Lucy Belnora is an artist, craftswoman, explorer and organic gardener. She's a leader, student and participator. Some see her as sister, daughter, mother, neighbor or friend. Lucy mainly thinks of herself as an average person.
Increasingly concerned about heavy-hearted issues like poverty, climate change, hunger, and the loss of jobs and medical care in the United States, Lucy finds herself compelled to speak out and work with other regular people to try to solve these problems.
Not long ago, Lucy says that she sat by the edge of a small pond, praying for guidance. She was feeling particularly helpless that day in the face of so much despair in the world. She mindlessly tossed a stick in the water and watched the little concentric waves gently radiate outward until they widened so much that they softly lapped the pond's shores. She felt calmness and resolve as she imagined those gentle waves continuing past the shore, across the land and reaching around the world. It was right then that Lucy understood - our small efforts can begin a sustainable chain reaction.
She believes we can no longer sit back and just trust the people in power to sort it all out on their own. It's important, she says, that we all participate in making the world a better place. And, fortunate for us, Lucy also writes at Kansas Free Press as well as at EverydayCitizen.com.
