By Small Means Great Things are Brought to Pass

Daniel Chester French's statue, Minute Man, adjacent to the North Bridge, the historical site in the Battle of Concord, the first day of battle in the American War of Independence.
"The thunderbolt falls on an inch of ground, but the light of it fills the horizon." 
From Ralph Waldo Emerson's address at the 1875 dedication of French's Minuteman statue alluding to how the local resistance to the King's troops had far-reaching effects. How far has the First Vision, or the actions in our own lives reached?
