GIANT TASKS/tiny people

Mindport has a number of new residents, all of whom are
under an inch tall, all of whom are doing big jobs – vacuuming up tangled
messes, feeding each other, cleaning gum off sidewalks, recreating without
technology, ending racism, confronting environmental collapse.  One rounds the corner, and there they
are, heads down, working hard, chipping away, little by little, day after day,
only occasionally swayed by the seeming impossibility of solving the problems
at hand. 

I
admire their diligence and determination in the face of what may be
insurmountable obstacles, and in quiet moments I can hear them shouting to us
in their tiny voices, “This is our time! 
These are our tasks!  If we
can do it, so can you!”
