1. I admit to being totally amazed.

I was expecting bad news, especially after the experienced diver died at the start of it all.

2. I knew it was dangerous, but I didn't realize what a risk just being in the cave

was to even the experienced cave divers.

5. This is simply the most amazing story of this century. Perhaps any century.

I hope someone writes a book that gives us all the details of what happened.

9. WONDERFUL

I really didn't think they could get them all out alive. It just shows what people can do when they all work together. This gives me hope for this world if we can forget our differences and work together for a greater good.
