(If you can't hear the live show: After its start time, refresh your browser, click host name (above) or audio player arrow (at right), or scroll down to click episode title.) Nora Firestone, Hampton Roads-based journalist and founder of ThankingOfYou.com, will discuss the effects of gratitude and similar virtues on the every-day human experience. Firestone will share stories and conduct interviews designed to illuminate and affirm that indeed, "No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted" (Aesop)and that gratitude, by nature, is a perpetual, giving and fruitful force. Gratitude is a force that often drives its recipients to create and achieve great things despite the odds, the history and the nay-sayers. The expression of gratitude, even decades after an act, affirms life and life-purpose. Such are the words that never appeared at the bottom of our teachers' paychecks; may never have reached the boss until his retirement; might be the lift someone in your life needs today. This is the stuff of real legacies. Share your stories with us on air, and log on to www.ThankingOfYou.com to thank those who've made a lasting, positive difference in your life.
