Christmas on Division Street
Even though it is months before Christmas, I decided to write about this heartwarming movie starring Fred Savage and the late, Hume Cronyn ... because it will be airing on the Gospel Music Channel, August 5th at 2 PM.
It is such a touching, moving story. I don't think it is good for small children, however those over 12 years old, would understand and learn compassion from the boy (played by Savage) who helps a homeless man (Cronyn), inspite of others discouraging his kindness.
It was once available on Video (Vhs), but I don't believe it is available on DVD, yet.
Based on a true story, this isn't a story at all... but reality for many people in our world today. The film reminds us all at Christmastime and all year long... how it is more important to give than receive and to appreciate what we do have!
I hope many of you will have a chance to watch it.
