Yesterday, one of the speakers at the labor rally said: “We found each other.” That sentiment captures the beauty of what is being created here. A wide-open space (as well as an idea so big it can’t be contained by any space) for all the people who want a better world to find each other. We are so grateful. “Why are they protesting?” ask the baffled pundits on TV. Meanwhile, the rest of the world asks: “What took you so long?” “We’ve been wondering when you were going to show up.” And most of all: “Welcome.”While sceptics may doubt the importance of this movement, people are seeing that putting our bodies on the ground floor is this is the only way real change can happen. One needs to look no further than Arab Spring movement that has spread across Africa and the Middle East for evidence that people can enact change when they become willing to stand up for what they believe in. Change is not gonna happen by going on twitter or by making new Facebook posts,though social media has been harnessed incredibly well to help these ideas go viral. Real change requires people coming together, discussing the issues in person and re-imagining new ways of being, and questioning what we we've been taught to believe. This sentiment is eloquently conveyed by Michael Stone in the video below.
