One of my favorite websites is PostSecret by Frank Warren. My son even took me to see Frank speak in person when he came to his university and I found it very interesting. Basically, Frank's project is to have people send him their secrets on postcards and then he posts a select few on the web, or in books. The goal is very basic, it gives people a way to share their secrets anonymously. In some small way this probably gives the confessor a bit of peace, and gives those of us who are reading them a bit of insight into the psyche of the human race. Quite often I have read secrets that relate to things that I have felt or have been secrets of people I have known.
