about the book
Find out how thirty-one Pasadena community contributors approach these questions. Learn how they work to connect with others and find meaning in their lives.
We live in a time when ideas of community are breaking down as we rush through busy lives, driving out the garage each morning, driving back in each night only to disappear into the solitude of our homes, disconnected from our surroundings. Do we believe that nothing we do matters? Or do we roll up our sleeves and participate in the community? Do we get to know our neighbors? Do we feel powerful enough to initiate action on a local issue that we care about? Fortunately, plenty of citizens in Pasadena do, and this book will provide you with a snapshot of their meaningful lives and give you hope about the future.
All cities are filled with talented, passionate people who make a difference on a daily basis. Take a moment to identify who these folks are in your community and then imagine what your city would be like if they didn't exist! Power of One honors the work of these unsung heroes and, hopefully, will inspire others to achieve such significant accomplishments as well!
