'No one gets to choose where he or she is born. Australians are not better than anyone else for the simple fact of having been born in Australia, or having immigrated here through ‘normal’ channels, just lucky. When previously asked to share that luck with those less fortunate – refugees from World War II, Vietnamese boat people – we have not always been gracious about it...To understand how we got here, and how Boy Overboard came about, we need to travel back to the start of the twenty-first century – and, indeed, a few years before that.' - Linda Jaivin
