This I Believe

One of my favorite continuing NPR features is “This I Believe,” which is based on a 1950s radio program of the same name hosted by Edgar R. Murrow. It features ordinary Americans who, in three-minute increments, share their deeply held philosophies. The series is coming to an end after four years, which is a shame. It is one of the few places in the mainstream media where you can hear the unvarnished thoughts and genuine voices of everyday citizens about how they try to live their lives.

What do I believe? In the power of saying “thank you.”
