This blog explores ways we are doing just that, one post, one change, one day at a time. Join me. Tell your stories. Ask for help. Spread your ideas for making the vision real and, well, ordinary.

Ordinary Heroes

They are everywhere. In corporate high-rises and in remote villages miles from cell phone towers. They're sitting next to you on the bus. They're building schools in Africa. They're pounding the marble halls of Congress, seeking protection for our children, our health, our food, water, air and planet.

They save heirloom seeds, plant organic gardens, teach the rest of us how to adopt sustainable lifestyles in our throw-away, buy-more culture. They save the forests, rivers and oceans without which we cannot survive.
Their work brings the vision of the Village of Ordinary a little closer to reality every day. They show us how wonderfully possible it is to live in a world much like the Village right now. They are our Ordinary Heroes. If you are reading this, very likely, you are among them. I tell their stories, your stories, on this blog frequently, because it is people like them, people like you, who are building Ordinary.

Who are the heroes honored so far? This first batch is from the Realizing Ordinary blog. These are the latest on Building Ordinary.
We make peace in a million small ways every day.
