Most people have a boat. Sometimes it rains or gets windy and they get wet, but they’re still alright. Maybe once in a while a big enough storm knocks them out of the boat, but they’ve got a life vest and they’re tethered to the railing. With a little effort they can get right back on.
Some people don’t have a boat, but they have a good life vest. As long as the weather is fair and the wind is calm, they do pretty well. But even a little chop can make it hard to stay above water, and a storm can make it almost impossible to breathe.
Some people don’t even have a life vest. They have to tread water constantly, a daily struggle. Sometimes even that gets to be too much and they rest their muscles, sinking below the water. Sometimes they don’t come back up.
Then SOME people on the boats say to the ones in the water “just get back on your boat, it’s not that hard!”
Fuck those people.
