What if we had a day to remember the quiet people? The ones who stand up in subways and give their seat to others. The ones who do the things they say they'll do. The ones who participate in the committees they join or read the books they vote for in their reading groups. The people with integrity. They make all the other people who are skipping through life holding their breath and trying to keep together the cockeyed puzzle that resembles a life look utterly silly. What if we had a day to remember them?
Well if we did, I'd start with Debi at Emma Tree. Because one of Debi's blog posts was what got me thinking about this -- about the quiet person -- and how we don't pay nearly enough attention to those people.
Debi has a feature in Artful Blogging this month, on sale beginning today. If you haven't been to her blog yet, you should head on over. It will give you something to think about, too.
