In Zuccotti Park

The double usage of the root "ecos" in this vignette at Occupy Wall Street reminds me that the root is Greek for home. That's all the Greek I know, maybe all I need to know...I was there with my daughter last night, she jumped in and insisted on painting a sign which read "Take Care of Earth," and tromped around carrying it high over her head. I love the fact that she didn't write "the" before "earth." It's more like when you say "give this to mom," you don't say "give this to the mom."
