On The Livestream Ended: How I Got Off My Computer And Onto The Street At Occupy Oakland

I really enjoyed your article. Personaly I am an activist. Maybe because of my life experiences. I am an older woman who is not quite healthy. But I understand I am a part of the 99% and am unable to sit passively by or just read and mentally support the movement. I live in Ohio and I am a part of the Cleveland movement. I can not physically do as much as I would like because of my health. BUT I do all I can. I attend the location on most days and I donate blankets, hot food & beverages. I encourage and thank our occupiers I know how hard their job is. They are out there for all of us and I am grateful to have a society of people strong enough and willing to fight for the rights of myself, my children and grandchildren who will have to endure the burden of what we have allowed our society to become. I ask if you can not physically participate. Since it is for us all, maybe you could donate blankets, food, heating elements ( like the hand held warming paks and foot warmers), what ever you can. Even encouranging words as you past by. A thank you, a horn honk anything you can do to acknowledge your support of the occupation. We will all benifit from the effects of a solid unified movement if we all stick together and do what we can. Don't stop writing your elected officals letters of your discontent. The numbers of mass mailings do help. But please people , Please do something. Don't just observe and hope things work out for the brave warriors who are standing up for us. Help where or how ever you can I am in support of all cities who are involved in the occupation. Thank You
