Love is all there is . . . [sic.] When you take your last breath you remember the people you love, how much love you inspired, and how much love you gave.
- Lillie Love, Story Corps Facilitator
In memory of Lillie Mae Love 1957-2010
StoryCorps launched in October 2003, when we opened our first booth in Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
It is a very simple idea. You make an appointment to bring in anyone you want to honor by listening. . . . We hope that recording a StoryCorps interview reminds participants how much their lives matter and that experiencing these stories illustrates the power, strength, and wisdom we can find in the voices of the people all around us when we take the time to listen.
In the coming years we hope StoryCorps will touch the lives of every American family.
The founder of StoryCorps, a national project that records, shares, and preserves the lives of Americans from all backgrounds, presents individuals' love stories from early dating to finding connections and lifelong commitment.
