“The World Came to the Rescue.”
(A statement halfway into this news video.)
Working together with courage, skill, and cooperation we can accomplish the seemingly impossible. Over 1000 rescue workers, plus volunteers, plus the hopes and prayers of people around the world focused on the boys in the cave came together for a common goal. Imagine what we could do with this kind of focus and cooperation for peace, for the earth, for finding what we can agree on.
I’m sending prayers to the family and friends of Saman Gunan, (also spelled Kunan) who died while delivering oxygen tanks to the boys and their coach. He will be remembered well.

JoAnna, I am so glad you posted this. I have been thinking the same and you voiced what we all
need to see. What wonder can take place when the world unite in their effort. A big light was lit
to remind us of love and care coupled with skill and dedication can do.
Saman Kunan knew the danger yet willingly took the risk for the safety of the boys.

Thank you, Laura. It does the heart good, and the world, too, to know we can put politics aside and that so many people care.

You say it all in your opening sentence, JoAnna:
“Working together with courage, skill, and cooperation we can accomplish the seemingly impossible.”

Thank you, Rosaliene. Maybe that should have been my one-liner. I’m glad you zeroed in on that sentence.

It was so dangerous and all were so brave. It is so hard to imagine how those boys spent so long in a dark place. Yes, cooperation and courage is much needed in today’s world.
