Yesterday, Marlo Thomas learned that she would be receiving the Congressional Medal of Freedom from President Obama. Congratulations Marlo you are part of an amazing group of recipients!
Last March I attended the 40th anniversary of Free to Be You and Me at the Paley Media Center. Marlo Thomas, Alan Alda, Rosie Greer and a host of others connected to the book, CD, LP and DVD were part of the program or in the audience.
It occured to me then that Free to Be You and Me was just as relevant for families and children today.
Free to Be You and Me was also created by an historically incredible crew of writers, musicians, performers, producers, etc. I started sending copies of the DVD to friends to share with their families. I need to send a few more.
Every family (even families of 1) should experience Free to Be You and Me in some form. Own it and share or borrow a copy from a FREE public library to enjoy and return so that others can do the same. Or, visit the Paley Media Center and enjoy the video in their library when you visit New York. It is a great NYC movie.
