Community members, teachers, and students of all ages: I invite you to write an essay called “This I Believe” for the public to read and hear, in a tradition that began as a radio program in the 1950s hosted by journalist Edward R. Murrow and has continued through the decades.
Each essay should be 500-600 words, and I will post all essays I receive here on my blog. In the “This I Believe” tradition, each essay needs to be accompanied by a photo of the author as well as a recording of the author reading their essay in a quiet, appropriate setting. To record yourself, simply go to online-voice-recorder.com, record yourself reading your essay, and save it. Email your text, photo, and audio file to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you don’t have access to a computer, I’m happy to photograph and record you.

It will be an honor to read and hear what you believe.
