I am, without a doubt, part of the 1%. I have a home, in a beautiful place of my choosing, and I am grateful for that. Where I live, deer and rabbits are abundant. And it seems they believe what I plant in the garden is for their taking, and in a way, I like that. Its what makes me feel like, I'm am the 1%.
I am able to go out to dinner once or twice every other month, and have cable TV and the internet, both are luxuries, neither are needs, or rights. Which also makes me believe, I'm am the 1%.
I worked all my life for where I am now, and have come to understand, nothing I have was gotten soley by my own hand. All was given me, by my God..and my gratitude has shown me, I am in the 1%.
I take nothing from the Government that I didnt help earn and put away for just this time. And because I dont need them for my existance, I am in the 1%.
I never took from another, in fact it was I, who always sought to give. I support the charity of my choosing, and because I can do that, with an open heart and hand, I feel blessed to be in the 1%.
We extended our mortage for a longer time, to make it less taxing on my husbands work. It frees him up a little more, to do a little more of what he would like. And that makes us feel alot more like, the 1%.
I have been given so much in love, and in the beauty that surrounds me, that , that in itself, puts me in the 1%. I have traveled to the places I wanted to see, throughout my life. I am content with all that my life has afforded me. And that puts me right up there in the 1%.
I have the love of people who truly love me, and whom I am more than grateful for, to have them in my life. That puts me more in the 100% of those who are richer, for being in the 1%.
I never believed in taking from others, it was the memory of "better to give then to recieve". I believe that is the reason why, I am in the 1%. For its not how much money one has, its the feeling that I have all I need, that makes me a 1%er. What separates us 1%ers, is the degree of satisfaction we have achieved. Its the awareness that all our needs are met, through the grace of God. Its a willingness to make it on your own, take the risks of life, to reach the place where you want to be. And I pray, that some day, all who believe they are the 99%..will awake to the glory this country and its God, affords them. That they have nothing stopping them, but their own limitations. That the 1% cant make them part of the 1% no matter how much they give. That is a journey each person must choose to reach for themselves. For God gave everyman the ability to get beyond circumstances, if they only could see themselves, as being the Blessed children of the TOP1% IN GOD.
