Thinking of Chile Miners and Families


Some of those that have come before us, including my great-grandfather were Missouri miners. We can't help but think of the men so far beneath the surface of Chile's soil as we go about our evening. We watched the rescue of one and the rest will now follow.

  1. Only half an hour ago, here in Australia I watched the first man to come up and gave a heartfelt cheer. Praying the others come up safely too.

  2. Everyone is so thankful about this miracle. It overwhelms me how these men and their families held up during this trying time. Gives us all hope, doesn't it.

  3. My grandparents on both sides were coal miners in southern Illinois.
    We've been watching the rescue as well..they just pulled the last one out. I'm happy for them.

  4. We watched the 1st man come up. Before too long we saw the last man come up. None of us will ever know what they endured. My husband and I looked at each other and realized that he would not have fit in that tube with his broad shoulders. Then again, after so many days down there, I'm sure he would have been thinner. Our hearts go out to their families, the ones who did not sleep with worry.
