I know this is tv but this is what we should aspire to.

Try and watch this without getting choked up. Someone on YouTube said it was based on the story of Jesse L. Carpenter, a homeless veteran who froze to death on the streets.

  1. Thank you for posting this beautiful excerpt from The West Wing. I loved that TV series and the character, Toby, was such a big part of it. ….. Tear jerker for sure though.

  2. Done right, TV can hold its head up among all the media out there.

    Thanks for posting. A good reminder we should spend some money on veterans before they get to the funeral part. Happy New Year, Stacy.

  3. I just meant it’s tv and not real life, and I wish these were real politicians to admire. But I absolutely agree that we need to take proper care of veterans, instead of giving tax breaks to the wealthy.

    Happy New Year to you too!
