I’ve been watching “The West Wing” on Netflix for the past week and it feels good. This is what I believe government to be. An administration staff that believes in the president, they all have the freedom to express themselves and respect the president for what he believes in. The relationships are genuine and real. Why can’t it be this way? To have a person in charge that has compassion and empathy for his fellow human beings.
I watched this series about 5 years ago and many of the the issues they discuss are so relevant to what is happening today. I know, it’s only a tv show but the dynamics within the office are what I hope someday to be. The heartfelt emotions between the staff and the ultimate respect for the president is quite profound. This type of show inspires me and gives me hope and to know that a new, special edition had been made is a good sign of things to come.
