There are so many stories of dysfunction in the world, and we see it everywhere. Not only is it in real life, it’s in the stories we see told on TV or movies, read in books, it’s all over. I never realize I get as worn out watching stuff like that, until I see videos like this:
That’s what it’s all about, guys. That is true love.
I’ve been saving this video for Valentine’s Day because it’s so perfect! It’s a beautiful story, and it’s all true!
The people who made this video, Story Corps, specialize in collecting and relating real stories from real people. They’re like a mass electronic audio journal.
StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 30,000 interviews from more than 60,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at theAmerican Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to our weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition and on our Listen pages.
They’re amazing. DEFINITELY check them out, and if they have a station where you are, pay em a visit and tell them a story.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
