I have watched The Newsroom Series 3 for the past two weekends. The whole six episodes. If this isn’t one of the best TV shows ever made, I don’t know what is.
I have derived inspiration and strength from watching it. Inspiration that the fight for good and to eradicate ‘evil’ is always important, and strength to commence my battle against the evil currently existing in my world.
I have commenced my letter writing campaign. I think one of the hardest things about today’s very connected society, is that we are no longer individuals. We are now employee numbers or grouped individuals. On paper, not much differentiates one of us from any other. But we are all our own unique selves, with our own contexts and our own perspectives and our own ways of being and doing. So trying to launch my first letter, capturing part of myself to stand out, whilst still being appropriate is not easy.
But I will get there.
And at the end of this battle, which I may or may not win, I will be able to hold my head high knowing that I fought the good fight wholly true to who I am and what I stand for.
