“Because everybody, every single person, has a story to tell. Every single ordinary person has an extraordinary story. We might think that we are unremarkable, that our lives are boring, just because we aren’t doing ground-breaking things or making headlines or winning awards. But the truth is we all do something that is fascinating, that is brave, that is something we should be proud of. Every day people do things that are not celebrated. That is what we should be writing about. The unsung heroes, the people that don’t believe they are heroes at all because they are just doing what they believe they have to do in their lives.”
Thank you so much for writing this, Cecelia Ahern.
