The Great Thanksgiving Listen

Download the StoryCorps app to your phone from Apple or Google Play and record your elders at Thanksgiving. Here are some great questions to start them talking:

  • Who has been the most important person in your life? Can you tell me about him or her
  • What was the happiest moment of your life? The saddest?
  • What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
  • Are there any funny stories your family tells about you that come to mind?
  • Are there any funny stories or memories or characters from your life that you want to tell me about?
