Lest We Ever Forget...

 
On January 22 1959, the Susquehanna River broke through the bedrock and flooded the anthracite coal mines in the Wyoming Valley in northeastern PA.

Thanks to the folks who took the time to put this together.





Right now, the same type of greed to exploit our natural resources at any & all costs is alive and well in northeastern PA over a half century later. As the grandson and great grandson of men who labored in the mines, and who died of "Black Lung", I refuse to forget.

Trust me; for those who think all is lost, it is not.

We cannot allow the unchecked rape of NEPA's resources by the fossil fuel industry to happen again.

EVER.

To the souls of the men lost on that day, requiescat in pace.
