Because one day of Thanksgiving is not enough (7/7)

A day late, I close this week of thanksgiving with my appreciation and gratitude for the Occupy movement.

When it started on Wall Street, I was sympathetic but pessimistic. "What good will that do?" I thought.

Then it started to spread, and I thought, "Hey, that's awesome! Too bad winter's coming just as they're getting up some steam."

And now, every day, I'm increasingly excited and inspired to see people standing up to the systems in our socioeconomic structure that harm and limit the vast majority of us while funneling more resources to the narrow top.

I can hardly wait to see what happens next.
