"A United States aircrew helped rescue three stranded men from a deserted Pacific island after the sailors used palm fronds to spell the word "help" and waved their lifejackets at rescuers.
A Navy P-8 aircrew based out of Japan and vessels had been searching for the men, reported missing after failing to arrive in their 19-foot craft at the island of Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) to catch an early morning flight on Monday.
Bulk carriers Brilliant Jupiter and Ten Yu Maru were also engaged, conducting 17 hours of search across nearly 300 kilometres of ocean."

How many people in the modern world are crying out for help, or feel as though they are drowning emotionally right now?
Probably a lot more than we care to think.
Even the planet itself seems to be calling for help right now.
