It’s easy for us to lose sight of our surroundings as we hurry from one place to another. We’re constantly looking down at our phones or talking on them, or listening to music through devices that do an exceptional job of drowning out everything else. It’s not anyone’s fault necessarily – distractions and multitasking have just become a standard.
Febin Bellamy is a student at Georgetown University that saw this trend on campus and is now making a point to turn it around. Similar to the popular movement, Humans of New York, Unsung Heroes is his way of bringing light to the humans of Georgetown University – the groundskeepers, cafeteria workers, janitors, gardeners and all others who get passed by all while maintaining a place where people can hurry from one place to another.
