          As some celebrate the Fourth of July with carne asada barbecues, hot dogs and fireworks, we at BD pause to celebrate those whose ambitions extend beyond themselves. As the country begins the passage toward normalcy, this issue commends those rare individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the aspirations of our communities. These folks share a common attribute: they see “doing” as more important than “talking” and “activism” more effectual than “popular rhetoric.”
