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.

When both of my parents got laid off, they lost our house because the bank foreclosed it around 2006.
I am now a high school senior with 2 disabled parents. the money that my mom (custodial guardian) gets for me will run out when I turn 18. We will not have enough money to pay our rent, because her checks do not come close to mine. I am grateful that my dad made enough money so that I get $900/month from SSDI.
I am applying to colleges this year, knowing fully that I can’t afford higher education, even with a great GPA and a great record. 
I am grateful that because of SSDI related health insurance I have received in the past to take care of 4 knee surgeries I have had in the past 3 years.
….but what happens when I lose those benefits at 18?
I am the 99%
