We can debate forever why the Nancy Grace's and J.E.B.'s and George W.'s of this world sail through life unscathed, while those who contribute to the common good are forced to travel a road unexpected, a fork that took them in a direction that taxed their human spirit, yet throughout the toll absolutely showed the rest of the world the meaning of true character.

Be the Ed Murrow of kids.
