Real Talk, Real People

WASHINGTON- (WUSA9) Some of the greatest stories you will hear are from people you are sitting next to on the train, the person you bumped into while texting and walking, the person looking so serious, dazing off into space, while sitting alone at the coffee shop. 

One of the main reasons, if not the main reason, I chose journalism, is to listen and learn from other people's stories. Listening to his or her story and then giving the person an avenue to share their story with the world.

What brings people together and makes people feel less alone is the sense of relating to one another. The stories that allow people to relate to each other are what make true differences in people's lives.

President Obama also tried health care website

It sounds like President Obama himself is among those who've had trouble with HealthCare.gov.
