Change. The buzzword of 2008, but this time the word is used differently. I saw this picture in the We Love DC pool on flickr, by user VotePrime. Vote Prime snapped a picture of this sheet of paper stuck to the King Street Metro pole. The text of the page says:
“We don’t need to engage in grand heroic actions to participate in the process of change.
You know that guy you pass every day on your way to work? I actually stop to say hi.
Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people can transform the world. – Howard Zinn”
A little googling, and Howard Zinn is the author of A People’s History of the United States. And I’m guessing whoever posted this is just quoting him, and Zinn himself didn’t make these. Has anyone seen more of these around? Much like my beloved stikman, I appreciate street art that makes me think, or even just breaks up the monotony of my commute.
I’d love to see more, and I get the feeling there are variations to this one, so if you see any, snap them and add them to the WLDC pool on flickr. (And while you’re at it, enter your holiday pictures into our 2008 Holiday Photo contest.)
