He said he 'used' to be a gamer. And, although I think I might know what that means, what is more important is that he believes he can help the OccupyWallstreet protestors on the ground and those around the world. He does it by 'connecting' all kinds of people to each other. Young and Old, Business Owners and Workin folk, Canadians, French, and little ole me in Washington State. And more, probably quite a few more, cause his website is linked in to every 'Occupation' that is sprouting up across the globe as fast as he can. Folks come in to the site and ask if they can give him a link to theirs. He never hesitates.
In fact, this young man is working sometimes around the clock in a small space where the air-conditioning has 'broken'. Its hard to sleep, and hard to be awake, and he does this to keep us all in this thing together. He likes the together part, and making it happen.
I can tell. Cause he has taken some real hits from the live stream, who made him change his URL. What ever that means, and then, they asked him to stop linking, and we all know what that means. It is reported that they don't think his stuff is professional enough. In fact, someone over there 'took' leadership, and 'tossed' him aside. They tossed aside someone who made a food source available to the protestors on the ground. They tossed aside a hard working member of the 99%, also on this site, who is making possible a 'People's' generator for those overnighter, live streaming protestors working to hold this park in the name of the god almighty GAP that seperates hard working Americans from those who hold all the resources. In fact, there are some passionate people all over this Occupy Wallstreet Worldwide site. They believe. And now, so do I. They would all be pretty pissed if i didn't link the live stream site.. cause they know it will take the 99%, and they will not hold a grudge, they just keep at it.
Raven, his name on OWWW, and thirteenth, are going to the protest. Thirteenth is on his way and Raven leaves Friday. they believe too. Just as Cody, the name of that 18 year old American who put this site on its feet, states he just knew he had to be a part of this, now so do they... it don't get no better then that my brothers and sisters. There's another OWWW, I call him Arch, he runs his business, works to bring the needed resources to the Occupation, and then goes home and does it some more. You'll have to ask this Marine Medic why, he was to busy to ask.
I hesitated to use their 'names', cause these people are dedicated to the leaderless way in which this rebellion has developed, and the other dedication is toward the peaceful way in which these protestors have met this 11th day. So.. I guess you could say I'm gettin on board. These people have shown me what it is to overcome the always expected 'exclusion', get mad, and take the old 'ball' and go home! They didn't take the ball and go home, when something goes mainstream and that chemical kicks in and causes someone to kick some to the curb, these 99ers just keep their eyes on the way and the why it started, in the name of the 99%. And they keep going. No corporate culture here.
I'm one of the 99%. And, if you are one of the 99% and you are considering taking up your place in this effort to find value and hold back the tide of 1%'ers who want more of their already unusually large part of this nations resources, well, i'd say go give em a look see. They are regular folk like you and me who have withstood the onslaught of this economic take over of those resources, and they are doing a very fine job of it too.
