To My Sister
I would just like to dedicate this post to my sister, Lily. While I recognize the content is a little out of place, this is important to me. Wednesday morning, February 17th Lily and her shipmate's Tall Ship sank 300 miles off the coast of Brazil. In a ship that has circumnavigated the world and traveled hundreds of miles through rough seas this was the last event these students and crew could have expected. In life rafts my sister and her crew awaited rescue for 38 hours and were finally picked up by a passing chinese freighter heading to Argentina's coast. It was Saturday February 20th when the kids reached land. Extremely exhausted and ready to come home, please keep my sister in your thoughts.
