The whole world has been watching with bated breath the rescue of the young soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave in Thailand.

So far four of the boys have been brought to safety, and the rescue operation was suspended overnight.

Everyone is hoping and praying that all the others will also be brought to safety.

This is an immensely tricky situation, and certainly unlimited praise is due to the very many people who are working together selflessly and courageously for the survival of all concerned.

It is heart-warming that the worst of times brings out the best in people.
