Food for Thought: The Chilean Miners

I know I run the risk of offending people by writing this. I have a lot of sympathy for the poor men who are stranded down a mine in Chile, with no hope of rescue until Christmas at the earliest. Seriously, I do.

But my mind boggled when I caught sight of this item of news on Sky TV earlier this evening.

Just think about this for a moment. We have the survivors of a plane crash, the events of which were made into a movie, Alive, offering support and words of comfort to the unfortunate miners. Forgive me for saying so, but should another group of people have been chosen?

Maybe it’s just me…I don’t know.

  1. Maybe vegetarians??? ; )

  2. I don’t know either…

  3. Does anyone know if they’ve been told how long they’ll be there? Last I’ve heard, nobody was telling them it would be four months.

  4. Maybe it’s just Chile – dunno (sorry, Andalib!); except I doubt they were “chosen.” Maybe? We’ll probably never know – it does give one pause. . .
