Poverty

All in the same boat??

I owe this thought to a young lady on the Jeremy Vine Show (I don’t remember her name).

We are not in the same boat, but we are in the same storm! Some are cruising in their luxury yachts, some are being tossed around in rickety rowing boats.

We are finding self isolating comparatively easy but we are aware that many people on their own are lonely. We can enjoy the garden and the local countryside but people trapped in flats in cities don’t have the same. Our pension is consistent but many are suffering financially. And all these things fade into insignificance when we remember those who are grieving the loss of loved ones.

So we are not all in the same boat, but we are in the same storm.
