Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap #occupy

Weekly Writing Challenge: Mind the Gap.

I would like to think of my self as a caring person w ho takes an interest in what is happening in the  so-called  big bad world .

I remember  vaguely the occupy movement starting off in the september of last year, and it gave me a buzz  just hearing  what people  were up to although I must admit  I have great trouble in understanding the banks  situation which involves my most dreaded subject of the universe   Maths  which I am sure  comes into the banking situation somewhere along the line .

I believe one of the slogans was  1% holds the money and makes the  big decisions  and hey what about the 99% ( HOPE I GOT  THE MATHS PART RIGHT THEIR)  I felt a sudden urge of wishing I lived in America so could  join in although knew this was all a big  fantasy as really don’t like travelling I blame Mr Aspergers well  I have to blame something !!

The occupy movement  soon spread  to other countries about 20 in all which I suppose is not that many when you think about it but apparently a great effect is felt I n the world when a butterfly flaps its wings !

The occupy movement came to the Uk and again i felt like joining  in but Mr aspergers  does not like me to travel . I agreed with what they were doing to an extent  but could  not understand what they were doing outside |St Paul’s cathedral as surely a  holy place can not be  to blame for the mess we are in  but hey think !maybe I am wrong there and Jesus  getting ratty with the moneylender and other rich folk springs to mind !

I try not to get involved with things discussing money due to not understanding but i do understand the financial  mess we are in affects us all and anyone of us can fall through a gap or hole and needs society  to stand up and help .

It is a shame  that  the occupy movement no longer makes the news like it used to which is  because when it started  off, it was something new and exciting and after a while protesting becomes yesterdays news  boring ! especially if the wrong people get involved and all they want to do is cause trouble which is the wrong picture that most protests want to portray!

The words of Jesus again spring to mind their will always  be poor  with us but that does not stop us trying to make the world a better place as the greatest sin of the world I think Is apathy or telling people  about  a situation that upsets you but then doing nothing but moan  as we are all capable of doing something .

A friend told  me about her granddaughter  protesting in Liverpool and I told her  ” you should be proud of her at least she  is doing something , which Perhaps  I should do  instead of letting Mr aspergers  stand in the  way
