How bad would things have to get, for you to spend all of your money so your family could cram into a small, flimsy, rubber boat with 40 other people? Imagine you canâ€™t swim, and nor can anyone else in your family. Itâ€™s night, you have no lights, and you must travel six miles across choppy seas. There is no captain. A man who has never even been on a boat will navigate. They tell you to sit on the dinghyâ€™s inflated edge with your son on your lap. Your husband must stand, and you cannot see your brother near the back, because itâ€™s so dark. How bad would things have to be, before you put your family in that boat? How bad would things have to get, before you actually felt lucky to get a spot on that boat?
