A Christmas Healing December 14, 200

The television networks – with the exception of West Wing – have mostly refused to deal with the terrorist attacks on their entertainment programs. But Martha Williamson, executive producer of “Touched by an Angel” has and she’s done it in a powerful script. The show, now on Saturday nights, airs at a special time Sunday, December 16 at 8 p.m. eastern time. Don’t miss this one.

It’s about a young boy who can’t believe his favorite teacher was killed at the World Trade Center. His mother, a mayor of a small New York town, is into denial about other things in her life. I won’t tell you the rest of the plot for fear of spoiling it, but the ending is wonderful and uplifting and very much worth watching with your family. It’s called “I’ll be Home for Christmas.”

Spread the word. Let’s make this a ratings blockbuster for goodness and decency and God. It’s a healing show and a hopeful one, too. Sunday, December 16, 8 p.m. eastern. “Touched by an Angel.” I’m Cal Thomas in Washington.
