10 thoughts on “We’re in the same boat

  1. Absolutely right irrespective of who we are and where we’ve come from, we occupy the same space and time and should face all problems together as one society, not create more through division and oppression.

    Good quote.

  2. Yes, we’re all in the same boat; what affects one affects us all in one way or another. That’s why I appreciate this forum, to hear from different people, each with their own set of experiences to help contribute to the development of the people on that boat.

    The soul has no color, sex or human affliction and I refuse to separate myself from anyone just because they don’t look like me.

    1. Thanks Tim!! Yes I feel the same way because we are all the same, but unfortunately I’m not sure in our reality, life works that way.

      When it comes down to it, Society; religion; class and culture has segregated us instead.

  3. As human beings we all have the same amount of worth. Being rich doesn’t make you more valuable then an individual that has less monetary wealth.

    After all we all come from the same race… Human.

  4. In America, the land of many immigrants, I can truly understand what he’s saying. Being a first generation American, my mother came here from another country.

    She became a naturalized citizen in 1978, she really had to study to pass the test. Speaking English to her is a bit tough, but she gets her point across eventually (sometimes it takes her a bit to understand if the story is long).

    But yes, we agree we’re all in the same boat. Working to help our families and making a place for ourselves to call our own. She has realized the dream she had, to come here and be able to fend for herself (without the help of my father) which is truly a feat in and of itself.

    1. Ditto on your thoughts Maria. Yes we’re all in the same boat. It’s a shame not many of us recognise that fact. We’d be better off emotionally if we did.
