The last time I was glued to the screen like this was 9/11. But this is optimistic, rather than pessimistic.
Yes, the media frenzy is present - but we couldn't share the experience otherwise. Yes, the politicians are exploiting this opportunity, but to me the Chilean president came across as reasonably and genuinely enthused. Yes, the mine was dangerous - this accident should not have happened.
But the images that stick in the mind are the love and longings of the families. Their innocent dignity.
There will surely be a movie, but no scriptwriter could concoct this drama of reality.
You can't be me, I'm taken
