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 sat on the sidelines for too many years
Thinking that my vote counted for something
That the system could be changed from within
Meanwhile corruption and greed in government
Has left the American people in dire need
Need of Healthcare – Need of Jobs
Need of Justice – Need of Accountability
I consider myself very lucky that I have been
Able to support my family with my wife and I
Both working multiple jobs as freelancers
Our children are healthy and well fed
Our daughter is in college on a scholarship
We live from check to check creatively
Our lives could be much worse
I can no longer sit on the sidelines as the 99%
Loses it’s future – it’s hope – it’s freedoms
I am the 99%
Now on the front lines of   www.occupywallst.org
