This collection of diverse and insightful stories from Utah residents is the result of a call for personal experiences with the theme, “Seeking Freedom and Dignity.”
Included are stories from prisoner of war, refugees, community minded citizens, those familiar with mental and physical pain, and some who have survived sexual and substance abuse to create happy and productive lives.
In sharing their stories, these men and women bravely take us into moments of conflict and triumph. They offer us nuggets of wisdom, inspire hope in the future and shine a light on our common humanity. By making the effort to write and tell their stories, they preserve the value of their personal experience for generations to come.
One World, Many Stories is the 2011 community outreach project of the Utah Chapter of the Association of Personal Historians, whose goal is to save lives, one story at a time. As this remarkable anthology demonstrates, everyone has a story to tell!
