It’s a Wonderful Life
December 24, 2011
Released in 1946, It’s a Wonderful Life still captures the hearts of new viewers over six decades later. This movie is also a wonderful metaphor for your power to change the world. It’s one of my personal all-time favorites.
In the film, George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) spends his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls. But come one Christmas Eve, he is dismayed and suicidal over a misplaced loan, and the plotting of the evil millionaire, Mr. Potter, who wants to take over the town.
Just when George’s spirit is about to be broken, his guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would’ve turned out had he never been born.
The ending to this movie, if any of you still haven’t seen it, will bring tears to your eyes and remind you of how many lives YOU touch every day.
Why not start a tradition with your family, and watch this inspiring movie together tonight?
