At 21 years old, I am…
-One semester from graduating college with a degree no one seems to hire
-In massive debt because of that once “dream degree”
-About to become a mother to a baby whose illness has gotten us booted off government health insurance…at 9 months pregnant…
-Scared for our future
-I am the 99%-
Just let the enormity of what’s going on here slowly sink in.

I saw some Boston fans helping out with the post-riot cleanup downtown, and I was so touched. I am aching and sore from scrubbing walls for four hours, but I am so glad that I got to experience the beauty of Vancouver, including the love and solidarity of those who wanted to preserve it… whether inhabitants or not.
