What a great day! Yes, I have had a wonderful day, but I am not thinking about my day. I am thinking about the incredible feat that has been watched around the world in the rescue of 33 miners, buried in a mining accident in Chile.
I can’t imagine being buried for over 2 months in such a small space. I have had claustrophobia taking an MRI when I knew it would be over in a couple minutes.
Today has been compared to the landing on the moon. I think it is a great tribute to the human spirit, to the resolve of the Chilean government, and to the faith of all involved.
As I watched the men come out of the greater than 2,000 foot shaft, one by one, I could not keep from weeping.
In a world where it is increasingly easy to become pessimistic by watching the evening news, what a refreshing event coming out such a horrible disaster. I tip my hat to 33 inspirational men and a government that never gave up on them.
