Welcome to Uncorking a Story
In a world that shouts the bad news while whispering the good, Uncorking a Story seeks to be a lighthouse for spreading inspirational stories shared by people who are making a difference in the world.
Most of what you hear on talk radio programs or see on TV as far as opinions and current events go is designed to instill some kind of fear into the listener. “This politician will ruin the country…” “This corporation represents everything that is evil in this world…” “If you eat any more of this, you will die yesterday!” I am tired of all the negativity that is shouted at us. Aren’t you?
Social Media Bears Some Responsibility
As wonderful and as powerful as social media can be, it is all too easy for people to anonymously spread the disease of negativity (and falsehoods) to friends, family, colleagues, and, of course, strangers. What’s worse, many of them do so with good intentions. The fact is, anonymity and a share button can, at times, be a dangerous combination.
A Light at the End of the Tunnel
Uncorking a Story is a platform designed to share inspirational and heartfelt stories to counteract all the negativity that is thrown at us on a daily basis. Here you will find written stories of people helping others and sharing their gifts and talents in a positive manner. You will also listen to podcasts with people who are making a difference in the world today. Combined, we hope to drown out some of the negativity polluting our newspapers, blogs, and airways.
