History seldom remembers the everyday people, and features the rich and famous instead. This is sad because often the best stories and the most interesting of lives are played out by the everyday people.
You and I and our forefathers and ancestors are the people who shaped the planet. We built the railways, nursed the sick and poured the tea for people who could only dream their dreams and see their visions of what the world might one day become. Yes, it is the everyday people who often faced the most danger and overcame or lost their lives in ways that often far more up close and personal than the sheltered few who poems are written about.
The big guys cannot do anything unless the everyday people allow them to. These are our stories.
