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 24 years-old… and I am one of the very lucky ones. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with skin cancer, and because I was on the truly fortunate ones, I was able to receive medical treatment that I know millions in this country alone cannot afford to have when they’re sick and scared, in pain and in need. On January 4th of this year, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Once again, the fact that I am one of the very luckiest never escapes my mind or my heart. Fortunately, I am still covered under my parents’ health care plan for the next two years. Because of this blessing, I’ve been able to receive treatments, surgeries, and the necessary medications I need to not only survive but to live so that I can fight not only chronic illness but far more nefarious, demoralizing evils like chronic racism, intolerance, greed, corruption, and apathy. 
I am a first-generation Palestinian-American, and I will ALWAYS stand with the 99% fighting tirelessly against injustice on all fronts. I stand with my tireless comrades resisting and galvanizing to bring about REAL change! They are my heroes who instill real hope in me and will ultimately change the world. So keep fighting dear comrades!
I believe in hope…
I believe that the blood, tears, patient suffering, and steadfast struggle of the 99% all over the world will stand the test of time and achieve all that is just and moral. 
Occupy everything and don’t ever remain silent in the face of injustice anywhere it exists! 
I am the 99 percent.
