Olé, Chile!

There are hardly any pictures more touching than these, which show the melange of emotions expressed by those who witnessed the rescue of the miners trapped for 69 days in the collapsed mine in Chile.

Some of these beautiful pictures show the miners' families turning from worry and grief to absolute.

Some show how people are overwhelmed with elation and relief at the resurface of the miners and their reunion with their beloved ones.

Every one of these faces is poetry.

These pictures exhibit the noblest aspect of humanity, which is the compassion towards people in trouble or distress, whether or not they are related, whether or not they even know each other.

This is something we are all capable of.

Sadly, we do not always remember.

And some of us don't even know.
