I think occupy movements should focus on campaigning and protesting and demonstrating for local tax and bureaucracy changes they think are archaic and nonsensical in these modern, stressful times. I completely agree with comments above, though I don't want to advocate in an aggressive manner: protests, movements for change depend on people realizing it's time to take a stance and change things. because *everyone* is tired, busy, and working to keep their home and food on the table, it's difficult to imagine giving more of yourself to a movement that has its ebbs and flows but seems to be ebbing. it's okay if occupy dies, but the quest for change cannot and should not. so if you're and educated economist, lawyer, etc with a passion for change, help your local movement. be the change you wish to see. stop sitting on the fence and bitching when things go ways you don't like (teensy bit of aggression). rally; even though you're tired, bitter, depressed. just fucking start and you'll be surprised how good it feels to pursue a passion, a dream, a change. martin luther king jr had a dream, so did ghandi. don't you?

I've never been violated in the way that your home, your person, your life was. You are incredible just *for* keeping it together, not mentioning your intelligence or compassion. I want to say a heartfelt, sky-shouting thank-you for writing this. As I said, I haven't experienced what you have, but I have been in dark places. Everything you said for yourself, I drew strength from. Everything you said reminds me, pushes me, to live life- to grit my teeth through the pain, the pain of life, and keep going. So thank you for that, and for speaking. Thank you for living, thank you for being. And maybe this is weird- but I apologize to you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart, that such an experience, such pain had to happen. I offer sincere blessings.
