From the light back

The Company Today, October 13, the first of 33 Chilean miners have returned from the grave on this one. More than two months ago, the accident killed them deep underground. Today, one by one they began pulling up in a specially designed capsule. For such a life-saving lift drilled a hole through the rocks, only the third failed attempt. Almost two thousand journalists of the world closer mood: nervous, but restrained waiting upstairs, video Emboldened naked of miners underground. But the light of day rescued out from the capsule in sunglasses, a clean and freshly shaven attire. After the first embrace their wives, children, colleagues, with the president — on a stretcher and to the hospital under the care of doctors. Well, there was a time — almost two months to get ready and to such details. And the glasses to send, and razors, and relatives to provide Chilean flags …

The miners still underground steel for Chile national heroes — gornazdabycha here for a long time one of the traditional sectors of the economy. And in Chile does not become less honor, if the salvation of the country appealed for international assistance. For example, it is reported that NASA's space helped to design and equip a capsule. Red Cross is supporting relatives who waited weeks to rescue a tent camp near the mine …

Questions asked by many international commentators now very different — how to change the lives saved, will return to all of them at the mine, or would invest in such an action, if the land was not under 33, and 3 people … One of the rescued, the young baliviets, although it gave a clear answer — in the mine, he will never come back, the more than that Bolivian president to celebrate, gave him a piece of land in the country — come, abzhyvaysya, master.

Drama miners in this watch does not have a full happy ending — at any moment anything can happen … With envy, however, I want to watch the Chilean this long series where wins humanism and solidarity. And regret that that's such an experience — a joint association in well-deserved, together conquered happiness, unfortunately, unknown people of the former Soviet Union. We are used to herd misfortunes. We know how beautiful hide, to erect monuments. And could this way, one by one, pull out those heroes of "Kursk", and what's the difference if there were this happiness behind NASA or NATO … And in the Belarusian sailors that were among the victims, and there would have on a piece of land. And not on the graves.
