Patti Smith At Riverside Church: 'People Have The Power'

The great Patti Smith moved us all to tears with her beautiful poem in honor of Martin Luther King and in Occupy Wall Street Solidarity during the #J15 Candlelight Vigil at Riverside Church tonight, reminding us that it is the people who have the power.

Via Occupy Wall Street, and Saturday's Candlelight Vigil:

"The people have the power to redeem the work of fools"

The great Patti Smith moved us all to tears with her beautiful poem in honor of Martin Luther King and in Occupy Wall Street Solidarity during the #J15 Candlelight Vigil at Riverside Church tonight, reminding us that it is the people who have the power. Thank you Patti and thank you for donating that beautiful tent with the colored letters for The People's Library!

With messages from Russell Simmons, Yoko Ono and so many more to a packed house it was an amazing night of hope.
