Universality of Religion a part of Occupy Wall Street

Religion claims its place in Occupy Wall Street

begin quote from "Religion claims it place" above:

No shoes are allowed in the "Sacred Space" tent here, but you can bring just about any faith or spiritual tradition.
A day's schedule finds people balancing their chakras, a "compassion meditation" and a discussion of a biblical passage in Luke. Inside, a Buddha statue sits near a picture of Jesus, while a hand-lettered sign in the corner points toward Mecca. end quote.

I think "Occupy Wall Street" is a part of the universality on all levels demonstrated by participants of "Occupy Wall Street". The mostly college age students who are demonstrating have learned a lot from the last 10 or 20 years of troubles around the world. One of the amazing things about "Occupy Wall Street is that every common man on Earth seems to be represented there in one way or another. So, people who can see the needs of all are going to support this movement. The world needs to change to better cover the needs of all. What is happening now is not working. Let's hope the changes come sooner and not later before half the world dies from starvation and exposure to the elements.
