Chi Chi Chi! Le Le Le! Los Mineros De Chile!

A brief personal reaction/stream of conciousness to the “Miracle in the Desert”… and the media, of course. We’ll be back to the rocks soon. I promise.

This post should probably be relegated to Rocks in the News. I (like the rest of the world) was so transfixed by the spectacle yesterday that I was barely able to focus on my work, much less my blog. (A head cold probably didn’t help my productivity). After my post almost two months ago about the trapped miners, I do feel like I need to say something to bring closure to it all.

I had trouble not crying when it was children standing waiting for their dads and brothers- they held back none of their emotions, and really summed up the emotions that everyone else was feeling too. It was a miracle, brought about (as so many miracles are) by luck, and fortitude, and engineering, and the human spirit.
