What a truly selfless gesture.

Almost all drownings were silent ( a few were yellers as they just couldn't handle the wave pool)
But as a lifeguard you learn to scan the bottom of the pool, you don't look for screamers or splashers. Often kids slip under as if they were going to swim under water but in reality they can't stay above and no one notices they are not literally swimming or coming back up. And I know from a previous cruise you can not see the bottom of the pool at all. So scary!
This reminds me of when I worked in a public swimming pool as the cashier. A lady came with her young child and a boy about 4 (this was in the early 80's). She took turns carrying each child towards the deeper water and left the othe in the shallow end. When she took her own child, the 4 year old followed her (unbeknownst to her) and it wasn't until another child discovered him, was he rescued. Not sure how long he was under but seem to remember he survived without brain damage.

Seriously, people have not been negative on this board. Saying "I'm not going to pray because I don't believe in it" isn't negative. There are lots of ways to express support. I've been impressed with how positive these boards have been on this topic.

If anything "positive" came out of the horrible tragedy, is that yesterday, I signed my 4 year old daughter up for swimming lessons for the first time. It was one of those things on my list, that I probably would have never gotten around to. We sailed on the Fantasy last year, and are sailing in November. My DD has recently run off from me and into the street to see a neighbor. Does she know better? Yes. Accidents happen. Chase may be saving lives because of this. God bless him.

Some have gone too far. How would a non believer feel, if they asked for words of encouragement and strength, but posters insisted on prayers? Granted, some would take the gesture as a sign of support, but others would be offended.

So you drug it back in to this thread? WHY?

Is there some reason you wanted to repeat the trash talk?

Yes, people can be cruel. That's why I commented on how impressed I was with how supportive and kind people have been in this thread.

And as for how would non-believers feel if people insisted on praying for them? Meh. It happens all the time so most of us learn to roll with it and accept the good intentions.

From their Caring Bridge site I get the impression Chase is at Children's in Minneapolis. If that's the case then they're in great hands. I've seen first hand how amazing the doctors and nurses are there.

I agree with OCC....why drag it here???.........this has not been the tone of this thread.

Please leave the trash talk to the other threads.

Very good point. Even though that wasn't my intent, you are right.
