President's letters

Myrna Maloney Flynn

Before he passed away in 2017, I asked my father to share some of what he'd learned throughout his 86 years, words I could remember him by and which would keep me focused after he was gone. He offered one simple yet, in our culture, particularly challenging directive: "Be who you are."

At that time, I was a relatively scared, closeted pro-lifer, fearful of admitting my belief, let alone sharing it publicly. When he took his last breath, and I witnessed a human life ending, the fear in my heart died along with him and was replaced by a fiery will to not only speak out but to compassionately persuade. My letters over the years to MCFL's supporters, and to those on our email list who may be opposed to me, fulfill Dad's life-changing advice. They are each dedicated to him and my mother, who gave me life against what society deemed reasonable, bucking popular opinion.

Thank you for reading. I invite you to share this page -- and be who you are. Myrna Maloney Flynn.

  • Against the current: Our 2024 events

    We talk about how important it is to “have values,” as if they were beads or a string of marbles in a pouch.

Bennett, “The Children’s Book of Virtues”
