Occupy Deer Run

I couldn't sit on the side lines watching any longer.
As the protesters for occupy whatever were gaining strength in numbers
I felt a moral obligation to join the ranks, so I took to the streets today
( actually I took to my front porch)
to have my voice heard.
Occupy whatever seems to be a chance to voice whatever it is
you are unhappy with in your life.
Occupy Wall street, an American Revolution was actually started by a bunch of Canadians,
an activist group called Adbusters. They are protesting social inequality between the "Have's" and the "Have Not's".
FYI, I'm a "Have Not."
Anyway, this seemed like a good cause which has been proven by the on going demonstrations in cities throughout the United States and the world.

A light bulb went off for me when I saw that 70 Harvard students took to the streets,
let's call it Occupy Harvard, to protest. Now I'm confused. I thought this was about those with money and those without.
Doesn't it cost $50,000 a year to go to Harvard? What's their beef?

Well, 70 students got fed up with the economics course they were taking and left the class room, taking to the streets. They want to be heard.

So, on their cue, I'm marching today.


Deer Run is the name of the development that I live in which is located in New London, PA., the political hotbed of Chester County, PA.
We may be a couple hundred miles from Wall Street, but our voices are loud.
This sleepy town of just over 5000 people have voices too.

I'm not sure what I'm marching for but I will be here day and night.

Good luck with the marching. My son just started a facebook page called Occupy Your Street. This fits well with his little movement. He wants to put a tent in front of my house and signs, who knows where this will go.
