What values do stories have that matter to our society?
I recently read an article about the importance of storytelling and I thought it was the most interesting thing because he related the act of telling stories to so many situations in everyday life. For example, if you are going to warn someone about something, they are more likely to listen to you if you tell them by using a story.
The author also introduced the idea that humans want to be apart of a shared story. In the end, everyone wants to be remembered. No one wants to die without a story. This definitely relates to what the author was saying because humans want to be apart of any story, as long as they aren’t forgotten in the end.
