“The Road Home” by StoryCorps

| May 11, 2014

TheRoadHomeStoryCorps presents The Road Home, a contemporary re-telling of the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Eddie Lanier, son of a previous Chapel Hill mayor Edwin S. Lanier, struggled with alcoholism for over 40 years, until his 28th stint in rehab finally led to sobriety. Homeless and hungry, Eddie roamed the streets of his native Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and found a friend in David Wright, a passerby whose frequent donations stood out. Here, the two friends discuss Eddie’s remarkable journey.

The “Road Home is part of StoryCorps’ first-ever half-hour animated special, Listening Is an Act of Love.
