Danny and Annie by StoryCorps

If you have to make time to watch and listen to one thing  today, please make time for this.

Danny and Annie is a heartwarming story recorded by StoryCorps, an organisation whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of their lives. They've collected and archived more than 30,000 interviews from more than 60,000 participants since 2003.

This animated version of an interview with Danny and Annie is so lovely and if it doesn't move you to tears, your heart is made of stone. I promise this isn't fluffy stuff. This is how I want to love and be loved.

Danny Perasa and his wife, Annie, came to StoryCorps to recount their twenty-seven-year romance. As they remember their life together from their first date to Danny’s final days with terminal cancer, these remarkable Brooklynites personify the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen.
