Default Chilean miners being rescued

Watching it live. What an emotional time. The people of Chile aren't the only ones affected. Both my wife and I are all welling up and sniffling something fierce here.

Welcome home boys!

It's really a good news. Good to know. Thanks.

...........

Good news are too few.

There are many people around the world still suffering, how sad. Last month I donated 60% of my monthy salary for 3 places. It comforted me somewhat, but I still can't help feeling depressed.

It's said that 'the end of the world' is not going to happen in a certain moment, but a sustained period. It seems, this is it. It's happening.

Or, human is insignificant by nature. Lives, or any civilizations, are only a tiny part of a fraction of a .... who knows what.

Friends, I remember "Das Wunder von Lengede" ("The miracle of Lengede"), a similar situation, in Germany in the 60s. You can bet your last penny on my not leaving the TV today.

Last miner to the surface, now just the remaining (5?) rescuers to bring up.

I hope the last one remembers to turn out the lights.

Those guys (rescuers) have got some bottle to go down there. They've got my admiration. I profoundly wish they'd get out quick, they're making me nervous. Good job though.

What makes me feel ashamed about having watched it: it was a jolly good show, congrats - but within a week that TV hype will be forgotten and safety standards in mines all around the world will remain the same.
Hell, Ukrainia isnīt too far from here - but another 50 dead miners in another explosion are just worth two lines on page five of the newspaper, if as much as that.
Shame.
