Getting to know the world through personal stories

After seeing a news story last night about a man who is going through nursing homes and taking pictures of person who are 100 years old and older and asking their stories and sharing them to accumulate over 10,000 years of world history. I thought it would be a great ending report for a class seeing as we were given a project to do dealing with social media and the ways to help the world get to know each other. On my Facebook I have over 4,000 friends and yet even though I see their status updates and the pictures they share .. I really do not know a lot about them personally. So I have set out on my quest to find out more about them all. I am sure it may be a bit intrusive or rude for some. But I feel as part of this world we sometimes forget that each person we meet has their own story. So instead of judging people I feel it is our right to get to know them. So hopefully as the last project of this class I am able to complete this and learn more about the people who I share my life with on a daily basis.

Since 1993, those of us here at ESPN fortunate enough to work with Stuart saw how he lived. And in the past seven years as he fought cancer, we saw why he lived. For his daughters…
