YOUR STORY

tell the stories that ground you, connect you, and unite you with those around you.  tell the stories that can heal you and help others.  tell the stories that dispel hatred, stereotypes, and misconceptions.  tell the stories that bring you joy and give you purpose.  tell the stories that are beautiful and full of light.  tell the stories that are dark and ugly and full of hope.  tell the stories that make use of your hands, your mind, your heart.  tell the stories that will challenge you to see yourself differently, better, stronger, happier, more courageous.  tell the stories that you are afraid to tell. tell the stories that must be told. tell the stories of your daily life.  tell the stories of the smallest, most precious moments.  tell the stories of your most life-altering experiences.  tell the stories of your memories.  tell the stories of your dreams.  tell your story, and let us connect, be changed, and better for knowing you as you are.
