Occupy Wall Street – Rebuilding Community

Occupy Wall Street  really is a very democratic movement that is open to everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, race, or socioeconomic status (unless you’re a billionaire!) I hope all people embrace it because it is seeks to promote human rights and everyone having a voice.  The thing that is really unique about the OWS movement is that it really strives to be inclusive of everyone.  This is one of its biggest strengths.
The occupation offers an opportunity for people to rebuild community and bonds with others across all the differences that the powers that be always want to use to divide us.  In fact, this is the crucial stage it is in currently–rebuilding broken connections–and this needs to be done prior to deciding on a plan of action.  I like the fact that the movement has resisted pressure to come up with a plan and has focused on the process at this point. I hope all of us can become empowered to find a voice within it and be heard.
