2010 has been a year of realization, realization there is more to life than destroying my health and wasting my potential in the darkness of a coal mine. Realization there is more to life than money and objects. These realizations came at great costs to me and my family, yet through them we are now building a better life, one full of love and health, of values and strength. As we progress beyond the many prolific changes we faced in 2010, we cannot help but look forward to a brighter future, a future where coal no longer dominates our lives.
