Los trienta y tres

All thirty-three miners are safely above ground. Mision cumplida – Mission accomplished.

Not going to lie, I had a few tears as I watched the final miner Luis Urzua – who was the leader, the foreman, the captain – come to the surface. He and President Sebastian Pinera congratulated each other, then stood side by side to sing the national anthem.

The rescuers and the miners did an incredible job. In less than 22 hours, 33 men were brought out of their dark cave. I am amazed and inspired, as is the world. This is a story of hope.

So … did you watch the rescues? Thoughts?
