just taken me longer to find it. May this movie inspire us all....Ted

Boys Town today

I am happy to say that the good work of Fr. Flanagan continues today. The movie is a good reminder of what it's all about.....the boys and girls and families it helps.
Happy Thanksgiving 2010!!


I love this movie so much. It's cute and for once girls (which I am one) don't cause ALL of the drama. A must see.
