Why we chose this book
We all have a story to tell, that's what makes us human and our world tick. A story is a way to express ourselves; to laugh at, to cry at, to learn from and take reassurance from. It's what makes us true and unique, it's the foundation of who we are. Some stories are easy to tell, you know the sort that that cause you roll around laughing, with your sides aching so much they hurt and tears are streaming down your face. Others are more personal and take courage. This book resonated with us, and the personal journeys we have been on. No person's story is the same as the next. As humans we are curious creatures, we have a thirst for learning and for knowledge, we also like the reassurance that we are not alone in our own situations and take comfort that others have trodden a similar path Imagine the power a story could have - your story could have. It has the possibility to change a person's life.
