    “With the country in such deep economic distress, almost everyone is forced to think about economics and politics, giving the new protests a “major emotional resonance,” she said.

    “So there is a tension between this emotionally powerful movement,” she said, “and the emptiness of the message itself so far.” – http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/04/us/anti-wall-street-protests-spread-to-other-cities.html

    My general comments regarding the pm GA meeting yesterday – emotions are high, tensions are high, people are angry and want to talk about it, which is a really good thing. We must all remember why we are doing this and not get caught up in directing our frustrations on each other. The beginning is always more chaotic, but we must persist and work through our differences and face these communication challenges, because there is much work to be done in the road ahead.

    Keep Occupying!

    Was just wondering if there is any way to notify those of us who have limited time to attend the occupation about upcoming marches on banks, State Capitol, etc. Unfortunately, I am mobility limited and would like to show up at the rallies that are held in conjunction with the occupation at City Hall but cannot walk the distances required.

    Much appreciated.

    And thank you for all that you are doing. I’ve been twice and can’t tell you enough how it’s helping me deal with the present situation in America.

    Great job!
