Thank You, Jon Stewart

. . . for being the voice of reason in times of chaos.  You know $hit’s hit the fan, when the best news commentator in a country is in fact — a comedian.  Playground politicians are frustrating enough.  Turning on a “proper” newscast, only to find party propaganda or the ratings equivalent to flashing a little cleavage, is just downright infuriating.  And so, I turn to you, Jon Stewart, for the *only* sane perspective on this Shutstorm – because clearly, farcical is what we’ve come to.

On a lighter, more inspirational note, check out Jon’s interview with Malala Yousafza, a 16 year old who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in reviving education in Pakistan.  Her vision, passion and courage will give you goosebumps!

 

And by the way, this is my *last* week in a YEAR OF GRATITUDE . . . and incidentally, the year that led me back home.  Next chapter?  I’m taking suggestions . . .

One thought on “Thank You, Jon Stewart”

  1. Don’t watch much mainstream TV, but happened to catch this, maybe online. Admirable young woman. And yes, kudos to Stewart. But maybe it takes a comedian to get through to people? We can’t “fix” all the things we see in the world, but laughter can help deal with it from one moment to the next. Supposed to be a great healer!
    Another year of gratitude? Like can there be too much? Or compassion.

    Cheers!
