A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

If you ever want to be inspired, watch Fred Rogers' 1969 speech to Congress about the importance of PBS. It moved me to tears.
