Every year as those of us in the USA swear we will never eat another bit again, having devoured as much food as we could the day before, StoryCorps, made famous for most of us by National Public Radio, celebrates the National Day of Listening. The National Day of Listening is "a day to honor a loved one through listening." So as we recover from Thanksgiving festivities and prepare ourselves for the parade of winter holidays lets listen as StoryCorps says, "It's the least expensive but most meaningful gift you can give this holiday season. You can choose to record a story with anyone you know." This year StoryCorps National Day of Listening featured stories of veterans, active duty military, and their families, to listen visit http://nationaldayoflistening.org/.
If you would like more information about donating a story to the South Dakota Oral History Center or if you need help recording a story, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 605.677.6386.
Thank you for your continued interest in the South Dakota Oral History Center and happy holidays!
