It's a Wonderful Life

Tonight is opening night for "It's a Wonderful Life" at the Children's Theatre of Knoxville.  I have had a blast working with this great group of young actors - their talent, professionalism and enthusiasm has been a blessing. This weekend's shows are tonight at 7pm, Saturday at 1pm and 5pm and Sunday at 3pm, then continues for two more weekends after that.

Please make time to come see this adaptation of the holiday classic with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. There is something special and meaningful about being reminded, especially this time of year - especially this time of the Age, that each of us MATTER.  We all affect everyone around us, we all have the potential to do great things, and there has never been anyone born that would've been better off not being on the Earth.  What we do with our lives is up to us, and we shouldn't be convinced everything's out of our hands.

Remember, even in a small way, you can do something important.  No one is truly alone.  And no man is a failure if he has friends.
