Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Profiles In Courage Part 3

Founded by Father Edward Flanagan in 1917, Boys Town has a 90 year history of saving children and healing families. What began as a small home for homeless boys has grown into a nationwide organization with sites in a dozen states and the District of Columbia, providing more than 51,000 children each year with a safe, caring, loving environment where they gain confidence to get better.
Here you can read, chapter by chapter, how Boys Town began, and how they carry on the mission to Change the Way America Cares for Her Children and Families.
