577. Saving Reminders

These days (some of) the world’s attention, including mine, is inexorably drawn towards Thailand where international and navy divers try to save a group of boys stranded in a cave, filled with rising waters.

In an age with greedy, callous, imbecile leaders of powerful countries, strife and war and the old media still wallowing in all sorts of other bad news, these stories of human bravery and sacrifice are a lot more important, I feel, than the story of the actual mission itself. More than the sum of its parts, so to speak. The story helps remind us all, at least yours truly, that there are a lot of really good, brave and competent people out there. Being just that as part of their job.
