"In listening to the story of one, we learn about the condition of many. When we pay close attention, we learn that all stories are collective accounts of how forces including culture, history at large, have shaped our understanding of life" (Bernal et al 368)
Welcome to OurStoriesIWE.com
In contemplating how many people exist in the world and the lives they have lived, it is overwhelming to consider the wealth of truth that is held within the framework of our collective experiences. The concept of this web page is to create an ongoing conversation open to the discussion of race, ethnicity, religion, white privilege, and our struggle to connect with one another in a world where we are often largely isolated from the cultural experiences outside of our own.
"Liberation is the practice of love …It’s about that force that connects us all to one another as living beings,
that force that is defined differently by every spiritual belief system, but which binds us by the vision that there can be a better world and we can help create it."-Bobbi Harro
~May every post emulate compassion and respect for all people~
Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth, bear all thinks, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (Bible)

Thank you for your interest in OurStories.
This is a space where in relationship we move together through the difficulties we might have in telling Our Stories.This full rending of vulnerability sets us free from hiding our truths and invites others to disarm themselves in the presence of our willingness to risk being naked with our stories. We are looking for other Dreamers who may have a story, a poem, art work, or perhaps links they would like to submit for collaboration with the work that is being curated for our website. Feel free to drop us note... we would love to hear from you!
