Stories to touch your heart
Stories are wondrous things. They touch our hearts, point us in new directions and give us courage. Through them, we can learn from others' experience.
Here some stories of people who have touched my life, stories I have been collecting over the years, some of which have been published in print or presented at conferences, but are not yet widely available on the web.
When you have read these stories reflect on the words of the Canadian novelist of Cherokee and Greek descent, Thomas King, in his book The Truth About Stories: A Native Narrative:
"Don’t say in years to come that you would have lived your life differently if only you had heard this story. You have heard it now. Do with it what you will."
