Humans need stories like humans need air
Short stories are important because they can be read in a short period, and can provoke a reader into thought, consideration and sometimes action -- as can all stories.
“Storytelling is a part of life, intrinsic to most cultures. They help people make sense of the world--life's experiences, dilemmas and hardships. Stories can educate, inspire and build rapport. They are a means of communicating, recreating, and helping preserve cultures by translating memories into a more concrete manner that can be handed down verbally or in written form. Telling the story can provide the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of one's experiences and oneself.” (Kirsti A. Dyer, MD, MS, FAAETS)
