Something that Made me Cry a Bit

In Writing on October 8, 2008 at 7:39 pm

As I was driving to school one morning down the tiny, and often poetically foggy, Highway M, I heard an especially interesting and emotional story. It was Friday, so NPR’s “Morning Edition” was sharing pieces from “StoryCorps,” a group of journalists that go around the country in search of real American narratives in short form.

This piece, titled “A Love That Defied A Cancer Diagnosis,” could be misplaced as a sappy pre-teen paperback, but I assure you there is no cliche in the emotion. Take a listen here, or read (but I highly recommend hearing the story told by its real-life protagonist).

  1. Hi Steve,

    Thanks so much for this post about StoryCorps! Hearing these reactions to our stories and project means so much to the organization.

    I wanted to let you know that we’ve released our book “Listening Is An Act of Love,” with some of the most remarkable stories we’ve collected, in paperback, and also launched a set of do-it-yourself tips and tools to make it possible for everyone to record these conversations. As the holidays draw nearer, we’re hoping to pass on a gift idea: pairing a copy of “Listening Is An Act of Love” with a copy of a personally-recorded conversation (or a request for a friend or loved one to tell you about their life). This adds a meaningful touch to the holiday season, and gives that special someone incredible inspiration to share their own stories! The book and DIY tools can be linked to at

    Thanks again and best wishes for the New Year!
