  • I'm not claustrophobic at all, but tell ya what, that would be a Willy of a ride! I've had more "happy" goose pimples watching this - still watching! #3 is coming up now. :) So cool!!! "GOOD NEWS" on the news for a change - how great is that!!!

  • I just pray they get all of them out with no snags and the two rescuers that went down to help. I also pray they are all okay, lots to see on how they do in the days to come health wise, once they are all out and safe. Kudos to all of those whom have kept on site and devising this plan. Just a truly amazing story of survival and what people can over come.
  • I couldn't agree more Tamtam. Prayers and fingers staying crossed. The best of the best put this whole thing together to make it work. I'm sure the future movie for this will be a happy ending tear jerker? Positive thoughts...positive prayers....positive wishes!!!

    I'm not major religious, but that was pretty heart hitting. :) The rocks... At first I didn't understand what that was all about, as the hubby had the volume down. I think we are just starting to see the really cool stuff that hopefully will come out of this. :)

    They now have 9 miners out and I have been up all night watching this. I cant turn the tv off and go to sleep. I know I cant possibly make it to the 33rd miner but I cant sleep, I want to watch all of it! This is a miracle and it is good to see something on tv other then violence. God bless the men and their families

  • will be thew first thing they want even before seeingt family?

    Shower!!!
  • Ok, I'll admitt. I'm glued to the TV.

    Puts so much of life in perspective!

    Did you catch the interview last night with the
    American "driller" whose team was the first to drill through to the miners? The rescue effort had 3 different sites going. A plan A, B, and C if you will. As soon as his work was complete he left. He did not want the focus on him as a hero.

    So many different stories within a story going on there!
  • How those men survived.
    Give credit to the foreman down there who took charge and rationed the meals, and gave everyone a little job to do to keep them busy so their minds would'nt think the worst.

    And like Frog said the Driller from Denver who broke thru. He is still in Chile but went to a different city to watch on t.v. so the people of Chile could have their day. =D>
  • They just broke into Hell's Kitchen, *all* 33 are now out!! Wow, this is what "GOOD" news looks like? I want more! I'm so happy this came to a safe resolution for those guys and their families. Too cool!!! <:P

  • ....to have a "good" news story! What an experience for those men, and so nice that Chile had the support of so many around the world.
