Sago Mine Explosion
I'm saddened today by the Sago mine explosion in Tallmansville, WV. My wife and I both have coal mining in our lineage and even in the best of situations it's a dangerous business. The great number of S&S (Serious and Significant) citations this mine has incurred certainly makes me suspect that this could have been avoided. Regardless, let's not forget that these are real families trying desperately to hang onto hope in the face of ever worsening odds. They will be utterly crushed if their friend, brother, husband or father does not come out alive. If your a person of faith I'd ask that you join me in petitioning God to save the lives of these brave men and that He would comfort their families.
