1%?

I have been reading this tumblr site We are the 1 percent We stand with the 99 percent.

Most of these people are not the 1% (Who are the 1 percent?) Which is pretty amazing when you consider how well off some of them are. $250,000/yr doesn't put you in the top 1% and a lot of these people make less than that. Having a good job, a couple of houses and good health insurance doesn't put you in the top 1%. Being a trust fund baby and never having to work a day in your life doesn't necessarily put you in the top 1%. The top 1% are richer than that.

But reading these people's stories does give me hope for humanity. These are people who have more than they need and are willing to help others. That is the way people should be.
