This I Believe

September 12, 2008

The essays that NPR has compile for “This I Believe” are amazing and should be archived forever in the Library of Congress along with other great works of American art. They cut through the crap and into the heart of the struggles, joys and daily life of what it really is to be an American here and now. When historians are reading about us 10 million years from now these stories are what is really going help them understand what and how we interacted with the world called Earth. Anyway, I think everyone should read one of these story/essays to understand what I am talking about. Try this one that is written about the power of being there especially in a time like after Hurricane Katrina.
