Serial. You hear the score and you know another piece of this emotional story is about to begin.
The world became immersed in Sarah's investigative journalism into what key players remember from the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee and the consequent arrest and conviction of her former boyfriend, Adnan Syed.
Serial intrigued me.
This investigation was not fiction, the details of the case effected (and continued to effect) a group of lives which were changed drastically in 1999 and were urged to ask and recall difficult recounts from 15 years ago.
Prior to Serial, there was NPR's StoryCorps, TED talks and This American Life. All of these had one thing in common: the people and their stories.
The stories are full of emotion: happiness, sadness, confusion, excitement! I mean, ALL of the FEELS!
I've heard stories of forgiveness, confrontation and love. All of these stories made me want to grab a microphone and stand down on Lincoln Road and just hear stories. Stories of hope, fear, triumph and just LIFE in general!!
Except for that One Thing!
As I was listening to 518: Except for That One Thing today I started thinking about my stories and how I can share them with you guys. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to share a story and how perfect it was ...except for that one thing!
It'll be fun, I promise!!
I'm excited and have at least three stories already going in my head!!
Please feel free to share your stories in the comments below. I'm looking forward to sharing a little more and getting a chance to get to know you guys as well :)
