closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

"He said, listen, if we get one boy home to his parents, I personally would consider that a success mind, you the Thai government was telling the whole country in the world that they're offering zero risk option, which means all of the boys would be rescuing. And they're telling them that success would be one live boy. So the divers were convinced they could get themselves out of the cave. They were convinced they could get the boys physical bodies out of the cave. They were not convinced. They could get the boys out of the cave alive. So glad it worked. I'm glad that I did not have a child in that cave. So to talk about a crazy mission, you wrote this book, and how many leaks I wrote the first manuscript in twenty four days. Whoa. Yeah. I it's California's everybody has little guest house, and my family went off on the vacation that we were supposed to go to Vermont with family and the dog, and I moved out those little office, and I slept there, and I took my meals there and for twenty four days, I didn't leave the house except to walk the dog. And and I call, you know, because I was reporting it, I didn't know any everything that you just heard I did not know until I started writing in these twenty four days. Yes. So you're writing and reporting at the same, correct? That's even crazier. Yeah. So I was I- conversations with Thailand. Sometimes I'd have a translator on the phone simultaneously, which was a nightmare. But thank you to what's app and to line and all these other applications out there because otherwise couldn't do it. I was talking to. Multo were there was one diver. Great Britain Belgium, Finland Australia where else. Oh. And the guy in Israel, and you traveled to to talent I wrote the manuscript. And then I went to Thailand to do my third trip to report for for the book. The first trip was ABC's. Second trip was also so I did reporting then and then it went again for third reporting trip, and and I literally was filling in blanks. I would do the interviews. I jump back and rewrite like in the car as I'm going so superintendents, and then, you know, people probably don't know, but there are multiple passes. So you you basically do four versions of the book, and you keep updating and refining it as you go along. Generally, they want you to be done by the first or second version, but you know, I kept getting new stuff in and the more the more I became exposed to people who are involved in more connections. I made and so I ended up having. This network of dozens of people, and it was amazing for me because it was so, you know, it's everything that is different from what we do on the nightly news or GM may or those stories where so much gets left on the cutting room floor in this case nothing did and I could get as deep into the gizzards of people's lives and their stories as I possibly wanted, and I could tell every single juicy detail. So I loved it. I reveled in every minute agonizing twenty hour day. It was going to say because what you're describing sounds horrible to me not the not the product. But the the process did you take any time to meditate during those twenty four it is. I did I did mindfulness breathing. I wouldn't say meditated, but I was so exhausted. When it was over that took me how long babe two month. I just all I wanted to do is sleep. I have never been so tired my entire life. I was narcolepsy. Well, congratulations. What's the name of the book? Again, the boys in the cage the boys in the cave. Deep inside the impossible mission in Thailand rescue possible. Rescuing Thailand messing up my own title.

"If we don't take the boys out now before this next monsoon rain comes they're all going to die. And if they don't die in this monsoon rain, they're going to fixate today. It's going to be a slow strangulation. And if that doesn't happen they're gonna starve to death because we can't feed them for one hundred days, you have to pull them out, and he got to pull them out. Now, you have thirty six hours before those rains come. We gotta get this mission going if you don't they will die. Okay. How many can you save? Some what do you mean, some the divers themselves? They didn't tell the Thai government explicitly. But when they first started doing the plans, they thought eighty percent would die during the extraction. Eighty percent. That means, you know, nine out of the twelve boys. Why I mean how because only they're only basically four people in the world it turned out to be six who could actually complete this dive in and out without getting too serious. Trouble the tiny V seals who did it. Now. I'm getting one of them away one of them die, but in a different part of the dive. But the other guys ran out of air because you can't resupply. There's nothing in there. It is literally like being on an alien planet. In fact, the the US special ops airforce guy was like it would be easier to communicate with people on the moon that it would be to the boys and anybody else in chamber nine. There was no physical way on the planet to pass a message that deep into a cave that far into the earth. So they were literally marooned is far into the world as you could possibly imagine with no way to resupply them. So the the divers themselves barely made it in and out, and how are they going to haul one hundred twenty. Pounds of kid and the kids weren't going to be able to swim because they could barely swim. So they had to knock them out. They sedated them so heavily that they could have amputated an arm and the kids would have noticed and it had to really follow from there. Like that close. They gave him ketamine propofol out risks death, as we know for Michael Jackson, actually explicitly talk about that in the book. So they gave them massive doses of ketamine, but a horse trailer catcher Infos with one of those eight is, but it's it's a very commonly used drug in emergency rooms as well. It's also very commonly available in developing countries like Thailand, so they had to figure out not only what they could use. But what they could find in time. So they dose them up on ketamine. That's what they would do. And then haul them out. Now, they're wearing full face mask. But as I described earlier the space that they were working in sometimes was, you know, knee high. And so the kids mass we're getting bumped around, but they couldn't even tell because it was so dark he wouldn't be able to see. So they were terrified that these kids would drown to death on the way out. So the. Everything was conspiring against them. So the government's like all right? Well, what do you see is successful mission, and the US major who was basically running the operation with the help with he had the British and foreign divers as the actual people who are going to implement it..

"And as happens a lot in that part of the world, especially in Thailand families feel that their children, especially if they're poor can get a better education, if they enroll them in a monastery as monks than they could otherwise because otherwise they'd have to be forced to work, always and not go to school at all. So coach was sent to this monastery where he spent the better part of a decade. I think he was twelve and not, you know, he you do some really awful menial jobs, but they also teach you language with. Metallic meditation, and there's also a practice which helped them which is part of the whole priesthood in Thailand. Which is really I think it's it is the original older version tradition of Buddhism, which is that. Desire is one of the root of all evil, obviously. Right. And then see if you see you can curb desire, you can better work on your practice of meditation and Buddhism in general. So they ate they didn't eat after a big noontime meal. They had an early morning breakfast, and then a noontime meal. So all of the monks, including coach AAC, we're used to eating one meal and then being hungry the rest of the day. So for a decade, he'd spent life understanding hunger. Once you understand hunger after a while, and basically temporary fasting, you can control it because you're used to it. And so I believe and this is what we know is that it it helped him sort of understand what they were going through in the cave. Although obviously in Buddhism, you know, deprivation to certain degrees. Okay. But they don't deal with real terrible self-flagellation. So he wouldn't starve yourself for ten days. Like they did. But it least he had a basic understanding of what it's like. To endure a little bit of suffering. And he probably knew what a lot of suffering listens. He'd lost his parents, and you know, had worked really hard since an early age in the monastery. So the coach was heavily criticised during all of this for leading the kids into what could have been a death trap. Is it your view after having done all of this reporting and writing that that he got a bad rap? In my reporting. I learned that by the way, I just remembered I'm sorry, folks. All those listening. I was on air with Dan when the first boy was rescued with right? Hello from New York. I'm Dan Harris alongside Paula Farris.

"Nobody knew where they were took a while to figure it out. Anyway, fast forward a couple of weeks. They've been in there these British guys find them there's this whole international effort to try to rescue them. And it was so much more complex than even we knew when we were reporting about it on the ground. And I mean, we can get to how they did it a little bit later. But you know, it it is for me. It's kind of I I loved the story because it it presents rescuers within unbelievably challenging problem that almost had no solution. And somehow it was ultimately solved, but just the complexity of it, the international nature of it. The foreignness of it was just the makings. Everybody knew at the time that this could either go really really well or really really badly. Yes. Yes. And you know, part of why I wanted to talk to you is one of the coping mechanisms that the coach for those twelve kids introduced in that in that awful scenario was meditation. So what was it? What what kind of? Station was he teaching them? Do we have a sense of how it impacted the kids? So. The boys had so it's really interesting. And I didn't know this at the time. But this is through the reporting that I did in the book once I was actually reported in the book, not for ABC news. It's incredible the degree to which the temple was a part of these boys lines food is temp the Buddhist temple a what it's called the watt in what do we? Wow, is this one. And so it's almost something that they do on weekends it. It's like, you know, like a church almost or like a synagogue, but they had meditate or is it more like a cultural center, it's a cultural center, but they all learn how to meditate and many of them had been apprentice monks, even before they went into the cave, and, you know, not for long for a couple of days or at a time. But they do learn the rudiments of meditation. And so a lot of them already knew mindfulness and breathing when they went in. But with the coach did who had spent a decade as a Buddhist monk. Honing meditation honing the craft and the practice what he did is. He realized that they were totally screwed and probably facing death. And so he kept them active kept them digging and trying to find an alternate exit. Even though he knew it wouldn't happen and every night and day. He would gather them together. And he would lead them through mindfulness breathing and meditation, and sometimes it would be with chance in sometimes it would just be mindfulness. I didn't know he been a monk for a decade decade is a young guy. He's twenty five years old. It's kind of a sad story. He's one of the people who in northern Thailand or a whole segment of society that are stateless and there from people that lives in this is the original golden triangle in this golden triangle area between me and mar Thailand and Laos active in the drug trade active in the drug trade opium. That's why it was originally called the. Golden triangle by the CIA in the fifties and sixties Thailand, really cracked down on the opium trade, but what is flourished since is human trafficking. And so now, the biggest trade plied is women and and possible slaves from the much poor countries into Thailand and then elsewhere into Asia. And so every where were digressing, but all along the route from Mesa, which is the town where this cave is which is snug up against the border with me, and mar twenty miles south are these checkpoints, and that's what they're going for. They're looking for human, smugglers and human traffickers with, you know, their their cargo, quote, unquote with humans, you said there was some sorta sad story but him having become a monk. So he became sorry. Thank you for bringing me back. My job. That's his job. He's good at it. So coach acres. He's known was part of the St Louis minority living in northern Thailand. And his parents were pretty poor and a plague, and we still don't know what swept through his village when he was ten years old about fifteen years ago and it killed both his parents and his brother and so within weeks, he was orphaned and his aunt took him in..

"Back now with my colleague ABC's backup. Let's just talk about Thailand. So you I can't believe how fast you wrote this book, and I want to talk about the process in a second. But you've written a book about an event that feels like one hundred years ago, given the speed of the new cycle these days, but it actually was like just a few months ago, which was the rescue of those adorable boys in the Thai cave. No, go ahead. You're right there for it. I want to hear everything right? So early July twenty I guess this summer twenty eight hundred feels like a century ago. But it's not these twelve use soccer players and their coach so thirteen people in all were discovered having been marooned got lost in this cave. They'd been there for ten days. These two middle age pasty white where black socks with sandals. British divers who happened to be the very best in the world. At cave dive rescues and who happen to have all of their training in the miserable. Murky dark cold type of conditions that were found in this particular cave in Thailand. So they were perfectly suited discovered the boys. They're like, oh, my God, they're alive and that triggered this. Unbelievable. Rush of journalists to Thailand because everybody thought they were dead and suddenly became the story of the summer and over the next week or so those divers the Thai government US special forces and others rack their brains to figure out how the heck they're going to get them out. And nobody really knew how the divers themselves. Once they saw how deep in the cave. They were which was like over a mile and a half, which doesn't seem that far, but a mile and a half of scuba diving in, you know, sometimes the cave was no higher than this table. Right. So there till like three no like two and a half feet. Wow. Yeah. I mean, basically, you think about a two year old basically, the height of a two year old, and they're so they're squeezing through these things, and they're stalactites stalagmites and jagged rocks. That are tearing at them whacking their heads. And they just couldn't believe how far into the cave. These boys were what had happened is that monsoon rains hit but this year in Thailand because of climate change was wetter than normal about three feet wetter and the mountain which is called the sleeping Princess, which normally absorbed, these kinds of monsoon rains that type of that time of year couldn't absorb any more. So instead of sponging it in it expelled, the water, the water goes coursing through the main k outside the cave in coursing into it forced by gravity, and by all these little slits inside the mountain and the boys who'd gun into about two and a half three miles in on their way out. It was like team building excursion. They go on the way out something. See that their exit is blocked, and they had no way of knowing that they would be marooned inside this cave..

"Because it was so odd, you know, for twelve thirteen fourteen year old to periodically meditate and take a few minutes in the, you know, this is the very early nineteen nineties, and it's today if you had your fourteen year old kid, go to Ruben quietly, sit and meditate people would accept it in probably encourage it. But back, then, you know, when you're dealing with conventional family members that is so weird, man. What are you doing? You're ahead of your time. Yeah. But it sounds like the habit was forged in some really intense emotions, do you know, what's funny that I until this podcast until you and I sat down. I never actually associated the two things. I didn't remember because I buried the memory of my father's death in so many different layers of grief and mourning that the two periods were so closely linked in time, it was really only a month and a half or two between, you know, the July August that I took this course, and September twenty fifth when he was killed from one thousand nine hundred for twelve year old boy that kind of thing has to be incredibly difficult can only imagine. Yeah, I'm sorry. I actually didn't know that story for a forty year old man. It's still difficult. You never you never get over that kind of grief, and I'm actually feeling emotional now because it's funny that, you know, Dan, Harris sitting here with me man, who I've known for years could actually make me feel emotional about something that is almost thirty years in the past. But every time you look into something even to a moment of grief and mourning like that and to severe trauma in a different way. It can elicit emotions that you didn't expect you. You'd stumble upon. Absolutely. And I would just guessing, but there's gotta be fatherhood for you has to be an interesting endeavor because give to kids. Yeah. Son and a daughter the poignancy asked I would imagine is they're given what you went through. Yeah, absolutely end. I'm only months away from being the age. My father was when he was killed, which is also kind of a mind trip. He was how old was I'm gonna I'm almost forty one. And he was barely forty two. So. Yeah, it's and you know, I I also have a daughter who's five and a half almost six years older than my son similarities between the kids are amazing because my daughter like my sister is more introverted in shy. My son is a total extrovert and outgoing and walks up to strangers at four years old. Oh, what's your name? I like your shirt. Wife's laughing and the other room. Yeah. So it's funny. Yeah. But you know, the meditation thing it's morphed into different things the older, I got and in different time periods. But it's in some ways, a touchstone that I always come back to and that I've had other experiences that brought me back to it. So a lot of people I talked to on the show who who started meditating young the arc that I often hear is. You know, it's a it's part of their DNA because they started so young. And I think in your case probably part of your DNA, not because started young, but because as we've established it was kind of introduced a such an intense moment of your life. But all but often folks come in and say, you know, other longer time where I'm elapsed meditate. But it doesn't mean that the effect is gone. Is that is that similar to what's happened with you? Absolutely. But it's it's another. It's another hour. Oh in my quiver. Because I'm what's in my DNA is being a complete spats. I am anxious. I am self conscious. I am nervous by nature. I am high energy. I'm everything that meditation is not which is why it's so good for me. When I do it, right? Average TV reporter. I mean, Dan, you one of your symbol seminal experiences.
