I saw an interview with William Shatner this week where he said that looking at photos depresses him because those things/people no longer exist. The moment is gone and you can't get it back and it makes him so sad. I don't feel that way, but I can understand it.
Moving on to happier things...
Across the street from the WTC area, the park was filled with Occupy Wall Street protesters -- a joy to behold. Drums, music, dancing, and hundreds of people sitting/standing quietly (or not) to protest what has been so destructive to the economy.
There were plenty of police standing around --also peacefully, thank god, after last week's inexcusable debacle -- and people were so well behaved that some of the cops were reduced to reading the newspaper, just to relieve their boredom.
There was something deliciously incongruous here. Made me smile.
There were so many people with signs that I couldn't take enough pictures. Here are just a few that were accessible.
All in all, another good Manhattan day in perfect Fall weather and in good company. Best of all, it was so good to see so many people coming together in a common cause. Whether it will be taken seriously by those who need to act to change things, is another question. Hope springs eternal...
