Nicole - On Rhode Island Public Radio!
Nicole Purcell, writer of Curious Girl and one of my first in-person blogging connections from back in the day, is being featured on Rhode Island Public Radio tomorrow, December 23rd. You can catch it on NPR at 102.7 FM, Southern RI 1290 AM, Providence, at 6:35 am, 8:35 am, and 5:45 pm, or streaming on the website at www.wrni.org.
From the website:
"Modeled on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow, This I Believe – Rhode Island, hosted by Frederic Reamer, is an effort to share the many stories of people of Rhode Island... the personal experiences that have helped form the opinions of your neighbors. This I Believe – Rhode Island is also an opportunity for you to share your own beliefs and experiences. The people, places and things that have shaped your views of the world."
To listen to the beautiful essay that Nicole wrote about her life with type 1 diabetes, and to hear her perform it in her own voice, you can download the audio file by clicking here.
Nicole, this is a beautiful essay, and your words are so powerful. Thank you for sharing them, and yourself, with all of us.
