Threads celebrates world wide diversity and hopes to inspire human connection through all of our true stories. We began the year in St. Louis, MO holding live events at local venues and have transitioned into a podcast where people everywhere can submit their written stories online at: to be brought to audible life. Our mission is still the same - Unity. Our stories are the threads that bind us. "It is nearly impossible to hate anyone whose story you know." A. Solomon


  • Carol's Inspiration Part 3

    02/09/2016 Duração: 11min

    Last part of the “Coming to America” story by Carlos Fillies. This is the story of an immigrant who didn’t allow anything to stand in his way. These 3 episodes are the #1 inspiration for this podcast. Everyone has a story and we all deserve to be heard. Be moved. Be inspired. And this was not the end of their story, just another chapter in the story they're still making. Special thanks to Julianna Jackson for recording this story around the kitchen table in Peru where Carlos and his wife Maruja now reside again. St. Louisan’s will find a lot of the places in this story familiar. Enjoy!
