A StoryCorps Moment

My name is Mary-LUE and I am a StoryCorps addict.

I was going for a fix today and heard Frankie DeVito's interview with his mother.

I don't even know what to say.  This 10 year old's story, remembering his grandfather, made me cry but I was also so impressed with this boy's eloquence when his mother asks him how the loss has changed him.

Go listen.  It is on the right hand side of the page and is the featured story.

Warning:  This interview is part of StoryCorps September 11th initiative.

Is it very sad? Very very sad? Because
I can't risk opening the floodgates of tears. I might never stem the flood. EVER. AGAIN.

Well, it is very sad to hear and it is very, very for the boy.

I didn't cry that much, for that long... but I keep thinking about the little man.
