We will be marching all the way to College Park tonight so that we can arrive to DC earlier in the day tomorrow. Sorry to anyone this has inconvenienced but the decision was very important because it greatly increases our visibility. Thank you all for your patience on this incredible journey.

    Do you have a place to stay? Do you need anything? I’d love to help any way that I can!

  • Barbara Rathmann

    I LOVE YOU ALL!!!! Sleep tight, dry, and warm tonight. Over 30 miles in one day… you all are superhuman.

    Hope the danishes helped lift your spirits and fill your bellies 🙂

    Thank you making a highly visible, creative and hard earned effort to draw attention to the occupy movement. and CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  • Julia

    I saw you all today as you entered College Park, just as you crossed the highway. You give me hope. Good luck in DC.

  • ASpake

    What do you need between College Park and DC? Does anyone need “Sag wagon services?”

  • Barbara Rathmann

    Glad to see that there is another marcher’s mom here, too. Last two weeks we have been following your every word, every post to see if our children and the rest of the “Follow the Highway family” are doing okay. Stay safe. Stay warm. Stay focused. Love you guys!

    Stay strong. Many of us across the country are watching and praying for you all. You march for me, you march for my children and grandchildren….you march for us all.

  • Carolyn McGrath

    Much love from Princeton, NJ!!!! It was an honor to march with you from our town to Trenton and to have shared this small part of your larger journey. We have followed you all the way (in spirit) and wish we could be there with hugs (and ginger candies) to welcome you at the end of your trek today. Bravo! Thank you for making us so so proud!

    I’m in college Park and would like to join your walk into DC. Are you going down route 1 or down 212?

  • voxpopuli2012

    I think about President Washington riding this path in 1800. He served his Presidency in New York City, living at point that is now the Manhattan foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. He did not have to contend with trucks and noise on his trip 211 years ago, and had the luxury of making it on horseback! When you get to McPherson Square notice the statue of McPherson on horseback, like Washington. What a luxury to have a horse!

    Know that your message is getting out there,. The truth is being told. You are the true Patriots of our time.

  • Magen Eller

    I admire your tenacity and dedication! THANK YOU!

  • Alice L. Sullivan

    By now you have reached your destination. You know that the super committee wasn’t so super; but I know that your trip was super super. You’ve help bring awareness and hope to many along your path and to many who have followed you on your journey. You have experiences you will always treasure and I’m sure a close bond with your fellow travelers.

    Thank you. Much love and future success. You put the “P” in Patriot. Wishing you all health and peace.

    @ the moms of marchers who have posted: your kids are awesome!!! i drove down today to meet them at rhode island metro station to offer them lunch…they were full of love, gratitude and a great energy surrounded them. the metro station is in dc…so, they should be where they were going now or really soon (i am sonot a dc person)…what an incredible demonstration of positive action they are!!! you must be so proud of them.
    (look for them on channel 9 news dc/ and there was also a reporter from the washingtonpost …i do not know any of the marchers, so i do not know who was speaking to the press…..
    have a lovely rest of your day!
    (oh, i now know garth…love him!!)

  • OlaM

    You are amazing and such an inspiration. I wish you the best of luck and hope to attend a GA while you are here in DC!!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! TEAM OWS! Thank you for all your courage!

  • Lori Jane Nelson

    Greetings to Barbara, and any other MOMs here (mothers-of-marchers)!
    I am relieved to know that they all have a place to sleep tonight, and look forward to following the action tomorrow. Prayers for safety and peace for all our marching children. Hoping that all of you not currently able to hug your children have someone else to hug while you wait to see them again, or at least a hand to hold as tomorrow’s action unfolds.

  • helen

    i am so proud of all of you. that was never going to be an easy journey but the fact was that you kept going while the the powers that be attacked the occupy movement from every angle they could find. sorry you lost liberty square but we are bigger than that now.

  • Barbara Rathmann

    Just found the C-Span link for the press conference that was held on Tuesday. Interestesting how the marchers go through their direct democracy process during their meetings. Takes a little getting used to and it appeared the press would agree. But after a while you get caught up in the rhythm. It was great to see and hear the marchers sound so positive. So proud of my son (Michael Glazer) as I’m sure all the other MOMs (mothers of marchers) are of their children. Glad they are safe and look pretty good for having gone through what they did the last 2 weeks. You all should be so proud of yourselves. Stay warm, stay safe, stay focused. (Did you give each other that hug when you go to DC??

    We need a larger turnout, and a push against Black Friday propaganda, as such large “holiday” spending days only seem to benefit the 1%… They depend on American sheep-le to go in droves and help pad their bottom lines. Protest Black Friday activities, as it reinforces their ability to keep the 99% in debt and under their thumb! Sit out Black Friday and show them we will NOT support the status quo!

  • Jonathan

    I fully support the OWS march on Washington… Wall Street doesn’t care and won’t give up the cash cow they’ve found in Washington, and the misappropriation of taxpayer dollars to pad their wallets. Washington needs to see We The People will not stand for the status quo! They work for us, they exist because of the power we invest in them, and they can be removed if they ignore the needs of the people.

    Stand up for the people!
    Stop the corporate buyout of Washington!
    We want our future now, not empty promises!

    We The People, for Real Change

  • Lori Jane Nelson

    (Jonathan, I hear you–we are going local biz this year for any gift-giving. We are trying to be thoughtful about transitioning bank and mortgage dealings to local biz.)

    Having an offspring in Occupy has been very instructive to me, and led to me sharing information with others in my age-group and work circles. I’m a teacher, and have taught my students to use some of the GA hand-signals to create a smoother-running classroom. Thank you, Occupy, for enlightening many, many more than the many you encountered on your march. The last tweets seemed a bit dis-heartened. I like to think that the lack of an organized, huge action has preserved your freedom to act another day. Perhaps the weather was a gift. Recoup, recover, and know that you have made a powerful difference. No one who has followed your progress and paid attention to your process can claim to be the same as they were before you started.


    My brother suggested I would possibly like this website.

    He was totally right. This post actually made my day.
    You can not believe simply how so much time I had spent for this information!

    Before the discovery of modern medicines, ginger was used as homemade remedies.
    These substances both have anti-inflammatory properties which
    assist the functions of your cells throughout the body.
    Ginger roots can be peeled, sliced and simmered in water and
    sugar to make a delicious candied-ginger treat.
