"This I Believe" from National Public Radio
These provocative questions are the kernel of an invitation issued by NPR (National Public Radio) and forwarded to me by a Geranium Farmer from Oklahoma. If your public radio station, part of the NPR network, is the first station you turn to when listening to the radio you may already be aware of the This I Believe project. NPR has requested that each of its interested listeners to write a 350 to 500 word essay summarizing what they believe.

Even if you never submit your essay, it may be a worthwhile endeavor to reflect on what you believe and why your believe it. If you do the exercise, the essay you produce will be the kind of document you may wish to put among your important papers or pass on to a loved one for posterity.
Who knows? Your essay may be broadcast far and wide or end up in the audio compilation NPR creates from the most popular submissions!
