Chilean Miners Stand Together
In the bustling blue-collar town of Copiapo, the hospital is surrounded. People hold vigil this time not hoping for a miracle at the mine, but instead hoping for a sightline. Any glimpse of a miner/hero brings smiles to faces and cheers to the air. Men, women and children from this town rarely seen in the news across Chile, gather on wonderment as their men have become international heroes.
All around us are news crews. People staked out waiting for any news or comment. Right now three of the miners have been released and we are told 10 more could be out in the coming hours. Each time one emerges, the crush of media and people is astounding to me. This truly is still being watched by so many, with so many questions about the details of 69 days underground.
