“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.  For more information on the National Day of Listening including a Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide visit:  http://www.nationaldayoflistening.org/
