In eadem es navi.

Pron = In AY-ah-dehm ehs NAH-wee.

You are in the same boat.

Comment: Which boat is that? You are in the same boat that I am. I am in the same boat that you are, and this may be the most power, best kept secret among human beings. We simply have so much more in common than we have as a difference.

We do have differences. Some people are vegetarians for a variety of reasons from environmental, to a concern for animal rights, to religious requirements to cultural conformity. Some people are meat-eaters for the same variety of reasons. The food choices are different. But, at our core, we all get hungry; we all need food; we all must eat to survive; we all need healthy, nutritious food in order to thrive. Which is more significant: the kind of food we eat, or that we need food and nutritious food in order to be human?

This is one example among what I imagine to be an endless number of human experiences which in their personalities bear differences, but which at their core are distinctly "in the same boat".

The day we wake up and see this will be the day of Peace.
