Best Day of My Life So Far

Inspired by her grandmother’s friendship, which began with a single phone call, Benita Cooper asked Philadelphia Senior Center to borrow a small table for an hour a week. Every Thursday during her lunch break, she showed up with pen, paper and an open heart. Older neighbors told her stories that contained their deepest hopes, dreams and fears; younger neighbors showed up to listen along. Afterwards, Benita shared the stories and her reflections on a blog to invite younger people near and far to join the conversation. Originally intended to last six weeks, the group quickly became a tightknit family, and continues meeting to this day, bringing together hundreds of participants and volunteers, and counting.
