A Stay Together Ride

Posted by on Tue, Jan 8, 2013 at 9:56 AM


NPR Snap Judgment Performance of the Year was awarded in December to 15-year-old Noah St. John for his explosively moving story about his two moms and the moment he thought he might lose the family he had always known.

That was amazing two ways: first, his story. Second, he's only fifteen he wrote and performed something that spectacular. This made my day.

Glad I had tissues handy. What a moving story. Thanks Dan.

How wonderful! And so chisel-featured and nicely coiffed at an age most of us are still oily-complected mumbly nosepickers.

Dan, don't tell me you missed the link on TowleRoad about the priest in Springfield, IL who called 911 to get him out of handcuffs.…

No doubt the bigwigs at Honda of America have already had a meeting regarding this kid, his family, and their beloved CRV.

Nice piece, though.

Spectacular! What a performer. You know, it didn't have to be a same sex couple as the parents, so very nice that it was a casual mention, not really relevant, and not the focus of the story - just a family, tension, and a car.

I love Snap Judgment and listen to the podcasts on the stationary bike, so it's nice to have the video

It takes a lot to make me cry. Tears rolling down my cheeks. Thank you.

This brought back memories! My dad drove a big blue station wagon, and we took this very same 100,000 mile ride when I was 4 or 5 years older than this boy. Drove through the park and had a cake that we'd made with 100,000 miles written in blue frosting. Thanks, Dan!

I began as an industry professional in 1975. That’s when I started working at Bekins Van Lines in the San Fernando Valley as a helper. I learned the trade from the ground up. First, as a helper, then a packer, driver and a foreman. Woodland Hills Moving Company
