Editor’s note

The essence of Thailand’s people clearly resonate in the Wild Boars —— twelve boys and their young soccer assistant coach, Ekkapol [Ake] Chantawong, a former monk, who were all trapped in the perilous Tham Luang caves in the Chiang Rai region of Thailand. Their stoic forbearance, immense strength and resilience are indeed, to be saluted and respected. Rescued after over two weeks of uncertain and tortuous days by a selfless team of brave divers, the feat was the “making possible” of a mission impossible. It reaffirmed faith in humankind.
