Collection: The Human Connection

The power of the human connection can turn small acts of kindness, courage, or friendship into life-changing events. This audio story collection explores the potential effects of seemingly simple human interactions on others, illustrating that these exchanges are not really simple at all, but rather they can ripple through people’s lives in ways that may have lasting impact. Together, the stories in this collection demonstrate that people are linked by their need to make meaning in their lives through relationships with others. Across many different contexts, the intersection of individual lives can significantly influence their trajectories.
