set when they are young, and yet their lives turn out to have
meaning, though it is sometimes difficult to see. Caught in
a scandal brought about by the evil machinations of his nemesis,

been worthwhile. Standing on a bridge, he considers suicide.
But an angel intervenes and shows him how many lives in his
town would have been impoverished without the subtle influence
of his sterling character.
Notice how George overcomes his belief that
his life is worthless when an angel grants his wish that he
was never born. He sees what his own life would be like without

exist any more?

without you and notice how your contribution would be missing.
