Today, 29 July, is the birthday of acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Ken Burns.  He’s made quite a name for himself telling through photos, artifacts, letters, and interviews the foundational stories of our nation:  the Civil War, baseball, jazz, and our national parks system.

How would you tell your story?  What are your archives?  Who is your lineage? 

Advocacy lesson #5: the power of the personal story.  Part of  my personal story is a lineage of strong women; women who broke stereotype; who were teachers, farmers, makers of houses into homes.  I carry that with me. When I tell my story, theirs weaves in mine, I carry them with me.

 What do you carry? What’s your story?  Tell it well.
