Well today is Sunday and one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday is check out the latest posting on Post Secret. I've been checking out their site/blog for a few years now and I never get tired of it. Every week is as different and fascinating as the people who send in their post cards.
The point of Post Secret is to allow people to expose their deepest darkest secrets and realize that we are all human beings and nobody is alone in their personal struggles. Sometimes the secrets are sad, sometimes they're a little naughty, you never know what will be there when you check in each Sunday. This entire project was inspired by one man's dream and has now become many people's saving grace.
Post Secret has grown like crazy over the years. There is now a community set up online where people can go to discuss their problems and express their feelings. There are even books for sale that are a collaboration of different cards sent in. The man behind the project, Frank, now does events where he shares the cards. There has even been a burst of people creating cards and leaving them in the books at the stores where they are sold to be found by perfect strangers.
Frank's project has helped many people move past obstacles that plagued their minds and their lives. His project supports helping others and promotes the use of National Hopeline Network for those in needs. It just goes to show that one man can make a difference.
