There are times in life when it doesn’t matter where you come from, what you look like, or what you do – we are connected.

I love the times when I look around and think we are all the same here, right now, in our shared experience. It creates a level playing field. So it is when we rally for a cause, in a circle at a support group meeting, or waiting in a paper gown for a mammogram. We are all the same when sitting in the emergency ward, lying on a bed going into surgery or waiting in a doctor’s office with a sick child.

We are all the same, holding our sick pet at the vet or waiting in a dark airport for a delayed flight. Yet, in those times, we are connected by our shared experiences.

Share your experience where you have felt the same and where you are in that moment is the same as everyone around you.
