(CBS) - We just love it when a group of people can put themselves in the shoes of others.
That's why we heart a new blog called "We are the 1 percent. We stand with the 99 percent." Just like the previous blogs that have popped up, this one speaks for the unique group of individuals who were lucky enough to be born rich.
"My family doesn't need our second home. My friends really badly need healthcare. I want EVERYONE I love to have enough! I will continue to fight for wealth redistribution. I am the 1%. I stand with the 99%," one of the captions said.
There's something very powerful about a collection of photographs with earnest words of Americans in support of other fellow patriots, from coast to coast. Regardless of the side of the wealth distribution scale you stand in, it's so nice to see people communicating in a positive way, isn't it?
The Occupy Walls Street movement is using social media in ways that are similar to the Middle East protests last spring. Aside from the obvious Twitter and Facebook accounts, protesters have posted YouTube videos, used meetup groups and, of course, created Tumblr blogs.
