After 16 days of being trapped inside the Tham Luang cave, four youths of the Wild Boars Thai soccer player team were rescued last night.

Risks were laboriously evaluated and hard decisions had to be made. The option to wait out the monsoon rains proved more dangerous as it could take 4 months to let the heavy rains pass and all that time could further seal the Tham Luang cave and doom the Wild Boars Thai soccer player team and coach trapped inside. There was zero option to train the kids first in diving before commencing with the extraction as the rescue was deemed a "race against time and water." Weather was favorable the past couple of days. Some water had receded and efforts from the team to pump water out lowered water levels inside the Tham Luang cave. This lessened the time of diving as they gained more ground. thai cave rescue

With difficulty, they decided to bring out the healthiest ones first. This move gave them a better understanding of the situation and the challenges they need to prepare for as they extract the weaker ones later on. This move also hopefully further boosts the morale of the remaining Wild Boars Thai soccer player team and coach. Knowing all safely made it out will heighten their spirits and keep them positive all throughout the dangers of getting out of the Tham Luang cave. thai cave rescue

What is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. (Marianne Williamson) What is Forgiveness? When you've forgiven, is everything just lost and forgotten? Like a memory wiped off, the incident and the feelings that go with are never to return? The offense and hurt never happened? No traumatic, hurtful event took place? There's no history because no such thing took place? Is that what forgiveness is?

At other times, we may handle the hurt in ways that are uncommon with other people. It may even seem like we're the only one who's facing that kind of experience and the way we resolve things may come off as strange for others around us. Across age groups, genders, and cultures, for
