A Timeless Message for the Heart: No shouda, woulda, coulda’s
Story-telling is as old an art-form as humanity itself. Before we had books to illustrate, we had cave walls. Story-telling is a great way, and I would add the only way, to touch a stranger’s heart in the same way that you would touch your own family members’ hearts. It’s how we pass down information through the generations. You may forget where the family photo-album is, but you won’t forget the stories your family shared with you.
Watch this video, and remember that stories are worth sharing. Oh, and never miss an opportunity to say “I love you” to those you love:
This video was created by StoryCorps. It’s a non-profit organization dedicated to recording the true stories of average American’s. The stories are collected, recorded, and stored in the Library of Congress. The neat thing about this project is that you can record your own story. I first became familiar with StorCorp in 2003 when I heard they setup recording stations in Grand Central Station. Anyone could walk in and share a story. I later heard some of the stories shared by WWII veterans and their wives. Suddenly, WWII wasn’t something I read in a book, it was what happened to these people sharing their stories with me. Stores help us record our personal histories on the hearts of others.
