Since the middle of September, we have seen the entire nation taking on different charters of Occupy Wall Street. While Occupy Together and Occupy Wall Street are the central hubs for this movement, I will be posting different stories, videos and events that are happening on this page as well as different posts that I write. In the New York Times today, the article on the non-violent protests shared a quote from Michael Kazin, a professor of history at Georgetown University. He said, “it was unclear if the current protests would lead to a lasting movement, which would require the newly unleashed passions to be channeled into institutions and shaped into political goals.”
Like the rest of the country, I have no clue to what the political goals or the right avenue for change is at the moment, but as this gains momentum, and leaders of this movement are chosen throughout the country, we will begin to see those needs and goals appear. That is if this has the kinetic energy and the fuel to keep going the length it needs to make an impact and ignite the motivation from millions of others.
