"We are all equal before a wave." Laird Hamilton
None of us are born into social equality with equal or ample opportunities, being born a human is respectfully all that we have in common really, even that very understood fact is questionable depending on what you were born into. The world is full of hierarchical inequalities. Those are our social constructs. But no matter how hard the system tries to separate us from one another in spirit, mind, and in physicality, mother nature is still collectively and jointly binding us together.
Perhaps we can take solace in the very significant fact that we are all equal before a wave, a blizzard, or the heat of a desert; nature takes no prisoners. None at all. -tM
