Your story may not be “your” story…


I think a lot of us who have been working on the Your Stories project for the last few months have heard something along the lines of “I don’t have a WWII story, I wasn’t born until well after the war.” But maybe your grandfather (or great grandfather) has a story. Maybe it’s your grandmother who still cooks a certain way—and taught your mom to cook it that way—because of rationing during the War. Maybe you’ve heard these stories a million times, or maybe you haven’t, but I’ll bet if you ask a couple people in your family, you’ll find that there are stories. 

So ask your grandmother or grandfather to share their story with you, and find out something you didn’t know before you asked. You’ll be glad you did.
