Reverend Shaw Moore preaches about the importance of trusting children first to make them trustworthy instead of letting them wander looking for that virtue on their own. Reverend Moore is played by John Lithgow in the drama musical, Footloose.


Print transcript

REVEREND MOORE: I'm standing up here before you today with a very troubled heart. You see, my friends I've always insisted on taking responsibility for your lives. But, I'm really like a first-time parent who makes mistakes and tries to learn from them. And like that parent I find myself at that moment when I have to decide. Do I hold on or do I trust you to yourselves? Let go and hope that you've understood at least some of my lessons. If we don't start trusting our children how will they ever become trustworthy?
