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 am a 47 year old single parent of 5 kids ranging in age from 11 to 30.  My children are owed 37,000.00 in child support and the state of MD doesn’t care. I have health insurance because I have health issues but cannot afford it for my 2 youngest children. 
I cannot pay my mortgage and owe the electric company over 6000.00. I have many medical bills for my children because I take them to the ER when they need to see a doctor. 
I can’t afford to feed everyone so I pretend I’m not hungry so the kids can eat. 
I AM THE 99 % and it makes me sad that my children will always be too.
