In my brief time within this movement, the first time I've attempted to become actively involved in much of anything outside of exercising my right to vote each year, I've learned a great deal.
The number one thing I learned is that of the power of the people. There are many great people in many great places throughout this country and indeed this world. Those people are willing to stand up for what they believe in. And no, that doesn't mean grabbing your gun and joining your fellow man to stand up against oppression. While having the threat of armed violence certainly does a great deal, it does not achieve what peaceful activism itself can.
People are waking up. I have never seen anything like this in my lifetime. Sure there was the protests at the Republican National Convention here in 2000, and I got to witness the WTO protests in Seattle from afar, but that is through the skewed eyes of the media, who often times don't see things in the same ways that you and I do.
There are many hardworking individuals with real jobs and real lives giving their every spare minute to bring back access to the American dream that somehow has been lost for so many.
They are making history and it is important that we take heed. There comes a time in life when people must realize that the stuff they are watching on tv is just an image, a man made creation of things they think you will like. People need to awaken to the fact that there are things going on outside right this very moment that are changing history. You too can be a part of it, we need you to be a part of it. If there was ever a moment the time is now. Stand up and peacefully assemble. Stand up for your rights. Stand up and walk with your fellow man to show we are not going to sit idly by and watch our lives on tv, that we are cognizant of our manifest destiny and we are ready to fix this world.
Lets work together to create and build something special. We have the ability to make a new and bring back the greatness we were all once afforded. It will take work. It won't be easy, but everyone will benefit, and we will make this world a better place!
