Chile Miners

Who else is watching these miners being rescued on TV. I think it's a wonderful story. If you aren't watching it, you should definitely turn on the television. I'm not really the religious type, but it couldn't hurt to say a little prayer for these brave guys right?

Watching it too. The president should hand each a beer when they get to the surface.

The wife & I watched it last night until they got the second man up. Wow, it's nice to have something good happen like that in today's world, it was heart warming. I loved seeing how that second one to come up was so revved up and hugging EVERYONE. That was one happy dude. Chile's President came off very well in this too. From having watched how well he interacts with everyone and stayed with the workers, he seems like a very good man. If it were our president, he'd have been surrounded by Secret Service and doing nothing more than the talking head thing.

That is so true Jerry. The Chilean President was even playing guitar with a few of the miners' family members. His popularity has definitely increased within these past couple days, unlike Obama. Can't wait to see what happens when they pull up #33...

Truly inspirational. It gets me good, just thinking about it and seeing them as they come up.
