  20. Warren Woodruff says:

    I remember hearing about this in the news in 2009. It was crazy how pirates could take over the ships so easily. It was also friegtening because I had family that was on a cruise ship not too far from where it was happening.

  21. Rick M. says:

    Yes. I do remember hearing about this story on the news. I couldn’t help thinking about how it must have felt to be so far from home on ship with very little hope of being rescued. I was amazed at the skill of those that help to end this event (I think that is safe to say without a spoiler).
