MY TURN: Taking stock

We all have our revered holiday traditions.

One of our family favorites is to watch the classic Christmas movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart.

It's the one where Stewart plays George Bailey, a despondent man who gets a chance to see what life in his small town would have been like without him. He is overwhelmed to discover what a big, positive difference his life had on so many things in the fictional town of Bedford Falls.

Watching the movie always gives us a chance to take stock of the things that we do that make a difference in other people's lives. And if the list isn't long enough or good enough, our opportunity to make some better resolutions for the New Year is just around the corner.

From all of us here at WMC-TV5, may your holiday celebrations be joyful and rewarding.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this editorial or anything else, email or call 901-726-0546.
