7. Here's one more relevant point -- about caring for the homeless


For a few months, Occupy camps nationwide were feeding and caring for the homeless, and more than anything, that respite is needed. At Occupy Philadelphia they not only fed the homeless, they provided warm clothing, medical care and companionship. I am sure the other camps did the same.

We need to reinvent the Occupy camp concepts. Find a way to work with city & state government to have permanent Occupy sites that work with existing services and organizations to provide shelter, solace & sustenance to those in need. . . .

I am asking each one of you who reads this to join me in changing the world. We can find a space to setup an Occupy Camp Shelter, we can care for each other.

If we don't stop and change the world, who will?
