On today's podcast episode of The Apple Seed we have stories all about friendship and integrity. Learning how to be a good friend is something that we learn all through our lives, and it takes a lot. It takes courage to stand up for our friends and integrity to be kind in our conversations about them. Today's stories teach us all about how to be a kind, courteous, and integrity filled friend to those around us. We are thrilled to share these stories with you and your family on this episode of The Apple Seed. (2:05) "The Three Ninjas" by Motoko: In this story, Motoko shares an experience her son had while dressing up for Halloween with his friends. The three of them had decided to dress as ninjas, embracing Motoko's family heritage from Japan. What the three kids didn't know was how their ninja skills would be put to the test on Halloween night. This story is full of friendship, courage, and integrity--things that can never be replaced. (28:45) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: In this segment, Sam shares a memory with us about his days in middle school. At this point in most of our lives, we experience gossip, selfishness, and bullying more than ever before. It can be hard to handle these tough situations--especially when your friends are the ones encouraging it. Sam learned the hard way that it is best not to participate in such mean games. The lesson he learned from those experiences back then is what makes up today's entry in the Radio Family Journal. (36:06) "The Speckled Band": A Sherlock Holmes Story: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's series "Sherlock Holmes" is one of the most well-known series of stories in the world. In the mid-1900s, the story of Sherlock Holmes in "The Speckled Band" was adapted into a radio drama that aired in radios all across the country in the homes of families. We are thrilled to bring this old time radio drama with you now on this episode of The Apple Seed. We hope you enjoy listening to Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as they take on the roles of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in this old time radio performance of "The Speckled Band. *Illustration by Sònia Albert, © Sònia Albert
