Love doesn’t have to be between 2 people. it can be between strangers. or friends. or one person and a culture that’s just finally starting to find its voice. call it hyperbole or whatever, but i would put it out there that OWS is a new type of love that most of us haven’t had. at least I haven’t— feeling a unity w/ a cultural zeitgeist. it’s a certain type of love and togetherness. just something to consider. love that comes from frustration, or tiredness, or anger, or debt, or a desire to create change. it’s transformative.
So here i’ve mashed up a Rihanna lyric w/ how many are feeling about Occupy Wall Street. If you haven’t seen Rihanna’s INCREDIBLE video for her new single WE FOUND LOVE, directed by Melina Matsoukas, you’re missing out. Just like you’re missing out if you’re in NYC & haven’t gone down to Liberty Plaza. Or gone wherever the Occupy near you is. GO THERE.
