The world needs a happy ending from time to time.
While watching the rescue of the 33 miners from Chile i wondered why some stories grab the attention of the media and some don't. During the time these men have been trapped and then thankfully rescued safely there have been numerous incidents with greater risk to or loss of life that hardly got any coverage at all. I concluded that it was because it was like a real life big brother situation which could make you think i am being negative about the coverage. The opposite is true, the world is devoid of emotion alot of the time, it does not fit into our busy lives these days, so when a story comes along that triggers these emotions it can only be a good thing (when the ending is a happy one). When the first miner came out his son was waiting there patiently and calmly but as soon as he saw his father come out of the tunnel he started to cry, it was so natural and real and very moving. The world really does need a happy ending from time to time, it gives people a lift even those who not directly effected.
