CHICAGO VOICES: An excerpt from “Chicago Visions,” by Eugene Burger

I think stories are important for humans generally, because that’s how we tell who we are, where we came from, and how this all happened. So almost every society has a myth of origin, or multiple myths of origin, to explain how the things that are taken for granted came to be. Without stories, we would have no self-definition, I think, and we would probably go crazy.
