I was arrested with this fine man yesterday morning. This is Captain Lewis and November 17th also happens to be his Birthday.
We all sang him Happy Birthday as we stood in our cuffs waiting to be booked for peacefully protesting. We all greeted him with cheers for joining the movement.
He said that we, meaning all of us who have been involved in Occupy Wall Street these last two months, were the ones who deserved the applause because our strength and courage to stand up for what we believe in inspired him. Ah, what a beautiful day!
