A Short Animation With Deep Meaning

A short animated story from storycorps.org. At first, I was left wondering, “What’s the point?” Maybe it was because I was up late last night (Christmas eve, you know) and wasn’t quite up to full speed. I understood on the second viewing, tho, and the message not only fits the season, but the core values behind this blog.

As a sentence from the ‘About’ page at StoryCorps says: “We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, strengthen and build the connections between people, teach the value of listening, and weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that every life matters.”

Please watch and share your thoughts with us!


  1. This is a terrific animated short that allows the viewer to have a simple visual for the audio account of a brief, sad and ultimately uplifting story of addiction. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am grateful that you shared it here.
