Experience Occupy Wall Street first hand

This link leads to a first hand account, with pictures, of the Occupy Wall Street movement, as reported by Eric Albert, a New York native and friend.  When I asked him if I could post this on my blog, he agreed, but pointed me to an article written by a reporter that he thought was better.  I'll link to that article at the bottom, and it is very good, but I like my friend's report.  It's refreshing to read an account from a regular guy who's walking through a crowd, as opposed to a reporter who's looking for a story.

Eric Albert's essay:
