It's a great week for telling stories

Posted Nov 25 2008 12:00am

42-19523803 StoryCorps is having a "National Day of Listening" this Friday where we're encouraged to talk to older relatives and friends and hear their stories. I love the idea and want to do my part to encourage your participation and make it a more meaningful day for you and your family.

So I encourage you to take advantage of the "National Day of Listening" this Friday and record, if only in your mind, your family's stories.

National Public Radio is also promoting the day and sharing stories from news personalities and their families. This morning's story came from Steve Inskeep and how his grandmother, the second in a family of 12, wanted to be a writer and English teacher and instead saw some of her dream come true through her daughter. You can hear that story here--it's a good listen and may give you some ideas about what to ask your older family members, too.
