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 31 years old.  I served a year in Iraq as an infantryman.  I continue to serve my country in the National Guard.  I’m a WAR VETERAN.
I have a part-time retail job where I make less than $9/hour.  I go to school full-time to earn my Bachelor’s degree.  I would get a second job if I could but there just aren’t any in my town.
I had to send my wife and son to live with my in-laws overseas because we could no longer afford to live in our 2-bedroom apartment.  I now live in a studio apartment, and they live far away.  For how long?  Who knows…
I make too much $ for food stamps but live on instant noodles.  My family is split up.  I serve my country to pay for my education, and pray I can get a job with my degree.  Then maybe I can bring my family home.  I’m battling depression…do you have to wonder why?
I AM THE 99%!!!
…and I still believe in the American Dream!
