Point is, if she was, no one would sign up. I didn't think it was that hard to connect the dots. Another way to put it, if she was forced to go some people would be calling it suicide. But b/c she blissfully unaware "it's an adventure!" The only people who aren't scared for this child in the open sea are those who have not been in it.

Can she build a jury rig to get herself home? Or is her back up plan to push the easy button when things get tough? I hope people come to their senses and start acting like parents again, before she leaves port.
