Meditation on the front lines at Occupy Wall Street

People with the Occupy Wall Street protest in Zuccotti Park form a circle and meditate on October 5, 2011 in New York. The Occupy Wall Street protests started Sept. 17 with a few dozen demonstrators who tried to pitch tents in front of the New York Stock Exchange. Since then, hundreds have set up camp nearby in Zuccotti Park and have become increasingly organized, lining up medical aid and legal help and printing their own newspaper. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)

There needs to be prayer and meditation. Many fundamentalist Christians are in agreement about the need to look at ourselves, to reject greed, to pray for peace, to love each other. Bring them into this, invite them in. Go beyond meditation to meditation and prayer, making clear how much we all need to let go of hatred of any kind, follow the golden rule and beyond that, love even those – especially those – doing harm to the country and world. You’re left out groups that would support such efforts. You could have signs asking those passing by to join in a few minutes of prayer for the well-being of the country and the world.
