    The verbs should match the subjects.

    You seem to have the idea.

    Are you asking if "everyone" should be pluralized?

    Could you please explain the difference between the following?

    Re: everyone

    All people's lives are different
    Each person's life is different

    Within the context of the statement "Everyone's lives", "All people's" is implicit.
