OHMYGODDESS! I, along with millions of other people, have been watching news reports off and on all day at the office and now here at home this evening. I just watched miner 31 rescued. The rescue team above-ground and below-ground have got it down to a science now and the speed of the rescue has increased enormously since I saw the very first one last night, shortly after 10:00 p.m. local time. Wow - incredible. It's just incredible watching it. I know it is real, I know it is live, and yet - there is something so 'otherworld' about what I see happening on the screen.
Soon everyone that is still in the mine space below will be out - including five rescue workers who went down intermittently starting with the first one last night.
For 24 hours, the world was united in willing a successful rescue of those miners and the men who went down into that mine to help.
