TxGrandpa2:  Perhaps the fact that the boys Assistant Soccer Coach, who was with them, is a former Buddhist monk helped.  I understand that he led them in meditation to help them survive.  I have a great respect for Southeast Asians in their facing difficulties.

 

 

You're probably right about that.

TemperMental67: Just incredible. 

 

 

It truly is. It's been reminding me of this miraculous rescue.

This has nothing to do with politics.  In fact the United States military has been an active participant in the rescue, however it has been an operation under control of the Thai government and the Thai Seals, with logistical support from our Department of Defense.

 

It's a pity that some just can't forget politics in a time like this has been.

11 of the 12 boys out.  It seems to be going more slowly.  I wonder if that's due to the rain or the fact they were taking the weakest boys out last.  

 

I so hope they get everyone out alive.    And there is no prize or award or amount of money big enough to give to these divers who have rescued these kids.   What they have done is utterly incredible.   True heroes, the likes of which we rarely see anymore.

I have been watching it off and on praying these boys make it out. It's been a long 2 weeks or more for everyone involved in this, the boys and the ones trying to rescue them.

 

Trump doesn't care, that's why no tweet, and as you said if he does it will probably be to try and get credit some how.                 He just doesn't care.

You would think if there was one thing all the Regular Posters on this Forum could find common ground on - it would be something like this good news........................but nope - who thinks Trump will put down his Golf Clubs this weekend long enough to Tweet anything about his Tragedy........he's been Mute so far probably because he hasn;t yet fiegured out how he can claim credit for any of it
