SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Thank you, Occupy Iowa City

I am writing to thank the people who are involved in Occupy Iowa City. Thank you for your efforts to help us think about our country, our United States of America. How do we want to live? Thank you for taking time to agree on and share the 12 Principles you wrote in October.

I am grateful that you stated No. 7: "We affirm our commitment to peace and the belief that entities, including nations, states, and private capital, should never pursue war or brutality of any kind."

Elliott Adams, the president of National Veterans for Peace, recently stated, "The Occupy Movement is the greatest step toward democracy in my lifetime."

Thank you, Occupy Iowa City, for reminding us that we need to be responsible citizens and not leave our country's welfare up to corporations and the politicians influenced by corporate money and power.

It is important that we get involved and do what we each can to work to make our world a more just, safer, and peaceful place for all people, the 99 percent and the 1 percent. Thank you, Occupy Iowa City.

Pamela Fitzgerald
