Real heroes response

Dear Editor,

I am writing in response to a letter to you about the ‘Q’creek Mine disaster back in 2003. Mr. Lee Borger wrote about the real heroes of this incident, the drillers who drilled the rescue holes to rescue 9 miners trapped in that mine. Those men and women worked constantly for 3 days to rescue them! Sometime we get our priorities mixed up! I was told by a friend who the heroes were. He said, but they were above ground, therefore not heroes. Well, what would have happened to the miners if they hadn’t been rescued?

P.S. 9 dead men!
