miner heartbreak

i was so incredibly happy last night when i heard on the news that 12 of the 13 miners were found alive! what a miracle! i actually went to sleep feeling so happy for all of those families, and so sad for the 1. and then i woke up this morning to the exact opposite. that 12 of the 13 were dead. how heartbreaking. i'm not here to place blame- cause i wasn't there. but me being me, i immediately put myself in that position. being there and feeling the overwhelming joy of thinking your loved one is okay..... and learning that he never was. talk about a fucking rollercoaster of emotions. my heart goes out to that town, community, and every person affected by the loss of those 12 guys. and i hope that the sole survivor does just that... survives. {{{{{hugs}}}}}}
here's a link to the miner's profiles.. little tidbits about who they were. i think it's important. we couldn't know them in life, we can learn a little about them in death.

I went to bed with jubilee at the news. And awoke to horror.
