Tomorrow marks the three-month anniversary of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement. In that short time, the movement has spread to thousands of cities across the nation and around the world. And--despite the criticisms on the movement for not making clear what it wants changed--it has dramatically changed public awareness and political discussions. The problem of income and wealth inequality has become a hot topic in news and interpersonal discussions. The issue has now been clearly spelled out in stark black-and-white terms. Here is a photo I took at the start of Wall Street this summer before the "Occupy Wall Street" movement started. This spot is in front of Trinity Church and just a couple of blocks from Zuccotti Park (the birthplace of the movement).
