Along yesterday's post theme, here's a clip of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington", the 1939 Frank Capra film about political idealism that almost made me want to become a politician. I wrote a paper on this film for my government class, and the third act can still bring me to tears every time. If you haven't had the chance to see it, maybe this video will convince you to. And if you haven't seen it in a while, let it remind you of something that is still true, no matter how often we forget: one person can make a difference.
