StoryCorp

Today, on YouTube's front page, they're highlighting StoryCorp. I wanted to pass it along.

Danny and Annie's story that I watched. There are many more.

Oh, I love StoryCorps. Some of the stories I've heard on NPR's StoryCorps spot have reduced me to tears, and others to giggles.

All of them I heard made me cry, save one. They're amazing stories. Really good stuff.

You're welcome. Good to see you Gloria! How's the bike coming along?

Story Corps, it's just so powerful. Today, I found their website and listened to a story of an adult child and father. His one statement "what you see from me is what you put into me..." just brings me to my knees. The best a parent can do. And it wasn't his child to start with. He came to live with him at 15 years old. (Colbert Williams talks with Ralph Catania, his fifth grade math teacher who later became his legal guardian). A black child in a white man's home. Their relationship is just beautiful. Such acceptance and understanding. How does Story Corps do that? Find the nuggets? Really well done.

Obviously, I'm just blown away by them.
