It’s Ours

Walked around the tent city, home of Occupy Olympia. Felt good, like the sixties, like making a difference. So many different perspectives…an old union organizer, a young anarchist, lots of young families with little kids… All trying to balance being heard with listening. All with the same reason to be there: it’s ours, and we’re claiming it. Saw a sign by some chairs that said Elder Circle. That’s where we’ll sit.
