Former Oregon state legislator Jefferson Smith delivered a Ted Talk on the importance of expressing gratitude to those who often go unrecognized. He references his “favorite example of showing thanks is from a group that awards the Knope of the Week.”
The speech is worth the watch. Pay special attention at the 13 minute mark for the Knope reference.
