Bless the guys with the guts to dig the coal

I received an e-mail today from my Uncle Barbe in NC. He attached a recent article written by Dick Feagler for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio. As soon as I finished I knew I wanted to share it with all of my blog visitors. It says so much...that people all across America owe the WV (and other) coal miners a heart felt and sincere "thank you." We so often take for granted what they do every day. I hope that you'll take a moment to read this article and then stop and think about what it says. I was born and raised in Wild Wonderful West Virginia and have missed it every day since we moved south three years ago. I know what the average Joe coal miner endures on a daily basis, I've seen it first hand. I know the danger they expose themselves to every day and I'm thankful for them. It is just my hope that those past the WV state line will realize it too.
