It's the Thanksgiving Holiday in the US, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving than by featuring a video from the StoryCorps collection. Since 2003, StoryCorps has archived more than 35,000 interviews from more than 70,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded and preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to their broadcasts on their listen page and on public radio.
Many of the StoryCorps recordings have been animated. This one entitled "Always A Family" is especially moving. Directed by the Rauch Brothers, animated by Tim Rauch and art directed by Bill Wray along with several other exceptionally talented individuals involved in the production, it is indicative of the spirit behind this worthy project. I've accumulated quite a few of the StoryCorps videos here so feel free to check them out. They're very special and I'm sure you'll enjoy them.
There's much in life to be grateful for. Embrace the blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!
