We Need Stories

Posted on 23 May 2016

~ We need stories that speak truth to power, and speak truth to the masses.

~ We need stories that show how things were, how they are, how they might be, and how they can be.

~ We need stories that bind people together, that help us to cooperate for the common good.

~ We need a diversity of stories to represent the diversity of human being, so that we look beyond our differences and learn to care more broadly.

~ We need stories that help us to understand ourselves better.

~ We need stories that reconnect us with our feelings and our humanity.

~ We need stories that move us to care, and inspire us to action.

~ We need stories that bring us joy, and help to give us strength and resilience.

~ We need good solid stories, where storytellers have dug deep within themselves to represent what is truest and most life-affirming.

We need stories!
