FAITH ON TELETHON -- "TRULY AMAZING"
Faith Hill is impressed that the four rival major television networks are able to put aside their rivalries and take part in the benefit simulcast scheduled for Friday night.
"Now is a time to pitch in, to do whatever you can do," said Hill. . "The show of unity between day to day rivals, ABC, CBS, NBC and others is inspiring and I believe could be forgotten with all the celebrities involved. I'm proud to be able to be part of something that I truly hope will become more then a one-time event. I'd love to see all of these people together again in front of a live audience next year and I hope that millions tune in and pledge whatever they can to make this effort the overwhelming success that it should be."
Faith also has some concerns, as a parent, about the well-being of America's children.
"As a parent I'm concerned for our youth, but determined to make it better for them," she said. "While it's easy to feel helpless and fearful, we all need to do our part in making their world a better place. We need to allow those emotions to turn into optimism, bravery and defiance so that their future is as bright as it can be. I believe most important of all is the commitment that we owe to them, never to forget."
