Around six thirty Occupiers came full circle, where the movement first took its first halting steps, to Children's Park.

There Pat Herron told me that "It's been great. I've met wonderful people here trying to make the world a better place." She added, we have now reached to other groups.

"We have accomplished a lot, moving money out of big banks, yes on 37 and keeping Walmart out." (This is the Walmart in Sherman Heights in the end the Judge allowed Walmart to continue building where the Farmer's Market is.)

She especially relished the week of action to stop the TPP, this includes the week of teach ins that ran parallel to it.

Herron asked a very relevant question, why is the TTP secret? "Anything that is that secret can't be good for the people of this country."

Unlike many observers in the media, I do not think Occupy is over. I believe, from interacting with them on and off during the year, that Occupy is evolving and will continue to be relevant. It will not just be in the streets for the most part. Occupy is a social justice movement, and like many others before it, it will wax and wane, but will not go away. Those who claim it is dead need to pay attention. Many of our future community leaders will indeed come from its ranks.

Writer, blogger, journalist, based in San Diego. Started doing this with Occupy and has grown from there. As a trained historian I was struck by Occupy, which will be considered an important moment in US History, at leaset in my opinion.
