Ordinary Men and Women

We are but ordinary men and women.  And because we are ordinary men and women, then we are non-conformist rebels - dreamers.  Yes, yes we can say that that overweight woman in Walmart - buying all her shit there - that is a dreamer-rebel?  Yes.  (...).  The rebellion can be be dormant, latent, but it is there and it is ordinary men and women that can produce the change in the world.
