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 19 years old and I can’t find a job. If I had a penny for every time I heard that….I was a A student and managed to get into 5 colleges, only to receive no financial help whatsoever even though my dad is a single parent who makes (if were lucky) $20,000 a year after taxes. My dream as to be a horse trainer so I could work with/study the wild horses, so much for that. I have been taking care of my 3 sisters since I was 9 years old when my parents divorced. My mother owes thousands of dollars in child support but ran of to Canada so she doesn’t have to pay. I have 4 infected/impacted wisdom teeth that have needed to be removed since January 2011. I need  between $8000 and $10,000 to have it done and the cost of renting a hospital room/equipment goes up every day. I am so tired of being in pain all the time, I truly would sell my soul for a job right now. All my life money has always been scarce but this is just unbelievable and beyond unfair to all the people who are in similar situations! I can’t see a way out and I’m so frustrated and angry with what’s going on in this country.I  am the  99% ocupywallst.org
