Today I’m posting an audio story that I heard on a Web site called “The Moth”, a storytelling Web site. (“Storytelling” is a commonly heard buzzword in marketing these days, and someone recommended this site to me at a conference.)
I first listened to this story several months ago, and it has come back to haunt me many times since. I’ve been thinking about it a lot in the past week, since Proposition 8 was passed in California. The story is well-written and well-delivered by its author, Jeffery Rudell, and it would be enjoyable to listen to if it weren’t so heart-breaking. It makes me want to hug my children and promise them that I will love them no matter what.
It’s about 10 minutes long, but I encourage you to listen to it, because it is so moving. I can’t figure out how to link directly to the recording, so I’m linking to the main page of the site. Click on Jeffery Rudell, “Under the Influence.”
Let me know if you find it as moving as I did.
