Today is TED Day - Dave Isay

On Fridays I will post a TED talk that I find supports my claims that the story is enough: enough to teach truth and create connection.

"Dave Isay: Everyone around you has a story the world needs to hear"

Dave Isay is the founder of StoryCorps.

I first found StoryCorps on NPR.  It is an oral history project - but it is one of the largest ever.  Recorded conversations - casual interviews - are preserved and shared.  Because "everyone around [us] had a story the world needs to hear".  Because talking and sharing our stories is how we learn about each other - that our lives are not meant to be lived in "quiet desperation".  

The story is enough to help us discover how similar we are.  We discern collective truths.  We find we are not very different when it comes to the heart.
