We invite you to explore this powerful collection of stories assembled in service of healing and positive social change.
The intention of this section is to present bite-sized and provocative stories accompanied by notes or an introduction provided by the particular teller to stimulate conversation and give context to the tale presented.
“Stories We Live”, is a place to explore the myriad uses of personal story and narrative to promote healing and conversation.
Together with a coalition of international storytellers, Laura Simms has gathered traditional tales from around the world, stories that may provide an internal place of peace for children. Stories that explore and transform feelings of powerlessness and fear into courage and inspiration are enduring. It is our hope that these cultural treasures can provide new and rich images to replace actual or televised images of violence.
This page has a list of resources for educators and parents to help students cope with and discuss tragedy fear, and grief.
