I cannot believe how much these men are continuously tested and it is even more amazing to see how strong these men are in being able to endure such harsh conditions. If I had to undergo a journey that consisted of limited food, cold weather, deteriorating health, and not stepping foot on land for over a year, I probably would have died after the first month. It makes you rethink life and your mindset on it. When the men see Elephant island, they are thrilled and just can’t wait to step foot on land. Here I am everyday complaining about such little things and expecting so much. These men are truly inspiring. Also, the fact that they told the man who was losing his feet to gangrene that he could step foot on the island first was very considerate and noble.
