Flash 55-Esperanza

33 men lost
In
Darkness
Their families
And
The world
Watching
Wondering
Praying
Found
Rising up
Like a phoenix
Evidence
Of the good
That is possible
When
We work
As one
Heart
As one
Love
As one
Mind
Sharing
Knowledge
Solving
Problems
Ignoring
Embracing
Differences
Crossing
Borders
Families
Reunited
Anything’s
Possible
When
There is
Hope

Wonderful 55 words! Watching the rescue take place was watching a wonderful miracle take place. Did you know one of the miners named his new born baby girl Esperanza?
