I'm really interested in Michelle's idea of drawing awareness to those around us; as a transplanted New Yorker, it's especially evident that we don't really acknowledge the fact that we're surrounded by millions of people every day... I will definitely keep checking back to see your progress! Just one thing: your text should (grammatically) state, "something just happened between you and ME," because the preposition references the direct objects (you and me.) Sorry about the grammar fascism...
