Pray for these Miners trapped in Pennsivaina that it all turns out for the best. They are so close now to rescuing them! Mark H.

i lived through the mine disasters in springhill n.s. both in 1956 an in 58 , i was only a kid but old enough to remember,if you want to talk about heros, these guys an their wives an families would qualitilfy,the things they all have to endure an if they come out they will be the first to volunteer to back down for their buddies an they will have the supporty of their families in doing so i know because my dad did , god blees them an gods speed to their rescurers, later ger

in 67 the same thing happened out here again my dad was supposed to go afternoon shift but he decided not to go,for some reason an balmer north blew ,some of his buddies died that day too, not as bad as springhill though.when i got old enough i went to work in balmer north , they sent me to another pit called balmer 1 we were pulling pillars an blasting the ribs or walls in an backing out of the mine , i went of shift an the boys on next broke into an old worling same as down there in the states an it was flooded , the water was so strong it washed joy ,lee norse miners weighting tons down like they were toys.lost alot of friends . so when something like this happenes no matter where it is in the world , we have a feeling for what the miners an there families an the whole town goes through, an our thought an prayers always go with them an one thing we never did was give up hope till the last man was out. later ger

I was watching earlier, but haven't seen anything lately. Seems they were having a hard time drilling. Don't sound real good.

I am saddened too about the little girl abductions. Good thing I'm not in charge of the torture department for these guys.

Thanks for this reminder. Also, we should remember the families of abducted/murdered children in this country; lately there are so many. Children were certainly safer a generation ago.
