To make the distinction of where somebody boarded, be it, Civitavecchia, or, the originating port, makes no sense. The length of time someone was on board, has nothing do do with anything.
I do agree we have no conception of the level of anyones pain and suffering. Someone who was able to get off swiflty, vs someone who may have been separated from a loved one...another one jumping onto the sea, scared out of their minds, vs another who had the ablilty to get into a boat...each is impacted....they deserve to feel how they do, without criticism.
Trip, with her book & tea!
