365 Days of Happy - Day 93

If you don't know about StoryCorps yet, you should definitely explore their website. Their mission is to  'provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of their lives.'

Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 45,000 interviews with nearly 90,000 participants. They provide a different form of communication and story telling.

This is the first StoryCorps video I saw, a couple of years ago it was, and I instantly fell in love with StoryCorp's mission.

Danny & Annie

Brooklynites Danny, and OTB clerk, and Annie, a nurse, remember their life together - from their first date to Danny's final days with terminal cancer. This remarkable couple personifies the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of every day people if we take the time to listen. Originally an animation in two parts, here you'll see a special version that combines both parts of their story.
