One of the wonderful things about a place like the Interpretive Center is when our visitors find an emotional connection to our programs or exhibits and share it with others around them.
In Linda Russell's living history program yesterday, an older gentleman in the audience was so moved as to shout out “Momma!” during the middle of the show.
At the end of the performance, the visitor explained in a voice filled with emotion that his mom sang like a bird, and Linda had just brought her back to life. His confession moved many others in the audience to respond in a similar manner, and everyone present was very touched by this brief experience.
We’re sharing this story to remind ourselves of how special those moments of connection between the past and present are, and how they can turn up in the most unexpected of places.
