I am so sad for the parents of the children killed in Connecticut this morning! I can't even imagine the heartache. More proof of the fact that terrible things can happen anywhere, anytime. 

I have had a few people really worried that our sailing adventure will not be safe, and have even told me they think we will not come back alive. I have tried to mention bad things can happen anywhere, and that we will try to be as prepared as possible. At times I have worried myself that it could be dangerous, and of course I would never want to endanger my children. Now, more then ever, I am convinced that we should be living life to the fullest while we can.
