We are all in the same boat, in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.
January 16th - we’re all in the same boat
We’re all in the same boat. This expression alludes to the risks shared by passengers in a small boat at sea. We are in the same boat, but have different paddles, and perhaps we find ourselves on different rivers. Our paddles, the tools we use to move through the world, vary, as do the bodies of water, the environments, in which we find ourselves.
People who are all in the same boat must work as a team because they face the same challenges together. They use their paddles, the tools they have, to succeed by working together.
We all need each other. There is not one of us that isn’t dependent on another person for something. I need my family, the grocer, the farmers, the crews that clear the snow from the streets in winter…the list is endless. We all work together to make life better for each other.
We are all in the same boat here. We are all living each day trying to figure out how to navigate our way around our lives. The great part about all of us being in this together is that we get to share what we have learned with each other. What one can’t do, another can.
Teamwork makes the dream work. We're all in the same boat.
Learning to live together is not an option—it's a must
