The story about the rescue of the miners in Chile is really one of the best, nicest, happiest things I’ve heard on the news in quite a while. A great story of human perseverance, effort, compassion, and ingenuity combining to save lives and reunite families. Congratulations to the rescued miners and their families for enduring a terrible seventy days, congratulations to the engineers and workers who pulled off the rescues. Not every story like this ends well; so let’s enjoy it when we get a happy ending like this.
