Oh, how awful. How wrenchingly sad.
I cried in wonder and joy and disbelief at the headline of USA Today in the box on L Street, just up out of Farragut North Metro. They’ve been miraculously rescued.
Then I get to work and fire up Washington Post and see the news that the announcement was wrong. Twelve of the miners are dead.
We pray for their souls and hope they are now with St. Piran and John L. Lewis. Amen.
