From American Student Radio, a story about the power of the little things we all hang on to. In it, Hannah Fleace, a student at Indiana University, orders a hair bow from Etsy in honor of her boyfriend Joe, who serves in the army. But the day Hannah gets the package in the mail, she discovers someone else’s bow in the box. The small mailing mix up proceeds to turn Hannah’s world upside down.
