True Stories

June 25, 2008

Non-fiction. It’s the only place in which it’s ok to be awesome and do good things. Success and altruism are great in real life, dull as dishwater in fiction.

I’m glad of the fiction/ non-fiction divide. Each has things the other cannot do.

This story at the Guardian struck me today. Several times. About the face. These people are mega awesome. Opening their house to troubled teens, over a twenty-year period, and turning their lives around (mostly). They did it because it was the right thing to do.

Fantastic story, just as well its real and not fictional though, otherwise it would be boring.
