Good News

With all of the shit news of Baby-Hands McDrumpf and his mindless, racist thralls being shitty to everyone else, it was heartening and uplifting to see the report that all of the kids and their football coach have been safely extracted from the cave system that they had been trapped in for 17 days. From BBC News:

Divers in northern Thailand have rescued all 12 boys and their football coach from flooded caves, 17 days after they got trapped underground.

The plight of the group and the massive, dangerous operation to free them has gripped the world’s attention.

The first of the boys were brought out on Sunday but the last of the group were only freed on Tuesday evening.

They got stuck deep inside the caves on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding and cut off their route out.

Aged between about 11 and 17, the members of the Wild Boars football team had entered the Tham Luang cave system in the province of Chiang Rai during an excursion with their coach.

After they were found by British divers last week, huddled in darkness on a ledge and cut off from the outside world for nine days, the race began to get them out before the weather deteriorated even further.

Finally, a bit of good news. There is still good happening in the world, even if it’s difficult to see.

Gives me a bit of hope.
