This I Believe is a project stimulated by Edward R. Murrow in which all kinds of people – probably 100 in all – state their beliefs about life in two-page essays.

Virtually all the monographs are entertaining, and I found it inspiring to find people who seem to care, even if most of them are probably dead now.  My Dad pegged the whole topic as fluff before he read any, and of course he must be largely right when people get two pages each to describe their beliefs.  Inasmuch as this probably isn’t a readily available book, you can read what I have and judge for yourself.

First up are Murrow’s introductory notes, which are about his experiences and why he thinks the This I Believe projects are important.  He never does state what he believes.
