THAI CAVE RESCUE – A TRIBUTE TO THE POWER OF INTERNATIONAL UNITY

by

Like millions of others around the world I have been following the news of the twelve Thai boys and their football coach trapped in a cave deep below ground. It was the stuff of nightmares except it was all too real. How amazing that against all the odds they have all been rescued. One very brave and generous man, Samam Gunan, gave his life in the process. The divers repeatedly risked their lives for the good of others. As well as pray for the successful outcome of the rescue mission I have been reflecting on how powerful we all become when we put aside those things that divide us and work together. In recent weeks we have been reminded of how much unites us in this world and we have witnessed the sheer beauty of the human spirit.

    Clare, Thank you for this thought-provoking paragraph. I have been touched, too, by the universal outreach to the crisis in Thailand. There is no doubt how much can be achieved by working together with a common goal and an acceptance to move beyond one’s personal comfort zone for the sake of the enterprise in hand.

    Thanks Clare. This is an example to the world of what human beings are capable of, when as you say, we all focus on a common good instead of our own individual wants.
