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 http://www.storycorps.net.

    Thanks again and best wishes for the New Year!
    Amy
