In Chapter 1: Making Our Lives Count, Loeb explores how ordinary and seemingly powerless individuals can create powerful social change. This is a hard concept for many to grasp because it cuts against the grain of our culture. It helps, therefore, to focus on the humble beginnings of the individuals profiled who started out just as apprehensive as you and perhaps more powerless. Choose two of the individuals profiled and compare and contrast their stories in light of Loeb’s statement that “America’s prevailing culture insists that nothing we can matter.” Use the Venn Diagram to organize your information.
