My name is Kelly Schomburg, I’m the girl with the red hair in these pictures. I was protesting at the Occupy Wall Street march yesterday when I and several other women were sprayed with mace and subsequently arrested. Many have already seen the video, which has been spreading like wildfire over twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other video feeds, along with hundreds of other photos and videos. This is my recount of what happened.
I woke up…
and said goodmorning, not to anyone, but everything. There is nothing more peaceful than a walk through the woods, feeling the life in every plant, tree - even the ground and air. Its hard to think of all the negativity in this world when surrounded by such beauty. I think this might be what I’ll do later.
We are all one, the earth is our Mother - feel it - appreciate it - understand it - and in this understanding you will find peace.
Blessed Be <3
