Just Thinking

I can't believe that at 16 year old girl is sailing around the world - by herself - non stop - never getting off her boat - no one helping her - parents letting her (though if one of my kids was to do that, I suppose I would be excited for them). Well she is. Abby Sunderland. What the heck, why not? Her brother did it last year at the age of 17 years. They are the first 2 of 7 kids.

What are the other 5 kids going to look forward to. What if the other kids get seasick, or are afraid of the dark, the ocean, being alone? Will everyone think of them as wimps? I'm just thinking ...
