What Do You Believe?

For our last assignment,
we'll be writing a short essay about our personal credos based on a program developed by NPR, This I Believe. On the show, ordinary folks from across the country read aloud a personal statement about one of their beliefs. Here are links to the radio essays we'll be using in class:

Be Cool To The Pizza Dude, by Sarah Adams

A Grown Up Barbie, by Jane Hamill

Two years ago, a Craft of Language student from SJU was published on the site. Check out Brandon Gergel's essay, "I Dance to Techno."
