About Us

Posted on: May 24th, 2011 by admin

In our polarized society, we need a starting place for rediscovering each other. I believe that we all share the essential things: love of family, courage in adversity, sustaining faith, hope for the future. The stories gathered here are drawn from real life: living stories, told from the inside out. I like to think of them as non-fictional short stories, inspirational and thought-provoking. Windows into the hearts and minds of people you may never meet — but would love to know.
