'Mom, I'll Be By At Ten'

Dani Hayes
Utah Public Radio

While recording for One Small Step this summer, we found that crossing the divide between two strangers often began with the small step of sharing a personal story. Thirty years ago, Clare Coonan had something to tell her parents, and said she would be by at ten. 

This story was recorded in Riverton, Utah.
