Let me tell you a story
of a day when across the globe
in tiny villages and on city streets
in cafes and clubs and schools and even
in living rooms, auditoriums and theaters
the stories are told,one by one,
voice by voice, language by language,
age by age, one to another,
funny and sad, thoughtful and dire,
courageous and hilarious,
myth, legend, folktale, historic and true.
Stories surround and sweep us forward
reminding us of who we were, where we came from,
where we are now, and light the way ahead.
On this day, join the journey: find a friend and tell a story.
