Danny and Annie

Heart in sand on a beachHere is a beautifully inspiring story about a twenty-seven year romance.

Danny and Annie Perasa from Brooklyn, New York, reminisce to StoryCorps about their lives together from first meeting until Danny’s final days with terminal cancer.

The YouTube video shared below is an animated movie, with their voices as the sound track. The animation is professionally done, but you may wish simply to listen rather than look at the screen.  Just listening to their voices with an open heart is a deeply powerful experience on its own!.

Danny and Annie’s story is both moving and inspiring – we think you’ll experience the same mix of tears and smiles that we did. Exactly as the poster to YouTube expressed it, their story is a testament to:

the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen.
