Watching Chilean Miners
Sat on pins and needles last night as the first Chilean Miner, Florencio Avalos came up out of the mine. Amazing to see the footage of the brave rescuer who went DOWN with the capsule. The tension, followed by joy of the wife and kids was riveting to watch. Made me think of watching Apollo footage as a kid, hoping and praying for the best. I saw footage of miner number nine, who fell to his knees, and said a prayer.
Watched the first three come up last night, before I fell asleep. When we turned the TV on first thing this morning, ten had been rescued...............no problems so far.
I'm sure I'll be watching all day.
