Summary

As a journalist, I have the ability to tell stories from every point of view -- from the miner trapped underground, to the housewife campaigning door to door. Better yet, I can invite other people into those memories -- putting them behind the camera and inside the story. I can show people what it's like to be the fireman, the politician; to feel loss, to feel accomplishment -- in a minute or less. That's the power of journalism.
