MIRACLE AT SEA
Adrift in the Pacific for five months in a tiny boat, five fishermen reached the limits of human endurance. This is their story.
At the point of despair, one wrote a farewell message:
To My Beloved Wife,
The rainwater that we had is about used up. We have no food. We have suffered so much that I believe, with death, God will finally allow us to rest….
I only know one thing—that if it’s possible to love after life, I will love you….
I no longer have the strength to go on.
But they did go on, for three more months.
