The family reunions. As a Dad, I am especially moved by the father/child reunions.

Watching each miner come out of the rescue capsule to the hugs and greetings of family, friends, and the President of Chile, who has stayed on-site the entire time. SO moving!

My husband works for a copper mine and even though they make a big deal out of being safe, I wonder how they would handle things if they had a bad accident at their mine. Would they take care of the families even if it meant financial ruin for the company? I am not sure.

Seeing how long the Prez could keep that smile plastered accross his face. Okay, maybe I was compelled by everything else...really.
