In preparation for Thanksgiving next week....

Awhile back in September I published a post regarding the nonprofit StoryCorps project and the book Listening is an Act of Love.

Through a recently posted comment it was brought to our attention that the project is launching a new initiative....
StoryCorps is asking the whole country to set aside one hour on Friday, November 28th, the day after Thanksgiving, to record a conversation with a friend or loved one. We're declaring this day the National Day of Listening. We just launched a website (www.nationaldayoflistening.org) with more information and tips for a Do-it-Yourself style interview as well as a video walking through an interview. Since so many Americans aren't able to make it to a StoryCorps recording booth, we're making it easier for everyone to share the feelings a personal interview with a loved one can foster.
