A Passionate Photo Narrative Inspired by My Time with #OccupyDC
I’m rarely at a loss for words. However, as I sit before the screen, attempting to distill the intensity of my experience at #OccupyDC, a single thought keeps repeating: I’m going to fail.
See, as I walked briskly down K Street, making my way toward McPherson Square, I did not understand how the collection of tents that winked in the distance would change me. I was not prepared, a stone’s throw from the White House, for how the people with whom I would speak and the scenes I was about to witness would so transform me.
