In Memoriam: Upper Big Branch April 5, 2010

We will not forget them.

Faces of the Mine project is a website designed by WVU students for the Upper Big Branch community as a memorial to the 29 lost miners. Please visit and get to know the miners, their families and the community.

A story of how one woman met the man she loved in the mine, and how she lost him to the same mine.

You can read many other stories of the disaster here and here.

I'll be keeping these families in my prayers. Thank you for sharing this with us. I went and read all the links to this post and cried while reading most of them.
