If you haven't heard it before, This I Believe is a fascinating NPR Project.
Here's a summary taken from the This I Believe website:
This I Believe is a national media project engaging people in writing, sharing, and discussing the core values and beliefs that guide their daily lives. NPR airs these three-minute essays on All Things Considered and Weekend Edition Sunday.
Anyone can submit an essay on anything they *believe* in. They just need to be 300-500 words.
Here's mine from their website. (I believe in passion...) It tells the backstory to my life and I wrote it as this August is my ten year anniversary of quitting my job, moving from the city, and starting a new life that focused on writing, family, simplicity, nature, and lollygagging.
