How rare it is to go to bed with a smile on my face and wake up the same way.
As the whole world watches, the first of the 33 trapped Chilean miners made his way to the surface just after midnight.
A weary world somehow needed this, a story of the best of humanity. In a world where so much is wrong, this is so right.
Who doesn't love this story? Who doesn't rejoice with these people half a planet away? I believe that every now and then we need a reminder that we as humans are all connected. Consider this your wake up call this morning.
I know that no matter how my day goes today, I will go about my business with a smile on my face. I know that whatever I go through will pale in comparison to what these brave men and their families have gone through for over two months. I know that I will never think of Chile in the same way again.
FINALLY, something to cheer about in this old, tired world. Blessings to those miners, their families, and the rescuers. You've made this jaded chick believe just a little more.
