How many times have you suffered because of a lack of knowledge? Later, we all end up saying if only I had known, or I didn't know at that time. We all have moments when we need help.

The United States has suffered enough because we don't share with others enough about our own experiences. We need more stories of inspiration. We need to share with others they're not alone. Let someone know you were in their shoes at one time. Teach them how you got through your situation.

I believe that we're enduring a lot of suffering because we're lacking knowledge. If we all would come together more with our own testimony of what we endured during our test we could help others by reaching out with the knowledge others may be lacking at that moment.

I truly believe it would make our world a better place.

Listeners of NPR will be familiar with StoryCorps - "StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations."

These stories of ordinary people doing ordinary things are extraordinary. If you ever doubt our humanity, this is a place to restore your faith.
