Message In A Bottle Arrives after 76 Years At Sea!


Taking a stroll on the beach in New Zealand, you never know what you might find.

In the true spirit of adventure, Geoff Flood and his son discovered this message in a bottle.

And imagine their surprise to discover it was 76 years old!

[Geoff Flood, Bottle Finder]:
"Who knows where it's been. How many times around the world, you just wouldn't know, would you?"

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

While sailing in the out islands of the Bahamas a few years ago my kids did the note in a bottle thing. We got a response from a lady a few hundred miles away. The kids' minds were blown.

Your story is amazing, while such thoughtful points arise from it.

There is something legendary about a message in a bottle. It goes to the grain of many literary works. It is hope out of hopelessness for those who think that message will not arrive or be ignored.
