God Bless Somerset Pa

  1. Like most people on this end of the state the residents of Somerset are self sufficient and stoic. The need to be, in the last year they have the kind of disasters that you would only expect to see in a place with 100 times the population. First the plane crash on 9/11 and now they are dealing with this mining disaster.

    I saw that on the news last night, horrible. It sort of shocked me out of feeling so sorry for myself yesterday.
    How horrific.
    God bless them, indeed.

    its looking more grave by the hour.
    my heart goes out to the miners and their families as well as the rescue workers and their families.
    all we can do is pray for a good outcome

    And a drill bit broke, delaying the rescue attempt by NINE hours. Ah, it's so hard to imagine a positive outcome but we are still praying.

    They are pulling them out left and right now. I'm watching it on CNN! They look haggard but alive. Hope they all do well! I'd freak if I were stuck in a hole like that!
