Because if the EU could get the prize, Sea Rescue (and Greta) have to get it. (And Europe should return it, hanging it's head in shame.)
I wonder how much despair must have solidified inside someone who decides for whatever reason to leave home, family and friends to embark on an uncertain journey to another country, knowing they may die and never make it.
I wonder how much more intense does this despair need to be to enter an unsafe boat together with friends, family, beloved, children, as the only viable option to cross over to a probably better life, knowing how many before have not made it, were refused entry or deported "back".
Some of them are unbelievably lucky, they indeed do reach the other shore on their own account. Others are found and rescued, taken on board of a ship. It's been reported that some of those ships cruising the seas run by volunteers working for self organized rescue network organisations have saved more than 10.000 people during their period of service. Each. That's an impressive number of people.
But, how many did they miss?
I imagine that anyone opposing these rescues and refusing even the most basic assistance to those in dire need to be obliged to the following scenario: The sea retracts and all those people who did not make it, who drowned, died, assemble and form a lane. Those opposing the rescues will need to walk that lane of dead. Young, old, childen, babies. And when they have reached the other shore they will need to look the surviving beloved in the eyes.
No words are to be spoken.
