Stories are important.  They connect us.  They teach us.  They inspire us.  Stories help us understand our place in the world.  They help us understand other people, cultures, places, and times.  Stories can clarify events and emotions.  Some stories may be cathartic for the teller, and enlightening for the reader.  Sharing stories can help ourselves and inform others.   


Click the links below to be connected with such stories.

In the future, we hope to add more buttons to this page, because everyone likes a good story and everyone has a story to tell.  If you have a story to share, please let us know by clicking here and sending us a message: 

Sharing Our Stories is made possible in part by a grant made in partnership with Indiana Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
