Watching reruns of The West Wing never gets old at my house. We watch all the episodes in order a couple of  times a year. Maybe that's why when I see this video of Martin Sheen, who played President Bartlet on the TV show, I feel like someone with real authority is speaking to me. Or perhaps it's just his important message that has the authority. 

Either way, his point is well taken. There are real people who work in the fields who pick the food that we so conveniently grab from the grocery store, and sometimes they suffer for the sake of our convenience.
