we will endure

A year ago, police brutally raided Occupy DC and tore down the Tent of Dreams. They punched us in the gut, hit us in the head with batons, trampled our tents, and threw our furniture around. All for sleeping in tents and dreaming of a better world.

They don’t understand that we are flowers who grew from concrete.
They don’t understand that we will endure, and someday they will join us.
They don’t understand that we are learning to use our voices and look within.
They don’t understand that we will all learn to flex our muscles.
They don’t understand that YOU CANNOT STOP AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME.

We, all of us, will be back, and we will be stronger.
