Faded Leaves: The Musings of a slightly crazy lady

What’s your story? March 20, 2013

Today is world storytelling day. Hearing this reminds me of how back in the olden days history was mainly passed down through storytelling. Tales of heroes and villains, wars, triumphs, and losses all passed through each generation through a storyteller. Children gathered round to hear. Adults reminisced about hearing the same stories as children. It was a magical time.

We dont have many storytellers today. The older generation has been put away in nursing homes and forgotten about. Its rare that anyone will take time from their schedule to talk to that generation and hear the stories of the past. OUR past. How sad that we have forgotten one of the most wonderful aspects of our history as Americans.

So today, or sometime this week, ask your grandma, your grandpa, or an older relative to tell you a story about the past. And even if you’ve heard it before sit and listen so one day you can pass on that bit of history to your grandchildren.

Until Next Time,
