Thank God Almighty! How about the miner's rescue? What a fantastic event! How emotional, how cool, how positive the vibe, how wonderful the Chilean people are.
Si! Si! Si!
I'm liking what I've been hearing about them. When they had the earthquake a few months back they said " We can take care of this, We will solve this." Then they pitched in and got it done. Bravo. Well done. Team work, people pulling together. That's what builds a society, a country, a people.
Contrast that to what's happen in Pakistan after the floods. Now they do not want food aid from the USA having any markings of the USA on it. We have a law that says our aid will bear " From the American People " on it, in the local tongue and they don't want it on there cause it will lead to violence. They kill each other and the UN aid workers just because the food is from the USA. Same with any schools we build there or in Afghanistan. They go around and blow them up, with their students inside! You'ld think they'ld be more than happy(grateful?) to get some aid for the starving and schools for their kids but no, they're too full of hate to get along and help anybody. This is why they're a screwed up country.
Another minor miracle occured in China. 23 Communist Party Elders, penned a letter calling for the end of censorship in China and the establishment of Free Speech! They called the Chinese policy of repression an embarassment, etc. They want laws to protect journalists. A minor miracle considering it's Communist Party Elders, some of whom were with Mao back in the day.
When they come out, they are not surprisingly “brandless,” save for the Oakley sunglasses that each miner has worn—whether they are rescued during the day or the night—to protect their eyes from the light.
Oakley donated the sunglasses—whose retail price is reportedly $450—that provide them with protection from ultraviolet light. The fact that the famous Oakley “O” is on the side of each of the miners glasses is an incredible branding coup.
