COT: “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.”
At Boys Town, the quote above is our motto. The story behind the motto goes something like this: When Father Flanagan first opened the farm, polio was affecting many children in the US. One boy named Howard, had polio, and could not walk on his own. Some of the other boys took turns carrying him to and from school, church, and sporting events. One afternoon Father Flanagan saw a boy named Rueben carrying Howard up a flight of stairs. Father asked Rueben, “Isn’t he getting heavy?” Rueben infamously answered, “He ain’t heavy Father, he’s my brother.” The boys were blood brothers, rather they were Boys Town brothers. The bond the built together in community together, made them family.
We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools. – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
“Brotherhood is the good deed, service to others. Brotherhood is food, shelter and rainment, yes, but it is also the word of hope, the pat on the back, the open door, the warm hearth.” ― P. L. Prattis
“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12
The society can feel like noisy a place. Many things seem to be trying to divide us from our neighbors. Who is in front, behind, and beside you are what matters. How we treat others matters.
