I’m glad they managed to get out safely. As for life going forward, they have already been invited to make appearances in Spain, England and Greece, and mining entrepreneur Leonardo Farkas has promised them 5 million pesos each, about the equivalent of one year’s wages. They are also already in discussions for movie rights, book rights and TV interviews.
People are watching, cheering, and crying all over the world! As one commentator said, "They are everyone's family now!" This is a moment in time I won't forget. It's a miracle in the works! Blessings and thanks to eveyone who is helping. They are not all Chilean. Many people helped to design the rescue capsule and the drilling machinery. They are all angels!
It is so nice to see some of the men dropping to their knees in thanksgiving. And it is so nice that one of the men wants to renew his vows in the church wedding his wife always wanted. I hope the all of the men are in good physical and mental health, and that they don't suffer from post-traumatic stress. As of now, it's hugs all around!
