Prayers for the families of the 12 miners

cassiet(6/WV)January 4, 2006

Hey gang!!!

I'm a born and bred WVirginian. Today many families need your prayers. Please keep the families of the 12 miners lost in the mine explosion in your prayers. As many people know those of us who live in states which have a big mining industry even if you do not personally knows the people who are lost in mine disasters we know SOMEONE who works in the mine and such loss touches us all. Last night I stayed up until 5am watching the events as they unfolded and sharing in the sorrow of such devastation in the loss of life

The miners families have also been in my thoughs and prayers today. The company I work for here in MN has a large facility in WV, and a few employees have ties to some of the miners in the area touched by the tragedy.

We are very remote from the mining industry here; nonetheless, our hearts broke as we watched this terrible disaster. What a horrible death, and a horrible shock for the families. May God be with them as they try to piece their lives back together.

Cassie,
My thoughts & prayers are with all who were touched by this tragedy.

My sister lives in W.V. & some of her in-laws work in the mines. They are heartbroken right now.

My heart and prayers go out to the families and friends left behind. It is a terrible tragedy and I hope with all the prayers going around for these families it will give them all strength to make it through their hardships ahead. Me and my family will pray for them.
