Dear World, About That Boat…


Dear World,

About that boat.

It’s true, we’re not all in the same boat.

But we’re all in the same storm.

Sure a bigger boat with better equipment may make this a far easier ride but the thing is…

Nobody’s boat has been tested like this before.

We really don’t know if the more expensive, shinier boat with endless resources will weather this storm better at all.

Maybe it’s the little, beaten-up but more experienced boats that will actually see this thing out safely.

After all, those little boats have been weathering storms forever, they know what it’s like to toss and turn and wonder if the next wave will be the one that turns them upside down.

Maybe the bigger boats are so believing in their fortitude that when this killer wave does come, they wont be ready at all.


Anyway, it really shouldn’t matter.

If your boat gets into trouble you may just need the help of that bigger boat.

We are not all in the same boat my friend, but we are all in the same storm.

And it’s like nothing we have seen before.

If your boat is running into trouble on this crazy, choppy sea. Send out a flare.

We really are all in this together.

And we all want to make it through.

To a brighter, calmer day.

From my little boat to yours,

Stay watertight my friend.

We got this.
