What ever happened to  the Occupy Movement? We have been in one war or another for hundreds of years, discarding our our soldiers when our government is done with them. They were the best and the bravest, serving at the whim of our country, now homeless, on the streets. A  vet and his companion cat, willing to work for food appear despondent . We have brief moments of hope when somehow the people seem united in goodness, followed by many years of broken promises to those who cared enough to be in harms way.  Politicians roll on in sleek limousines, trendy fashionistas ignore the the leftovers of a generation that went to war to preserve the rich.
