I just wanted to cry when I read this. "It wasn’t bad. Just went to sleep," one of the miners wrote before he died. As he was facing death, huddled with other dying men behind a plastic barrier that couldn’t keep back the poisinous carbon monoxide, he wrote a note to comfort his family.
He knew he was dying, and rather than panic or pray or write in an angry tone, "why me???," he left a message for his family, to tell them that he was fine.
Tragic. Beautiful. Overwhelming.
God be with all those who mourn.
