What can we as "male survivors" learn from this, that the last miner has been rescued?

Life is valuable. Each person and this includes each one of you is valuable and worth saving.

Just because you may feel like your in a hole, doesn't mean that nobody cares.

When you get into the light you may have to wear dark glasses so you don't get blinded.

It's not just male survivors who get PTSD, and have fears, and may need therapy and feel abandoned. These problems are shared by others who undergo trauma.

The miners were "heros" to undergo a stint of 68 days. Not to understimate the difficulty of that, but a lot of you survivors of csa (child sexual abuse) have undergone a stint since your childhood, and have faced incredible difficulty. You have my applause for that. smile

The news media makes celebrities of these men, and that is good. But you guys who have endured abuse as adults or since childhood are real celebrities. You are appreciated.
