If you haven’t heard of Welles Crowther, you are wrong

Maybe the easiest piece I’ve ever had to write. In lieu of September 11, this is a necessary post. This Outside the Lines segment was actually produced a year ago, but has been blowing up as of late, naturally. I had never heard of Welles until Sunday, so I apologize if my title was a bit condescending — I just really wanted you to click on this link and watch the video. Take 13 minutes of your time to learn about a person who was better than you or me. When you don’t feel like getting out of bed in the morning or are mad at your mom or dad over some spilled milk, maybe this video will remind you that you’re still living a life that Welles gave his up for.
