Cynthia Boaz: Thoughts About the True Miracle in the Andes

In this perceptive, sensitive piece written for Truthout, Cynthia Boaz says, “Exactly 35 years ago today, a horrific and extraordinary chain of events was set in motion high in the Andes above Chile. A small commuter plane carrying 45 people crashed on Friday, October 13, 1972. For the next two months, a group of survivors of the crash, most of whom were the young members of a Uruguayan rugby team called the ‘Old Christians,’ kept themselves alive against all laws of nature, physics and reason.”
