I’ve just been told that my essay on the “This I Believe” website is the second most popular among webviewers. That’s 2nd out of NPR’s entire database of 20,000 entries! It has been viewed more than 5,870 times in the last month alone.
In addition, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel will publish my essay in the next couple of weeks, possibly on December 24. The essay will be featured along with “This I Believe” essays from other Wisconsin writers.
“This I Believe” is a national media project engaging millions of people in writing, sharing, and discussing the core values and beliefs that guide their daily lives. NPR has aired these three-minute essays on its news programs Morning Edition and All Things Considered since April 2005.
Thanks to all who viewed the essay! It is my hope that writing about my experiences will bring comfort and inspiration to others.
