Concerning the teen sailor, mind your own business

16 year old Abby Sunderland a seasoned experienced sailor attempted to sail around the earth alone. While in the Indian Ocean a thirty foot waive knocked down her ship’s mask and ability to communicate.

Ms. Sunderland was located and is safe and well. With this the busy-bodies, nanny types are question the parents for allowing Abby to sail the world alone. To these busy-bodies: mind your own business!

Ms. Sunderland is an accomplished sailor and went through numerous shorter lone trips to prepare for this one. Her parents have confidence in her, and ends the discussion. Another show-stopper: Ms. Sunderland was located safe and in good condition. How many older sailors could have accomplished the same?

How many other sailors after being hit with a thirty food wave would have not had the same happen to their ship’s mask and communications?

In many states and around the world being 16 years old is the age of consent. Many of these same self appointed busy bodies would be the first to say a 12 year old is entitled to have an abortion without parental consent because it is a woman’s body and her right to choose.

Well Ms. Sunderland used that choice and made the decision to take her body not to an abortion clinic but on a ship to sail around the world. Now shut up you busy bodies.
