Day of Mourning

Flags flew at half-mast throughout Ukraine today.

One of the worst mining disasters in recent history claimed over 80 lives.  I wish that I could write that these accidents are rare — but the truth is that the mines here are considered extremely dangerous.

Several men are still missing, but all indications point to the fact that there is virtually no hope of finding them alive.

Join with us all as we pray for the surviving families and friends.  May the God of comfort be unmistakeably among them.



  1. Yes, this is what I read of. -sigh-


  2. Mari-Nanci: You actually were the one who alerted me to this. So very sad.
