Storyline

Albert, Mary and Jonathan - all deeply impacted by the fire at the School For the Blind - continue to deal with their emotions. Charles helps Jonathan realize that his alcoholism has taken a toll on his son, Andy, while Mary snaps out of her shock when she hears the melody of the music box Albert had purchased for her as a gift. But Mary's initial panic soon becomes Albert's when he finally understands his carelessness caused the fire that killed her baby and best friend's mother. Albert runs away, leading Charles and a reformed Jonathan to frantically search for the lad. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Dramatic episode
8 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

It has often been mooted that "little house" was gentle nice series which did not raise any questions .Actually these remarkable series,my all-time favorite ,broached child abuse,drugs ,religious fanatism,rape,racism,suicide...not exactly a rosy world.

"May we make them proud" is one of the most dramatic episodes in the whole series;two characters die ,one character feels guilty and another one goes crazy.No happy end ,the last pictures depicting a gathering around two graves,no comic relief (it's the only episode where Harriet Oleson appears and where she does not make the audience laugh).

After watching this episode ,Jack Lee Thompson offered Melissa Sue Anderson the leading part of "Happy birthday" .
