Victory observed, sorrow alone, disasters together, such an odd state of affairs. In triumph we shine above, lauded by admirers. In despair we feel alone, even if surrounded by friends. When many suffer or fear, we band together. Perhaps it would be better if we always did. As if life is one prolonged natural disaster and we need each other to make it through. Instead we build walls and differentiate between you and me, and us and them, and... other. Until we're all - all alone.
