Well it’s happened: Praise be, the Chilean Miners are free. Now we have to wait to see how they will handle their new found success. Rumorists and the AP news are speculating if they will honor the pact they made while underground regarding splitting the proceeds from any interviews of their miraculous ordeal.
I like to believe that they’ll go even further and split all the proceeds. After all they were all buried together for so long, and they all survived, why not rejoice together and all be gracious?
I know money usually makes people greedy – look at AGI and the now defunct Enron for proof — but I hope these brave miners will prove to us just how miraculous they are and share all the money that is sure to come their way. Time will tell, but I’m hopeful for another miracle.
