La Estrella Solitaria Chile

13 Oct

Greetings my friends
Today the sun can shine again on my adopted home Chile South America
At the moment of writing 33 miners are being raised slowly to the surface after being confined in the bowels of the earth 65 metres below the ground in the mine in North Chile called San Jose
They are being raised in a capsule called the Phoenix which is appropriate for those that know the story of the Phoenix rising from the ashes
These men have undergone a great personal trauma which will affect them and their loved ones for the rest of their lives
The great Republic of Chile has suffered many catastrophes over the years and centuries particularly this year with the devastating earthquake that rocked Chile and brought buildings to their knees in Santiago
The efforts of all those in the rescue of these men is symbolic of the unity of all the South American peoples in Chile
I pray to God that all goes well and that there is light at the end of the tunnel
Chile is a proud and patriotic country that is underestimated by the Western world in that it is still classified as a third world country
Let me assure you from my time in Chile , this country is full of patriotism , culture and technology that puts many first world countries to shame
Chile has been on stand-down for over 60 days now as they unite in one accord as a great Republic and care for their own
A country that has the proud flag to wave
A flag that says we are Chilean and these miners are our sons
Chile be proud
You have come through heartache and despair
The earth talks in many languages in Chile
But as the sun rises over the Andes
So does the sun in a Chileans heart
I am proud of my Chilean wife and my Chilean family
I am proud of my adopted country
And most of all I am proud to witness the unity of a country in the face of adversity
I am proud of you Chile

Saludos mis amigos

Hoy el sol puede brillar de nuevo en mi hogar adoptivo Chile América del Sur
En el momento de escribir esto, 33 mineros están siendo subidos lentamente a la superficie después de ser confinados en las entrañas de la tierra 65 metros bajo tierra, en la mina San José en el norte de Chile,
Ellos son subidos en una cápsula llamada Fénix que es apropiado para aquellos que conocen la historia del ave fénix que renace de las cenizas
Estos hombres han sufrido un gran trauma personal que le afectan a ellos ya sus seres queridos por el resto de sus vidas
La gran República de Chile ha sufrido muchas catástrofes en los últimos años y siglos en especial este año con el devastador terremoto que sacudió a Chile y trajo a sus rodillas edificios en Santiago
Los esfuerzos de todos los participantes en el rescate de estos hombres puede ser símbolo de la unidad de todos los pueblos de América del Sur en Chile
Ruego a Dios que todo vaya bien y que haya luz al final del túnel
Chile es un país orgulloso y patriótico que es subestimado por el mundo occidental en que aún es clasificado como un país del tercer mundo
Permítanme asegurarles de mi tiempo en Chile, este país está lleno de patriotismo, cultura y tecnología que pone a muchos países del primer mundo en vergüenza
Chile ha estado a la espera por mas de 60 dias hasta ahora, hoy que se unen de comun acuerdo en ona gran República a cuidar de los suyos.
Un país que tiene una bandera orgullosa que ondear
Una bandera que dice somos chilenos y los mineros son nuestros hijos
Chile se enorgullece
Ustedes han pasado a través de la angustia y la desesperación
La tierra habla en muchos idiomas en Chile
Pero a medida que el sol se eleva sobre los Andes
Así lo hace el sol en el corazón de los chilenos
Estoy orgulloso de mi esposa chilena y mi familia chilena
Estoy orgulloso de mi país de adopción
Y sobre todo me siento orgulloso de ser testigo de la unidad de la humanidad frente a la adversidad
Estoy orgulloso de ti Chile….

    I heartily agree with you Ian! 🙂

    However: While modern mines in Chile are classed as first-rate, San Jose lacked vital escape routes and that’s why they had to use drills which were never designed for the task to drill through to their Hellhole and save the 33 brave men who faced certain death in their tomb.

    As I write 17 have been saved and the rest will come as soon as the Fenix 2 has been serviced.

    This must NEVER happen again and a purpose built drill must be designed so that these events will not have to rely on whatever machines that could be pressed into service!

    Well Done to the rescuers.

    VERY well done…

    I have been watching and rejoicing with the people of Chile.. and adding my thankful prayers for those who are safely delivered and for those still yet to be released from the bowls of the earth.. And I am thankful that theirs and their families long wait is almost over.. I just hope that in the aftermath these men and their families are not forgotten in their long legal battle which will ensue.. As they will need support on many levels..
