Sophomores Share What They Believe

Yesterday afternoon, members of the Class of 2021 gathered together in Wickenden Chapel to listen to thirteen of their sophomore peers share personal beliefs on topics ranging from rescue dogs to the need for gratitude. Tabor’s annual “This I Believe” project is based on a 1950’s radio program, hosted by journalist and radio personality Edward R. Murrow, that invited Americans to gather around their radios to listen to the personal philosophies of the famous, such as Eleanor Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Jackie Robinson, as well as not-so-famous teachers, scientists, construction workers, and cab drivers.
 
In 2004, the “This I Believe” program was brought back to National Public Radio. As executive producer Dan Gediman explains, “The goal is not to persuade Americans to agree on the same beliefs. Rather, the hope is to encourage people to begin the much more difficult task of developing respect for beliefs different from their own.”
 
This year’s presenters, selected by vote of their classmates, were as follows: Daniel Chen; Charlie Crowley; Felix Cutler; Alex Giannaros; Menasha Leport; Griffith Long; Logan Lowder; Kari Marvel; Zoë Mermin; Poom Siripakorn; Kiley Smith; Rex Ward; and Hannah Watt.
