My sister bought me Shirley Temple movies to watch while I was going through my cancer treatments. It helped me know much. I still have my Shirley Temple doll that I got when I was 8 yrs old. She was a wonderful person and a great role model for women.

In simpler times, what it was to feel American at the juncture of little Shirley Temple's welcome into our collective psyche gave our entire populace reason for existence - embracing naivete tinged with honorableness and fun-loving helpfulness. Idolizing her was as a prayerful homage to ourselves.

Shirley came into my life when I needed her the most(she seems to have a way of doing that)I was often scared or alone and I found hope in her films. someone once said something to the phrase of "As long as America's got Shirley Temple we'll be alright" I don't know what we'll do with out her.
