The world breathed a sigh of relief this past Wednesday after all 33 men trapped in the Chilean mine collapse were rescued and brought to the surface. It really puts into perspective the different jobs we take and the possible dangers involved. Each miner knew the danger their job entailed but decided to work in the field despite the fact. Safety precautions are taken and emergency plans are constructed but the hope is to never have to implement them. After the initial collapse, the miners organized themselves and made a 2-day emergency food supply last more than 2 weeks while waiting for contact from the surface. Their discipline and hope is commendable as well as admirable. Not only does that take a strong person, it also takes a strong will. Like Ralph Waldo Emerson said though, "we acquire the strength we have overcome." For everything these miners have gone though, they will be remembered for their strength and perseverance.
