Until a note came up to the surface.
All of the family members and friends supporting them to continue on and to not give up.

All of those men trapped are trying to keep themselves healthy and alive.
Only having a tiny television to serve as a bit of entertainment and finally being able to have contact with those awaiting their return.

Slowly receiving aids for their survivals:
Fresh air and electricity
In the hot, humid, and oppressing environment underground.

As well as having to keep strict diets
For their rescue to succeed.

All seeming more like an experiment
Not knowing how to handle everything at an exact measure.

Fear and anxiety filling everyone
With only hopes, faith, and luck to save all of those brave men.

The author's comments:
I found the Chilean mining accident ( October 13, 2010 ) story extremely interesting, even though it was tragic. Many different things were said and I liked hearing about all of the different point of views, the story of their time in the mine, survival, rescue, and their life after that traumatic event in their lives.
