Time Out for Reflection

Wasn't in the mood to post anything that would take time to think about or write.

I have been reading The Deep Dark: Disaster and Redemption in America's Richest Silver Mine, and have spent a lot of time reflecting. The fact that my dad worked there most of my growing up years and had just come off graveyard shift the day of the fire, brought the tragedy into our home. My Dad lost one of his best friends, and a lot of good men that he worked with throughout the years. His biggest decision was whether or not he could go back down into the bowels of death - but he did. He had to support us and mining was all he knew.
