Every one of the experiences in our lives is a narrative. I learned that early on as a student intern for the Washington Post. I'm told I have a good sense of humor and I like having fun and telling the truth, while I attempt to find truths as best as possible because everything in life is based on fact finding. If you don't have the correct information, you may not report it. Once you are able to verify it, you can then move on it.
If you do not start by telling the truth about yourself, you are not going to be able to tell it about others. Many journalists and content producers must learn to be truth story tellers and to appreciate the facts that are revealed before us. And the fact is, sometime we learn things; call it truths and circumstances that are beyond our control and we do not necessarily appreciate, but we must learn to live with it as best as possible and move on.
Death is usually followed by life. Many people think they have all the time in the world, so they wait and wait, but I have never understood this concept. Everyone should try to have as much fun throughout their lives. But in the end, no matter what we do, we're all going to have die.
