For just a couple of hours last night it seemed the world set aside it's differences and focused it's attention on 33 men trapped deep below the earth. It was like a breath of fresh air from all the news of conflict around the world. On rare occasions people do flock together to do some common good but not often enough in this day and age. If only we could copy this effort and spread it around there would be hope after all.
Some 5000 news organizations around the world covered this event. All eyes were on a small town in Chile. Even those nations we tend to label as none caring were there watching waiting and hoping. If only we could set aside our differences on a more regular basis. If only.
