Around the world from time immemorial, children have been making the request, “tell me a story!” This is hardly surprising. After all, humans are creatures of story—we tell stories to make sense of life, to communicate about ourselves and learn about others, to illustrate values and lessons, and most of all, as a medium for truth. The power of story is the reason I love literature and love sharing literature with the students at Veritas. Story is a powerful medium for communicating important truths about leadership, character, and integrity.
