We All Need Mending

Listen to this beautiful essay, We All Need Mending by Susan Cooke Kittredge.

Do you have a story that can touch someone's life the way Kittredge's does?

Some of you may remember how your parents or grandparents gathered at their radios to hear essays by Helen Keller, Harry Truman, and others. Now you have an opportunity to share the essence of your day-to-day philosophy and shaping of your beliefs. In 300-500 words touch our lives. See guidelines here.
Payment is $200.

Jay Allison and Dan Gediman united in hopes that in sharing one's story, others will come to respect a view different than their own. They've done a fantastic job. Explore their website and feel something. This I Believe is based on the 1950s radio program of the same name, hosted by acclaimed journalist Edward R. Murrow.
