Story core idea needs social network help

What is your idea? The idea is to use digital recording in a neutral comfortable setting to capture the oral traditions and anecdotal information of our seniors. The immediate past is rife with hard-scrabble living, social change, and personal stories of courage and determination. The current and future generations need to hear these stories in order to be grounded in their ancestor's history and to have the courage and determination to take bold steps.

What will be the impact of your idea? - Capturing historic information while also capturing the emotions that wrap those memories from angst to euphoria; all to give present and future generations hope and inspiration. To backstop the next generation as hard choices are made and change is shaped in ways that are fair to all concerned.
