A full night's sleep in a bed
is such an amazing thing. One of the most beautiful things about occupying is the fact that it really has taught me to appreciate the things I do have, even if they are few. Having a clean, calm, home to go to, with a clean, soft bed is a remarkable gift, something that all people should have. That’s why this movement is so beautiful, why it has so much gravity. What kind of world is this, where veterans, children, expectant mothers, any one at all, should have to spend their daylight hours wondering whether they’ll have somewhere safe to sleep that night, or at least somewhere where they won’t be harrased by the police?
It’s horrible, & we need to change this. Occupy Orlando, guys. Let’s make this city take us seriously, let’s force them to see that their ordinances need to change. This city has a a plethora of ordinances that are designed soley to hurt the homeless & those who try to help them, & that is frankly not the kind of city I want to live in or pay taxes to. What about you?
