Naomi Klein published a short and sweet piece in The Nation with her speech at Occupy Wall Street in October 2011. I just wanted to quote my favourite part of it so it is locked into my memory bank:
There are some things that don’t matter.
- What we wear.
- Whether we shake our fists or make peace signs.
- Whether we can fit our dreams for a better world into a media soundbite.
And here are a few things that do matter:
- Our courage.
- Our moral compass.
- How we treat each other.
I loved this part too Sylvia!
Salient points – summarized well … things that matter & things that don’t !
