“The first duty of love is to listen.” — Paul Tillich
Story Corp. began the National Day of LIstening on the day after Thanksgiving in 2008 as a non-commercial alternative to Black Friday Shopping. We all need a reminder that life is not about how many things we collect, but about the relationships we build. On this day after Thanksgiving take an hour to record an interview with a loved one. This is your opportunity to let the people close to you know their stories won’t be forgotten. You might be surprised by what you learn.

I hadn’t heard about this, what a great and inspiring idea. I’ve added it to my “World Events” Calendar. Thank you!
You are welcome. I just happened on this last year. I’m all for anything that tries to move people away from materialism and toward communication and understanding.
