My holiday gift to the labor movement

For me, the spirit of the holidays and the spirit of the movement are the same.

It's about the miracle of a shinning light that may fade, but never goes out, (Hanukkah)
a leader who washes the feet of his followers, (Christmas)
of building a community based on respect, (Kwanzaa)
and of fighting on another day and another year and never giving up. (New Years)

I can think of no one who said it better than Jimmy Stewart in the movie It's a Wonderful Life.

What he speaks about is the spirit of the season and the reason we do what we do.

I share this clip as my gift to you, my sisters and brothers.
