“Storytelling is at its best when it topples ignorance and opens us to others, but these days it is difficult to tell such tales. The media mirror reflects mostly celebrity and power.  That’s why I cherish the Christopher Award for my book: American Story, a Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things. The honor recognizes the importance of seeking the stories of people who are ruled by courage and love, who endure no matter what the challenge and reshape our world for the better.  They may feel they are not particularly important, the Christopher Award tells them the very opposite.”

- Bob Dotson, National Correspondent, NBC Today Show
