This Animated Short Will Inspire You
A co-worker discovered StoryCorps, a website dedicated to telling stories. They operate as a non-profit, inviting Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of their lives. The featured video here tells the true story of Ronald McNair, a successful astronaut who perished in the Challenger explosion in January of 1986.
McNair's brother, Carl, went to Story Corps to remember him and pay tribute to his brother's fierce, yet humble persistence to learn, dream and succeed, even though he grew up in an America steeped in racism. The resulting cartoon is simple, touching, and just the thing to help us feel a little better about the struggles we have faced, are facing right now, and will face tomorrow.
