In this photo released by Chile's Presidency, Chile's President Sebastian Pinera delivers a speech during an event marking the second anniversary of the cave-in at the San Jose mine in the Atacama, honoring the miners who survived in entrapment longer than anyone else before, in front of a monument on the outskirts of Copiapo, Chile, Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012. Pinera traveled to the northern city of Copiapo to join the men at the mouth of the mine that nearly became their rocky grave. They unveiled a five-meter (16 1/2-foot) cross as part of a monument known as the "The 33 miners of Atacama: The miracle of life."
