Peace, mercy and kindness this Christmas

I admit it, I’m an ardent fan of The West Wing.

I love this scene most of all.

Toby Ziegler, the White House communications director finds a homeless veteran dead on the Mall.

As a tribute, he arranges for him to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

He’s joined by the president’s secretary, Mrs Landingham, who’s reminded every Christmas that she lost both of her sons in Vietnam.

Touching? I think so.
