Meet some people

Photobucket

I love meeting people and hearing their stories, which is why I love Journalism because I get to interview people.

Everyone has a story; it takes time to be written, but when it's written, it's beautiful.

Regardless of heartache, triumph, angst or just pure joy a person can have built into their personality through life experience, a life story can be told in such a raw way, which is exactly what Interview Project does.

Interview Project is an endearing journey put together by David Lynch, founder of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, as well as others who have traveled 20,000 miles during a 70 day period across the United States.

Lynch, who narrates the beginning of each video, says the project was done so people--you and I--can meet people.

"It's something that's human and you can't stay away from it," said Lynch.

The subjects of each video were found while the team was driving along roads, going into bars as well as other locations; some were just on their front lawn.

There are tons of stories to be heard and quite frankly, I have read a lot of blogs that are similar in premise; however, this is the best.

Check out some of the videos because I can't stress enough how tragically wonderful yet inspirational people can be in their own words.

  4. As strange as it sounds, this is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. I love hearing people's stories, but rarely get the chance to sit down for a chat with strangers.
    Lovely!
