    Good afternoon, bikramsingh.

    (1) I think that your sentence is find from a grammatical viewpoint.

    (a) I would just add "that" after "are."

    (b) I put a period after "independently."

    (c) I would say "we will all reach."

    (2) As to the thought of your statement, I am sad to say that it reflects something very true about life.

    Have a nice day!

    Is it necessary to put "that" after "are" or is the sentence correct even without it?

    Hi bikramsingh, "that" is optional in your sentence. You should, however, put a full stop (period) at the end as the parser pointed out.
