Every Day Hero’s

26 Jun

Jeff Pulver recently created “The EveryDay Heros” Project. Below is an excerpt from his blog post.

My belief is that everyone has a story.

Some of them are amazing people with amazing stories. Some people have overcome some great odds before the point where they got to be standing there to speak with you. Some of these people have taken on major challenges and overcame them. Some of these people inspire others. Some are people who challenge the status quo, who make a difference.

Every one has a story to tell. But you need to be there to listen to it. One cool aspect is that once you hear these stories, you will never look at that person the same way ever again.

So go outside and take your video cameras and your microphones with you. Join our “Everyday Heroes Project” and help provide a voice to the people who are part of your everyday lives, but until now have been silent. Post these stories to the web, to Blip.tv or YouTube or Brightcove or wherever you post your videos. Tag them “everydayheroes” and share them.

Help people tell their stories.

In the process you would have helped make the world a better place, you would have gotten to know some more people, and you would have discovered a few Everyday Heroes. There could be worse ways to spend the summer.

And PLEASE help spread the word about “The EveryDay Heros” Project.

I personally agree with Jeff and I do think that by documenting every day heroes we as a human race could change how we view one another and more importantly how we treat one another.

We need to send out a message to all people from all walks of life via videos on the internet that each of us is a Hero in our own way.

Each of us has had to overcome something difficult that has brought us to the brink and back. By taking videos and documenting every day Heroes we could create a stronger bond between all of us humans.

Maybe it is time for you to take out a video camera and document a story of an every day hero.
