Whether you are a Valentine’s Day junkie or a cynical boycotter of the holiday, you cannot deny the heart-warming feelings that the StoryCorps shorts stir in viewers. Curl up with a loved one or a pint of your favorite ice cream this Valentine’s Day and check out the newest StoryCorps animated short, as well as an old favorite from 2009.

To R.P. Salazar, with Love
In January 2007, Rachel P. Salazar and Ruben P. Salazar were living 9,000 miles apart and completely unaware of each other’s existence. But when an email meant for Rachel accidentally went to Ruben, it wasn’t long before an ordinary mistake began to look like an extraordinary stroke of luck.

Danny and Annie: Parts I & II
In Part One, Brooklyn natives Danny and Annie Perasa reminisce about their 27-year love affair. Though he may not look the part, when Danny talks about his love for Annie, it’s obvious that he is one of the world’s great romantics. In Part Two, after nearly three decades of marriage, fatal illness dashed Danny and Annie’s hopes for a long life together. In an intimate and heartbreaking glimpse into a marriage, this animated short witnesses true love as it braves the finality of loss.
