It can mean common, traditional, humdrum, everyday. Boring.
I find that the ordinary person is more inspiring than the starlet, the tycoon or the power broker.
I firmly believe that it is the Ordinary Citizen who makes this world go ’round. I passionately feel that we are desperate to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference.
But, what is an Ordinary Citizen?
Frankly, I’m still figuring that out. I’d love to hear your perspective on it.
I want to periodically profile Ordinary Citizens who show us what it means to be extraordinary. If you know of somebody who should be profiled, please contact me.
Let’s tell the story of the Ordinary Citizen!
So, who writes this thing?
Just some ordinary ol’ guy named Wade Abbott.
I’m a husband to a wonderful wife. I’m blessed to be the father of two young boys. I have a bachelor’s degree in materials engineering from RPI. I recently completed my master’s degree in public communication at The College of Saint Rose.
My life seems to revolve around my family, roller coasters, LED Christmas lights, wacky Halloween costumes for the kiddos, an appreciation of college hockey and a love of Star Wars. I’ll keep sharing some of that. I’m also a bit of a political junkie. In the past, I’ve written at length about politics, but I’m trying to move away from that direction.
Fair warning: I might throw in some humor, some of it *ahem* pun-ishing. Possibly some sarcasm, too.
Ultimately, I believe that I’m just an average guy. And I’m okay with that.
I’m in good company.
