I'm sure just like me most of you have been glued to the TV over the past couple of day, if not months, to see the latest on the 33 Chilean mienrs trapped 2,300 feet or 730 meters underground. And I'm sure just like me all of you couldn't help but shed a few tears of joy as they reached the surface and huged their families and loved ones.
I don't know about you but the leassons learned from these people are amazing. First of all that the last thing you should lose is hope because even in the most dire of situations there is always someone out there taking care of us. Second, it is very important to rely on those that have experince and are level headed to deal with the most difficult situations... we have to let them do their jobs. Finally, when we all leave aside our personal interests and start contributing to the common good no matter what: we receive a reward and a few "good Karma points" for the future.
As a last thought, I hope that those who lead each and everyone of our countries learn the lessons taught by the Chileans in which they made a commitment that people comes before political interests and money...
Wishing all of you an great and inspiring day!
I got teary following this amazing story! What testament to hope (a beautiful thing) and their ability to think as a collective group, instead of just individual persons/themselves! Thanks for the lovely reminder.ReplyDelete

Your last thought is so true! Well said! I cried right along with that little boy when they brought up his dad, the first miner to be released. Bless everyone who worked to bring them all home safely.ReplyDelete
This was all so amazing. I'm still moved to tears just thinking about it. I remember when they first said they might not get those miners out until Christmas; I'm so glad they were able to rescue them sooner. Just shows what the world can do when we all come together. Happy weekend, Elie.ReplyDelete
I discovered your blog through Brandi's site...and I'm so glad I did! this post is so inspiring, i almost cried when I watched the news. So glad they made it out. Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
It is so amazing that these men were saved! I cannot even imagine being those men's families...it must be absolutely amazing to have them back! Though I do think it would be hard to cope with normal life after such a hard time.ReplyDelete
