    One thing that I think that the media has glossed over is that while these boys are not experienced at all in swimming, they were in great physical shape before the incident. They played the grueling game of football/soccer and in addition had a lot of experience cycling and hiking prior to this, don’t know how in shape the one kid who wasn’t on the team (friend of the goalkeeper) was. Also it’s also fortunate that the assistant coach was a former monk who has experience with meditation which undoubtedly helped keep the kids calm and aid in not using up more oxygen than necessary. Go Wild Boars! The world is rooting for you!

    I join my prayers with all the other millions that are believing God for the safe rescue of each and every young man out of that cave in Thailand, and for divine protection to be over and around the entire rescue team, and that the rain and flooding would be reversed and abated, in Jesus' name. Amen!!!

    It's kind of ridiculous. They said the kids were flown to the hospital and yet earlier they said they were driven in ambulances. They weren't flown there they were driven and ambulances. I'm sure the helicopters are at the site in case someone is in more serious condition.

    the most complicated and risky rescue operation in the history since monsoon will still last for months. It would be more difficult now. the hole is so narrow and even has zero visibie due to muddy coffee colored water. Keepsafe everyone. From Philippines ?

  • Reply LCDH 83855 July 9, 2018 at 6:46 am

    Atheists believe in the good and negative forces in the universe. When more and more people show care and concern for the boys, the coach and the rescuers, positive forces are drawn towards them. The weather will become fine and the rescue mission will go well. It is human's loving-kindness and compassion that make the world a better place, not a schizophrenic, violent, sadistic, cruel deity who massacred innocent people with his wrath, not sparing pregnant women, children, babies and innocent animals with flood and fires (as recorded in the holy bible) and with all kinds of 'natural' disasters to punish 'sinners' to make them recognise him, instead of appearing physically before humans and healing all cancer, kidney, AIDS, Down Syndrome, paralysed patients so that people will realise he is the true god.

    This situation has evoked every human emotion there is. And now I want to thank God for this miracle. But it's more than a miracle. It's countless humans performing seemingly impossible tasks. And all for love. Multi nations coming together in the name of love. If only the whole world could do this.

    It's all the coach's fault to have led the boys into the cave DESPITE THE WARNING PRINTED ON THE CAVE ENTRANCE! The coach should be left there inside the cave not to be rescued, or if he is to be rescued put him in jail afterwards.

    I don't get why they stop the operations for the night, if they're in a hurry for incoming storms. I mean, there's no night and day inside a cavern, and they can surely manage shifts both inside and outside.
