What do a letter-writing school age girl, the father of a toddler with Downs Syndrome, a WWI soldier on the front lines, and a civil rights icon have in common? They all made history for some very unusually normal things. In this episode, we are going to look at people who became famous for things that we do, or could do every day: writing letters, sitting on a bus, playing soccer, or just showing love to a child. Special thanks to Nate Frazier, Stephen Green and Stephen Carter who continually show me what doing good looks like and provided the inspiration for this episode.
