The rescue of the Chilean miners makes me happy. I’m sitting here in front of the television, watching, hardly able to look away. Most of the time I don’t watch the news, because it is so sad, or because I don’t care about celebrity gossip. I read it online instead, where I can filter out the chaff. But this story is one I want to see, one that is inspiring, a glad, glad moment that really sends light out into the world. I don’t have many words to express my happiness; somehow the tears in my eyes and the warmth in my heart speak more than anything I could ever write. I will light a candle to burn brightly in the dark. Happy day. Hope.
