I spend my days with people who are not happy in their marriage. Perhaps this is why it is so refreshing when I find a couple thrilled to be together. We all need role models. Some of us never had a role model; perhaps there was no happy marriage to see growing up.
Well, this morning, I was tuned into NPR‘s Morning Edition. I always look forward to their report on Story Corps. If you are not familiar, this is a program that started in New York City. People could enter into a soundproof room, and either tell their story or interview someone else to hear their story. These stories are an oral history, and are being collected by the Library of Congress.
One couple that entered that booth has become the “poster children” for the program. Danny and Annie Perasa are that couple. They embody the program’s storytelling, but also embody a loving relationship. If you did not catch the story, treat yourself by reading and listening by clicking here.
Danny is dying from cancer, but their love is clearly undying.
