365 Gratitude Project – Day 34: StoryCorps

February 3, 2017

I’m grateful for NPR’s StoryCorps project. Every Friday morning I listen to my local NPR station KUOW 94.9FM, and I also subscribe to their podcast, and they provide the means for people to tell their stories. StoryCorps’ mission is to “preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and creat a more just and compassionate world.” In their words: “We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations.” After each story is recorded, it is cataloged and preserved for posterity – what a legacy!
