Good Energy  

I'm sure most of you have been following the mining accident that happened a few days ago here in WV.  It happened about an hour away from me, and the one survivor was brought to the hospital here last night.  I know the story has touched so much of the nation, but it has particularly effected me.  Almost everyone in WV has coal miners in the family or knows someone who works with the mines.  Even though this time I didn't know any of the miners, I know that I could have.  Last night I kept waking up thinking that it wasn't true, that they had to be alive and somehow the media had it wrong.  Today I'm very angry.  I cannot even begin to imagine what the families are going through.  Please keep sending that good energy toward the families and the lone survivor.  The hospital is beside the law school, and we went up to the school today to just send some good energy his way. 

That is the hospital behind Albus.  He looks almost like he knows why we came.

it's so sad, I has so happy last night when they said some of them were alive, then this morning I just couldn't believe it!! Those families must be in so much pain, I can't imagine it.
My prays and thoughts are with all involved

I'm still so sad about this that its hard to concentrate on my work, there seemed to be so much hope earlier last night and then when I heard the news later on after midnight here it was just devestating. But I am definately sending my thoughts out to the families and hope the survivor pulls through the ordeal =(

I try not to watch the news a lot, but I have been thinking about those guys since yesterday. I'm glad you guys could do some good-- positive energy always helps. I know those families must be devastated.

I guess what makes it so bad is the reports going around that 12 were coming out and it was all a misunderstanding and rumor. And Albus does look like he knows something nasty sad is going on.

Albus looks so wise. I'm sure your good thoughts and vibes will be appreciated.
