Like many other people around the world, I’ve become engrossed by the current plight of the 33 surviving miners at the Copiapó mining disaster in Chile.
It’s stunning to think that not only have they been down there for 17-18 days already, but that they may have to remain until Christmas.
I can’t imagine what those men have gone through, are currently going through, and have yet to go through.
As well, there’s the agony and anguish that their family and friends are now living with.
But there are also examples of hope and the human spirit that make us smile.
May the 33 miners endure until the day when they can return home.
