I love what Occupy Wall Street does and it definitely helps the 99% of the population that struggles from paycheck to paycheck. We need more groups like yours that takes on Wall Street and the greedy wealthy who don't give a damn about those less fortunate. I have always worked with the less fortunate, homeless, ex offenders, children, the elderly. My whole adult life I have been saddled with a student loan that I will never be able to pay in my lifetime.

The federal government has gone so far as to garnish my wages and at one point I became homeless myself because I could not afford to pay rent with the garnishment. I have spent my whole career giving and working to vulnerable populations. My student loan should be forgiven. Hopefully your organization can make a real difference in the lives of those simply trying to earn a living.

Could you talk about that or go into more detail about your experience? I understand if you won't because there are enough jack asses that have the capacity to take what you say out of context or attempt to use that against you and possibly create an alternate ID to create a fictionalized account of your experience.
