We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

I turned 60 this year.  
I didn’t have kids, but I have a gift that I can give to the world.
I begrudge no one my fate, but the goal posts keep moving.  I always worked for others and recently started working for me.  Then it all dried up.
60.  I am your grandma’s age!  I am too young to retire and we self-employed are often not that great a boss.  I work very very hard trying to find business.  There is none.
That safety net my mom has (THANK GOD) is being torn away from the rest of us.
