NaBloPoMo Day 24: RIP Pike River Coal miners

Image source:

Today is a sad day for New Zealand.

29 miners lost their lives after a second explosion today at the Pike River Coal Mine. 

I know we were all hoping for a miracle after the first explosion last week and that these miners would be able to be rescued. The youngest, just seventeen, at his first day on the job and the oldest 62.

My heart goes out to all those who have been affected by this terrible tragedy.  Such a catastrophe and so, so sad...
