Are You a Winner?

In these two clips from Searching for Bobbie Fisher, Josh is playing the championship game of a chess match.  He has an epiphany where he sees how to win the game.  In an environment where fathers and coaches are instilling the idea that winning is everything (and that love is conditional) Josh astounds everyone with his act of compassion.  In doing so, he reveals to all the adults that what makes you special is not winning a chess game, but becoming a beautiful soul.

Explore the why behind any emotional response you had in watching these two clips in your journal.
