It’s easy to take freedom for granted if it’s never been taken away from you.
As I watch the Chilean miners slowly being lifted up to the surface again- to safety and their loved ones,
The tears running down my face,
I wonder if they feel as if they are up there in the sky
Flying free in the tangled ribbons of the heavens.
I imagine that sunlight and air and freedom never tasted so sweet.
