We are all navigating a storm, but not in the same boat

*The waves may capsize yours while gently rocking mine*

Or vice versa ...

*For some, quarantine is a moment of reflection, of re-connection. Easy, in flip flops, with a glass of whiskey in hand*

For others, this is a desperate crisis !

*Some experience it as loneliness and isolation*

Others a time of reconnection with family and friends

*Some lament the absence of a brand they love*

Others worry about bread for the weekend, or if the noodles will last a few more days

*Some work in their "home office" *

Others have lost their homes and offices

*We criticize those who break the quarantine*

But some have no choice, they have to pay the bills.

*Others choose to escape. To their country homes or favorite vacation destinations*

Some have experienced the virus, some have already lost someone from it, some are not sure their loved ones are going to make it

*And yet there are some who don't even believe this is a big deal*

Many are getting vaccinated. Some have faith in God and miracles. Others lack faith in science

*Some think the storm is passing, others think the worst is yet to come*

So, friends, we are not in the same boat. We are in the same storm. How we perceive it depends on the boat we are on

*And when the storm passes, each of us will emerge, in our own way. Some stronger, some unscathed, some scarred, some on a stretcher, and some will not make it.*

It is very important to see beyond our own experience

*See beyond our politics, beyond religion, beyond race, beyond the nose on our faces*

*Do not judge the good life of one nor condemn the choices of the other*

Let us not judge the one who lacks, nor the one with possessions

*We are all simply on different boats*

Let’s navigate our routes with respect, empathy and responsibility
