At Queen's Park - day 48


Today I had company. Edward showed up equipped with two signs, a lawn chair and a sleeping bag. He said that he is going to stay at the Queen's Park grounds overnight. We talked and time went fast. It was raining this afternoon. I wonder what shape he is going to be in tomorrow.

I was thinking about what kind of people are coming to protest near the legislature building. So there is me - mother of an autistic child, there are also assisted living support workers, people suffering from Lyme disease, taxi drivers, people who lost their close ones to acts of violence, and today Edward is an injured worker asking for compensation. He is underpayed, weak, and sick.
