Ten Rescued so Far

Ten of the 33 Chilean miners* who have been trapped under ground for 69 days have been rescued. What a lovely thing to wake up to.  I can't even imagine everything they have had to endure after being trapped for over two months, or the myriad emotions they must be feeling now (or the horror of being the LAST ONE), but I am so thrilled for them, for their families, for the entire country of Chile, because they never gave up.  And they are going to the hospital for observation and then going home.

Welcome back, gentlemen!

*On a side note, I know people who were consulted on how to ensure the air the miners have been breathing remained safe, so that practically makes me a celebrity!
