The value of family stories

Bruce Feiler has an interesting piece in the NYTimes in which he describes the power of family narrative. His work mirrors much that has been written about in digital storytelling. I particularly appreciated this comment:

if you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family’s positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come.
