Not The Way You Want To Spend A Holiday
It's scary how quickly this ship went under after hitting a reef. I was going to make a few comments, but since there's a chance that two people, a father and child, may not have survived, I'll shut it. I just hope they made it.
What's amazing is how the laws of the Sea work so well. It's one of the few places in this world where everyone has an obligation to rescue anyone in trouble on the ocean. Whether it's a shrimp boat, a cruise ship, or a sub, every vessel within sailing distance is required to drop whatever they're doing and rush to whoever needs help. And everyone does it without question.
I wish the rest of the world worked this way.

Totally agree with your wish in the last sentence! Probably not in our lifetime... :(12:21 PM
