We learn about others.  We meet people we might not have ordinarily met in our daily lives.  We celebrate our humanness  and commonalities.  We respect and listen to one another.   We identify lessons learnt and insights gained into life experiences.  We develop and grow.  We show how our narrative illustrates truths about ourselves.
