Thanks for giving us such a wonderful show. It really educates and helps me to learn to be a better human being.
This was such a timely broadcast both for me in my persoanl life as I grapply with my own weaknesses and as a citizen watching the destructive nature of our political campaigns. I can't help wondering where some of our politicans are in their sense of compassion.
