Out of cave murk comes shining hope
The bowels of Tham Luang cave are described as being pitch-black with near-zero visibility. As an international team of experts race against time to rescue the remaining four footballers and their coach trapped inside the labyrinthine cavern for more than two weeks, the dark place seems to shine with the light of hope and faith in humanity.
As the world rejoiced at the news that eight boys had been helped out of the cave safely as of press time, our thoughts and prayers return to former Navy Seal Saman Kunan, who died while transporting air tanks into the cave to be used by divers extracting the trapped boys.
