First let me say, "way to go rescue team". What an amazing accomplishment to bring the miners to the surface. I imagine everyone is tired, stinky, and needs a good meal.
Second. I've been way too addicted to this story. I stayed up well past midnight watching the initial rescues, crying. At work, I continually checked cnn.com to see the status ticker. I read all the bios, studied their faces, wiped some more tears and prayed. Oh I prayed. Today at work we had a celebration lunch. I walked into the room, and there were about three men of Hispanic descent wearing Fire Retardant Clothing similar to the ones the guys are wearing in Chile. I had to take a double take because I wanted to hug them and say "THANK GOD YOU'RE ALIVE".
Che-Che-Che lay-lay-lay! Way to go Chile! I'm proud of you - thank GOD each of you are alive. I'm proud of NASA, of all the rescuers who VOLUNTEERED to save the men.
Also - have you heard the story about the married miner whose wife found out about his mistress when both women showed up at Camp Hope?!?!? The mistress was there when he surfaced. Gotta love a love triangle.
This story has taught us that ANYTHING is possible. Never ever give up!
