If you have the time, however, and the ability, and the resources to aid in this time of dire need, I give you the above information. Far too often in this country, we revere "heroes" who catch or kick or hit, who run fast and skate hard, who exist only in movie scripts or on television screens. Real heroes, like the ones currently engaged in the work of the organizations listed above, will never have their names in the paper, never be heralded, never be known. But they are heroes nonetheless, and upon this moment, we need heroes like them.

Heroes like you.

British Petroleum Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, after meeting with President Obama the other day, said, "I care about the small people. I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don't care, but that is not the case at BP. We care about the small people."

I am a small person. So are you. But when We The Small People band together and put our collective shoulder to the wheel, we become huge, magnificent, heroic, and above all else, truly effective. Let's show the "big people" what we small people can do when we get huge, when we get pissed, when we get active, when we become heroes.
