Way to go for Chilean miners!

What a riveting and epic ordeal these guys have endured!

I said a prayer or two along the way for them!

So happy to have three back so far!

I can only imagine what their kids and wives are feeling right now!

It really is amazing that they have made it this far. Then when they said it could be as late as Christmas before they were able to reach them, this was even greater news!

This is quite an incredible story. I am so happy this seems like it will have a happy ending.

I heard that the men all agreed that none of them will profit any more than any of the others off their story. There was even talk about having a lawyer send down a document to that affect, but I do not know if that actually happened. Their thought was that if done right, none of them would ever have to work again. i don't think anyone would argue that they did not pay their dues. I hope they all get the early retirement they deserve.

I just watched the live feed of them bringing up a 27 yr old young man with his mama watching. When he was in her arms again, his mama was sure crying, and this mama was too.

This live feed of the rescue is something else!!! Here it is......

This is the best possible outcome. I am happy for the men and their families.

I have to say, when this all started and started to drag out, I resigned myself to the fact that they would not make it out alive. The rescue effort was well done and successful due to the resolution and efforts of the folks on the surface.

The best of luck to all the miners and praise to all the rescuers.

When I took my shower this morning, I thought of them and the "simple pleasures" of life for them again. That shower for them this morning must have been wonderful.
I agree Andy, I never thought the outcome would have be this.

A shower was the one thing I thought of too.I would lock myself in a bathroom for an entire day.That porcelain throne must look pretty nice too!

Privacy! I bet they miss that!
