The current 5 million 99er are the first victims of the recession. Laid off at the beginning, they have not only lost their Unemployment Insurance, but often their homes, cars, retirement savings, and their hope. They are not counted in the offical numbers any more, and are not included in the extension of benefits being debated in Congress. There will be 4 million more 99ers in the next few months. Join in a vigil of hope for those who are suffering in this recession. Bring a candle.
