The premise of the movie was what happens in a world without lying when you discover how to lie ef- fectively. It also showed how lying can sometimes be better than telling the actual truth. At one point in the movie, an adult son visits his mom in the nursing home but the nursing home in this world is called "A Sad Place for Hopeless Old People." At another point in the movie, a guy asked a girl if she would go out with him again and she just tells him, "No way, you're too ugly." Lying in this movie, actually for a time, becomes the righteous thing to do. However, in one point of the movie when the main character's mother is dying in the hos- pital and getting depressed about the eternal nothing- ness awaiting her, the son makes up a story about an eternal paradise where the "Man in the Sky" rules all and knows all. This aspect of the movie seemed to ironi- cally make the whole movie a lie. When we don't know the difference between the truth and lie, we will fall for anything. A world without a belief in something or one bigger than us would be a sad place for only hopeless people. In the movie, human morality was written on the backs of pizza boxes. In reality, when we adore pizza boxes better than the people around us, we get what we reap and that's no lie. 00umma 00storante J-Iosts SL Joseph Table Join Barbara Summa for her traditional Feast of St. Joseph dinner on Sunday, March 21, 2010.

No One Should Face It Alone REGISTER FOR THE WALK FOR HUNGER, MAY 2 The demand for emergency food has never been greater. Pantries and meal programs supported by Project Bread, Massachusetts' leading antihunger organization, have never been more crucial. The Walk for Hunger, Project Bread's annual fundraiser, has never been more timely. On May 2, thousands of people will come to Boston for the 20-mile pledge walk to raise money during the 42 nd Walk for Hunger. Every dollar, every mile, and every volunteer hour counts for our neighbors in need. Registration is now open to participate. Project Bread estimates there are 554,000 hungry people in Massachusetts. Hunger exists in nearly every commu- nity throughout the state. With the help of 40,000 Walkers and 2,000 Volunteers, Project Bread's Walk for Hunger funds over 400 emergency food programs in Massachusetts. Last year, these funded agencies served 57.3 million meals to those in need. Please consider becoming a Walker, a Volunteer, or mak- ing a donation. Project Bread's goal is to get everyone on board. No contribution is too small. Teams, as well as indi- viduals, are welcome and encouraged. To register, visit www.projectbread.org/walk or contact Project Bread at 617-723-5000.    by tJ,ost a photo A fundraiser for Republican Candidate for Governor Charlie Baker and Republican Candidate for Lt.

This class will le open to patients at the hospital and Ito outside community members every Sunday evening from 5:30-6:30PM. Over eighty people participated in the healing class which uses energy to move through and remove the blockages that cause illness. One doctor of rehabilitation medicine who traveled from New York City to attend, noted that "the class was very powerful, the atmosphere very relaxed -- there was such inspiring, hope-giving, posi- tive interactions with patients who were suffering from all kinds of problems, from advanced cancers, emotional problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, and immune system diseases to folks with back pain and migraines." Tong Ren Healing developed from decades of clinical work by Tom Tam, who has writ- ten 14 books on healing subjects. As a li- censed clinical acupuncturist, Tom was able to integrate Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western anatomy and physiology to create a much more powerful approach to healing. The healing energy is potentiated in group settings, and many participants reported feeling almost immediate symptom- atic relief and a physical sensation of warmth, tingling, and "feeling better" as the healing energy flowed through the collec- tive unconscious of everyone in the room. Tong Ren Healing classes are held throughout Massachusetts and all over the world. For further information, contact Fedele del Bene, at 617-523-0056 and online at TongRenSpecialist.com Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital is lo- cated close to North Station and the T, Green Line, Orange Line and commuter rail; also there is public parking available. The class is located on the 8 th Floor. R.J.
