The power of television stretches so much further than the living rooms, computers, and smartphones it's consumed on -- What's done on TV has the power to transform a community, touch a soul, and live on in the words used to tell a story.

This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and even it can inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it's nothing but wires and lights in a box.
-Edward R. Murrow
