Heartfelt congratulations to Chile on the success of the rescue of the miners.

Thanks, Andre! (On behalf of Chile, that is).

A close family friend was one of the engineers who worked on the "Plan B" drilling, which is the one that worked in the end, so we got to hear a bit of the inside story, behind the scenes. The rescuers gave it everything they have, heart and soul, stopping at nothing to get it done safely. Truly amazing accomplishment. There were something like 500 people involved in the rescue effort on-site, plus hundreds of others all around the world, each working on their own small part, but all working together as one. A truly incredible accomplishment of teamwork. Even though I'm not Chilean, it still makes me proud to live here.
