  • There is nothing that anyone in Oklahoma can do to change the world. We have no Wall Street, we have no corporate heart. This is a backwater state in a backwater part of the country.

    But here we are, doing it anyway.

    OWS is not a movement that will be defined by its successes or failures. This is not a group of people with a list of demands.

    This is one person standing up and saying that our government is wrong, and that it has been wrong for decades, and that we have always known that it was wrong. One person, multiplied by millions, each giving solace to the next.

    Even in Oklahoma, when we believe in something, we have to stand. Even here, we see the state of our country.

    If you lack the power to change, does that then necessitate that you never try?
