I was in tears last night as I watched the Chilean mine workers being rescued from their underground “home” where they had been trapped in for more than 2 months. The faces of the men as they rose to the surface, the jubilant faces of all the rescue workers as one by one the men came up, the happy tears shed by the families and friends…it all just hit me in the gut. I sat on the coach, silent tears running down my face, a stupid grin on my face as I followed the updates on CNN.
This is a true testament of human perseverance. A true test of human strength, not just physically but mentally and spiritually as well.
