AFTER IT IS NO LONGER NEWS

From Tracie The Red:

I don’t know who wrote this, but it is in memory of the 29 West Virginia coal miners:

The church bells rang 29 times, 
so we knew it was final, and the end of the line.
Now 29 miners are at heaven's gate, 

with coal silt dirty faces asking, "Is it too late?"
When God replies with half a grin, 

"No my children come on in!"
They place their mining lights gently on heaven's floor
When God said, "Job well done; leave your boots at the door."
