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.
