West Virginia Miners

Please find a way to help the families of miners killed in the West Virginia mine explosion.
They are a God fearing, strong people.
One family actually lost three members.
Keep them in your prayers.

We are former Mountaineers.
My father, grandfather, and a host of uncles are former miners.
My mother and aunt have shared stories of the fear that spread throughout the community when sirens blared and ambulances raced up the hollow towards the mines.
