A Visit to the Occupation
October 30, 2011 § Leave a comment
It’s snowing and raining, hard, three days before Halloween. Thanks, Global Warming (extreme weather patterns). We are carrying bags with blankets and sleeping bags to Occupy Wall St. Making our way through the encampment we ask “Which way to the Comfort station?”
“Donations?” he asks.
“Ok, cool. It’s right over there.”
I take a few steps then turn around. “Here, take my gloves. I can get more.”
“Really?” he beams.
He’s tugging on the gloves. They were a little big on me so they are a bit tight on him.
“Thank you. This really helps. I’m out here on patrol.”
We wave and walk off, back to our car and then our warm dry apartment. The heroes stay at Liberty Plaza braving the elements to protest corruption, greed, and injustice.
