My heart goes out to Rose Bard
What a horrible ordeal to go through. Her resillience is remarkable and I want to give Rose Bard a big smile and thank her for being who she is. Not everyone would have survived this horrible accident and she did. A mother who was only thinking of her daughter and her unborn child. Women are strong when they have to be and Rose Bard showed just how strong a woman can be when she has to be. Just going out and working on those floating processors is commendable. Gone for months, away from your family, in unforseen condtitions. Only the hardy apply in the first place. Her fellow workers who saved her life need to be commended, too. Thats above and beyond the call of duty to keep a clear head to do what had to be done.If consumers have to pay a higher price for seafood to make fishing safe then so be it. Whatever it takes its well worth it. And I hope Rose makes a full recovery and goes on to a fuller life, with enough monetary compensation, to never have to work again.
