Mark Twain

I passed through a bookstore and saw a magnet with a quote by Mark Twain. The magnet sits on my desk with only three other quotes; the referent is similar in two of them about exploring, dreaming and discovering. Throw caution to the wind, your dreams are in front of you, let go of doubt.

“Twenty years from you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  Mark Twain

Occupy Denver

1450 Broadway

Occupying Denver

My mother and I put together a Mitzvah Package for Occupy Denver, and it involved teamwork. One part was her making fresh hot chicken that came from her heart.  The other part I delivered the packages to Civic Center Park, downtown Denver, CO.  When I got out of the car a couple of polite young men came to the car to help take the donations.  I explained, “I am a daughter of Holocaust Survivors, and my mom, and me support the movement.”

Once I said, “I am a daughter of Holocaust Survivors”, a young man started sharing some ideologies from Torah. He shared that he’s Rastafarian, and the Rastafarian Movement reads Torah, and believes in the Old Testament and Twelve Tribes of Israel.  He shares his beliefs with others and helps support the Occupy Denver Movement.  He said these words to me as I parted “Go forward and prosper” funny Spock always said that same phrase in every Star Trek, oddly enough, that’s the Torah portion reading for this week, Lech Lecha.

Pay attention Christian Evangelicals, Republicans, and the Republicans in Congress, and the Senate, the 99% people do not like you. The 99% people do not like the Koch Brothers or Wall Street Bankers.  The tax breaks you guys get are disgusting, lopsided, and Bushes tax cuts destroyed America.

The people of Occupy Denver, they do not like Michael Moore, they think he’s a 1% opportunist. He came to Denver to promote his new book and paid a visit to Occupy Denver. Back tracking, he took a break from “book signing” during his visit at Occupy Denver. During his 20-minute speech, he was confronted by a news reporter from CBS 4 Denver.  That question, put Michael Moore on the defensive, as he left for The Tattered Cover Bookstore for a book promotional book signing w/ press, and live broadcast with the Rachel Maddow show.

The young man explained that today was cleaning and moving day and those sleeping bags that were wet went to the laundry mat. The moving was in honor of the Veterans Day Parade. The Occupy Denver set-up a mailbox for mail, a clothing station, and they share with homeless and others in need, that’s kindness amazing.  Perfect strangers came together with the same compassions for a cause and are caring for one another. Incase you want to send a postcard or donations the mailbox address is 1450 Broadway.

The message is loud and clear; stop the 1% from destroying 99% of the American Dream…
