Mission impossible!

Against what appeared to be impossible odds, twelve boys aged between 11 and 17 who became trapped in a cave with their coach on 23 June have been rescued thanks to the efforts of a brave team of rescuers, all of whom deserve medals for bravery. 

As we rejoice, the celebrations are tinged with sadness over the loss of a former Thai navy diver Saman Kunan who died last Friday while on a re-supply mission inside the cave in support of the rescue. He gave his life so that others may live showing the selfless courage which highlights the human spirit at its best.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.


  1. Are all already rescued?

    Last time I checked, 8 had been.

    What about their trainer?

    1. Yes Hans, all out including the rescuers. Just in time too -
