    Just heard that they contacted all 9 miners in PA that were trapped since Wed.
    Very happy to hear that they're all OK.

    There was an article in our paper today that said they were determined to live or die together. They actually tied themselves together with a large rope so that if the mine shaft did flood they would all go together and all would be found. It also goes on to say that they had each written messages to their families before tying them selves together. The article goes on to say that there had been a second team down there that was able to escape due to the efforts of the 9 that were trapped. My prayers go out to them all because this will truly be a long emotional ride for them.
