I completely agree. Billy expressed the idea very generally. It's possible Alex is one who himself is in need of hearing it. It's one thing to come to these realizations and face them, but it is also another to rise above it. Alex said it would be like him needing to climb another mountain, where I think it's just about learning to fly over the mountain and have that "above all" perspective of the world. You don't even need to be of any particular belief or faith. It's a matter of perspective. I think having people like Billy suggests on would be great to express that 'level' of seeing to as many people as possible. Perhaps instead of Alex himself, he could hire another guest anchor to bring in these types of guests. Alex doesn't need to do everything, but he can hire someone to do something.
