About thee weeks ago I observed a local television broadcast during the evening news about StoryCorps and how they were recording the stories of citizens in Middle Georgia. I immediately called the Toll Free number and made an appointment to tell my story. I committed to the 10:30 A.M. Time on Monday, February 28th, 2011.
The story was told and the audio recording was made. After I was presented with a CD containing my story the Staff of the StoryCorps took my picture for record purposes.
My story was recorded and a copy will go to the "American Folklife Center" at the Library of Congress. There is also a chance that my story will be broadcast on National Public Radio. I now am a StoryCorps Alumni and my story will become a very small part of the over thirty-five thousand stories that have been archived in the Library of Congress. The picture above is very much like the one the Staff of StoryCorps took on Monday Morning.
I am happy that I participated in this event. I am also able to make copies of my CD to share with my Family and Friends.
