StoryCorps is declaring November 28, 2008 the first annual National Day of Listening.
This holiday season, ask the people around you about their lives — it could be your grandmother, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. By listening to their stories, you will be telling them that they matter and they won’t ever be forgotten. It may be the most meaningful time you spend this year.
Unforunately, the most listening people will be doing today will be to either the mall traffic report or the store announcer saying the location of the next blue light special. Damn materialistic bastards.
