Beneath our virtual façades and phony personas we are all naked and flawed.

We all laugh so hard it hurts and hurt so much we have to laugh.

We all break, and we don’t always mend.

And all our stories begin and end exactly the same way.

Along the way we engage in a desperate struggle to understand why we’re here, keep our demons at bay, put some points up in the win column and have a little fun before the clock runs out.

In every way that counts, we are all the same.
