[QUOTE=Colston1285;171006]Sailors and their families sacrifice to take part in this career, it is a dangerous and thankless job most of the time but its something we love. Most people will never see the things we get to see and do the things we do.
I am sorry for the lives lost and I’m sure it’s tough for the families and friends. Coming with their loss will also come a big big safety overhaul, the fact that it was an American flagged ship will thrust it to the forefront that we ship owners and USCG need to implement the latest technologies in keeping sailors safe while aboard.
With your family’s loss will come saftey rules that undoubtedly safe many sea-going lives in the future. The entire industry is a tightknit one and will honor those lives lost for a long time. We will take this tragedy and learn many things from it that will help the next generations.[/QUOTE]
I agree with this statement. I do not know if it will provide much comfort knowing that your loss will save lives. I hope it does.
My heart is heavy that something this tragic can happen under these circumstances. I pray for all the families to find a way to keep moving forward to honor the lives of our brothers and sister that were lost at sea doing what they loved to do.
