We don’t listen to each other enough. Stories are being lost because we don’t the take time to listen. We are a culture with amnesia. A culture with too few memories. Here is a great project.
StoryCorps is declaring November 28, 2008 the first annual National Day of Listening.
This holiday season, ask the people around you about their lives — it could be your grandmother, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. By listening to their stories, you will be telling them that they matter and they won’t ever be forgotten. It may be the most meaningful time you spend this year.
