A Brother And Sister Get Married

As comedian John Fugelsang recalls, all in life was dandy until one fateful day, at age 6, he noticed an odd motif in some photos: “In every family picture … my mother was wearing a habit.”

Last August, he tweeted his parents’ unusual love story — with photos — on the first anniversary of his father’s death. In a series of blurbs 140 characters or less, he tells it better than I ever could…

I’ve been following John Fugelsang on Twitter, despite not knowing anything about him apart from his quick wit and progressive politics.  I must have missed this stream of Tweets, but NPR has thoughtfully assembled them for me  and – hopefully – you, to read.  It’s quite a beautiful look at a life well lived.
