Inspired by Frank Capra's 1946 film It's A Wonderful Life, which was based on the short story The Greatest Gift by Phillip Van Doren Stern.

Told he was worth more dead than alive, A wingless angel changed George's perspective. Had George not been born, his town would be Hell. When Clarence earned his wings, it rang a bell.
