The Occupy Edmonton Movement (and the worldwide Occupy Movement) are showing the world that everything is not okay. It's about time we stood up for ourselves, our planet, and those who do not have a voice (3rd world Countries' citizens, our children, and the future of us all).
We live on a planet with limited resources, and yet we live our day-to-day lives as if there will always be enough resources for everyone. This is simply not true. We must change the way things are before we all face very serious consequences (starvation and drought being the most difficult to deal with).
Millions of people die every year from simple illnesses that are easily fixed, or not having access to clean water, or not having sufficient food to sustain themselves, and yet we sit by and do nothing. We must learn that life is about more than just greed, and that if we truly harness the best of today's technologies, no one will ever have to die from a lack of food or water ever again. There is a better world in our future. It will become a reality -- I just hope it doesn't take the suffering caused by greed and corruption to get us there. Love conquers all - and when we start embracing our fellow man (everywhere, around the world) and stop trying to lie and steal from everyone, we will be a much better human race.
