A Dozen Miners Freed, and Counting

by Kathryn Jean Lopez


There have been some powerful moments overnight coming from that mine site in Chile.

Like the man who declared that he had met God and the Devil down there and God won.

Like Kerry Sanders from NBC looking like a schoolboy discovering something absolutely amazing — courage and goodness and redemption and perseverance might be among them.

Sanders observed what has been obvious to everyone watching around the world: Each miner, as rescued, is being treated as if he is the first rescued miner. There’s got to be a lesson for daily life there. 

It’s a day of gratitude, not just in Chile.
