7. Everyone Around You has a Story the World Needs To Hear
Wow! Dave has amazing passion for his idea, and his experience of it leads him to conclude, "Every life, every single life, matters - equally and infinitely."
His talk includes an amazing thought for how teachers might engage with this as well.
Highly recommend you give this some air time in your life.
Dave Isay opened the first StoryCorps booth in New York’s Grand Central Terminal in 2003 with the intention of creating a quiet place where a person could honor someone who mattered to them by listening to their story. Since then, StoryCorps has evolved into the single largest collection of human voices ever recorded. His TED Prize wish: to grow this digital archive of the collective wisdom of humanity. Hear his vision to take StoryCorps global — and how you can be a part of it by interviewing someone with the StoryCorps app.
