I wonderful proposal. Such simple action would have powerful repercussions.
I am part of a movement in Australia which is called RUOK?Day on September 15 people are asked to reach out to someone they are concerned about and ask "Are you OK?" Last year over 2 million Australians had RUOK? conversations.
Our tag line is "a conversation could change a life" and I believe that to be true for both the "asker" and the "askee".
"Tell me your story" covers many other scenarios and I will add it to my inventory of enquiry.
