Today’s highly interesting read (07/12/18): The rescue of the Thai cave boys is a triumph of bravery, expertise and love

Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days. The only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents.  Photo: Krit Promsakla Na Sakolnakorn / Thai News Pix via AP

Today’s read is from Suzanne Moore, a columnist for the Guardian. Here’s a brief portion:

God knows, I am in bits and overawed at this rescue effort – at the pure unflashy heroism of these divers.

To be trapped underground as dark water rises is the stuff of nightmares. To enter willingly into these cavities and squeeze through in order to take in food and medicine and finally to free these boys is courageous beyond belief.
