Hi Lingchen,

I love your story about the prostrating man.

How can stories be preserved? By you preserving them! You may be interested in my project. Since childhood, I have collected stories from Eastern European refugees and immigrants. Interviewing our elders on tape is important. Writing their stories down. I see you already have offers of help on this site. Keep going!
