To tell you the truth, until today I had been focusing on my own CHILLY MINORS and rummaging through closets for their sweaters and jackets, rather than on the 33 trapped CHILEAN MINERS. But this morning, along with millions of people all over the world, I cried as I watched the 1st rescued miner, Florencio Avalos, emerge from the mine alive and well after 2 months underground.

What a nightmare this man has been through, I thought.

But what a tremendous gift he has been given as well, I realized.

After 69 days spent in darkness and constant fear of being buried alive by a landslide, today Florencio Avalos is able to see his child, his wife, the sun, the sky, the world with the eyes of a man reborn. Today, more than any other human beings on the planet, Avalos and all the rescued miners know that their lives and this world are a priceless gift from God.

This morning as I sat by my computer, I closed my eyes and whispered a prayer…

“Please Hashem, may all the Chilean miners be brought to safety and reunited with their families…

“And please bless me, Hashem, that every day I will be able to see my life and the world through miners’ eyes…”

Watch the emotional reunion of the 1st rescued miner with his son and wife:
