We Are Humans After All

The whole word is watching, live. I am watching. This is the ongoing rescue of the Chilean miners, one by one, and I am struck with deep, inward emotions. I feel the anxiety, the joy, and the relief seen in the faces of the family members as their loved ones slowly emerge from the capsule. Their eyes tell it all. Can any of us even imagine what they really went through these past 69 days? How would we cope as we awaited the news that the miners were actually alive, but they would not be rescued for two or possibly three months?

Truly, everyone involved in this initial calamity are survivors. The miners never lost hope, and worked as a team underground both physically and spiritually. I am sure each of them have their own personal story to tell about strength, endurance, and courage.

 As I look at the expression on the face of the wife, the mother, the father, and the child, I realize an important point. We, as people, may look somewhat different on the outside, but we are the same on the inside. We share the same human emotions. We cry, we feel pain, despair, hope, and joy. We hunger for physical food, love, affection, self-worth, and spiritual strength from a higher source. Underneath the external facade, we are fellow human beings after all.
