Fisher, read, “Congressman Griffith…That if something is not done about the coal industry that most people around here will not be able to stay because, coal not only keeps the lights on but it also keeps the people from Southwest Virginia alive…do you see a possibility for my generation to stay in our home, Virginia?”
