  2. I’m going to pray for that coach. He may become the most hated in Thailand. Always ask for parents permission before taking their kids on a trip. Should be a lesson

  3. I think there are many good lessons here. The quick discovery of where the kids are stuck was perhaps one great break through. So many experts from many countries coming together and working as a team in such a short tme was another great thing. These events bring back faith in global humanity. RIP to the one person who lost his life. Unfortunate end to a brave soul.

  4. Limeys rocked it. Thais rocked it also. Everyone rocked it. Yes. Thank you from a Yank from Socal. I'll cook and supply drink if you are in the neighborhood. John and Richard you are old farts and still studs. Sorry about the football. You are welcome in my house any day.

  5. What a relief! It symbolizes the Re-birth' of the 13 lives out of the 'Mother Nature's Womb' crossing the murky amniotic fluid of her womb! The greatest 'Childbirth' delivery accomplished by hundreds of Doctors from all over the World! The boys and their coach should be re-named in their 2nd life!
