It was kind of depressing hearing about the one body found earlier today. But. News agencies are now reporting 12 miners are alive in the W. VA mining cave-in a few days ago.

Wow, that's really sad. I was really hoping that everything would turn out ok for them.

I heard a news report earlier today that rescue crews had found lethal levels of carbon monoxide, and that the miners' only hope was that somehow, against the odds, they were in a pocket of good air. That was the point at which I really gave up hope, but it looks like they managed to beat the odds. It's tragic that one of them didn't make it, but truly wonderful that the other 12 did.

Edit: That sucks, but it's easy to see how these types of rumors get started.

That is good news. Feel awful though for the family of the one who didn't make it. Rest in peace.

Dream Of A Miner's Child

A miner was leaving his home for his work
He heard his little child scream
He went to the side of the little one's bed
Oh daddy I had such a dream

Oh daddy don't go to that mine today
For dreams they so often come true
Oh daddy dear daddy please don't go away
I never could live without you

I dreamed that the mines were all blazing with fire
The workers fought for their lives
But then the scene changed and the mouth of the mine
Was covered with sweethearts and wives

Go down to the village and tell all your friends
As sure as the bright sun does shine
There's something a going to happen there today
Oh daddy don't go to that mine

Oh daddy don't go to that mine today
For dreams they so often come true
Oh daddy dear daddy please don't go away
I never could live without you

A woman on CNN (who was in the church) has said the owner of the mine just told the families that there was only one survivor. Some how there was "miscommunication"?!??!?!

Wow.
