I'm so proud of the protesters in New York City ... Z-Park as they call it now. They are the people who are just fed up and Making the Time to go to another city to show their disgust with what has happened to the middle class in our country right now. I wish I had time and didn't have to go to school, I believe I'd be one of them. I've protested before but only if I really believe in the cause. This cause I believe in. The Greed on Wall Street has no accountability. Nobody has gone to jail for milking the American Pension Funds of their hard-earned money. Where are all the jobs? Does one CEO really need a $14 million dollar bonus, can't there be ANY jobs created from at least HALF of that money?
Events are the ephemera of history; they pass across its stage like fireflies, hardly glimpsed before they settle back into darkness and as often as not into oblivion. Every event, however brief, has to be sure a contribution to make, lights up some dark corner or even some wide vista of history. Nor it it only political history which benefits most, for every historical landscape--political, economic, social, even geographical--is illumined by the intermittent flare of the event. ~ Fernand Braudel
