Guideposts magazine released a list of their 10 most inspirational stories of 2010 -- and they included in it their article about Ann Curry!
Edward Grinnan, a Guideposts magazine editor, wrote that the stories that made the list were ones that changed the editors' perspective on the world.
"An inspirational story moves us in a way other stories don’t; they make us feel more than think, perhaps, and touch us deep in a place most experiences never reach. They can send a shiver down our spines and a ripple through our souls," he wrote. "A great inspirational story never leaves us feeling the same."
In the article about her, Ann explains why she endures the emotional toll of leaving her family to report of stories of human suffering like Hurricane Katrina and the Southeast Asian tsunami: because she believes that it is her job as a journalist to make people care about the world and its future. She calls it an act of faith.
