That was not a miracle in Chile!!! That was 33 miracles in Chile, each one given by the Almighty

The Gift of Live

I would ask them to share with the rest of us how much they truely appreciate being alive and how they must use this gift by sharing those feelings with others. If we could remain on the high these men most have felt we too would value each moment of life even more and be sure to make the most of the few precious moments G-d puts us in this world.

give them space

The first thing I recommend is defintely give thanks to G-D that they were saved. This was totally in the hands of G-D whther they were going to live no matter how much effort everyone tried to help. I hope this inspired both the men and everone else. However, i think the media should give these men their space. I understand everone wants to hear their experiences. The miners have not seen their families in all that time period lets give them time to bond w/their love ones. Peole should realize who gets priorities.

Do acts of kindness;be peacemakers.

They had to have soul searched own there for so long! They should want to help others in need in any way they can. They should be kind and patient to all around them. They should work towards peace in their homes, communities, and the world. If they write books or make movies, hopefully they will be socially redeeming!

in a heart beat

remember that life is a "mine field" and that we're all in this together in every sense of the word. Remember and never forget, that you are beloved, and that the world was created for you. But I don't really think the issue has anything to do with reminding a miner, but rather, reminding us, who stood above, and Who stood above us all. I like your lovely use of the word uplift, and what might seem a pun, perhaps has a depth of meaning that is about the alchemy of words, and that we can all of us do this, so constantly, and so well.
