Occupy Philadelphia Day 7

This is the medical headquarters tent. I've been doing an early AM shift beginning at 5 AM here. Today was the first day we had rain since the beginning of the occupation. We did lots of preparation for the wet weather and things seemed to go well. Relations with the City are good, which pleases some people and does not please others. Today the City sent a letter to the occupation listing some safety and sanitation problems that they want corrected. I've met a lot of interesting people and made some new friends. Our patients at the tents have been a mix of protesters, homeless people, and ordinary citizens. The other day I cleaned up and bandaged a teen who had a skate board accident. People are very kind and caring in occupied Philadelphia.
