The meek shall inherit.

Look out there, son, look at the smoke of progress.
Look at the needs of this great country being fed by industry.
Think of the warmth we provide to the people of  our nation.
Consider all this and then realize that someday it will all be yours.

After the mine owners are through with it and it is nothing but an arid, lifeless, poisonous wasteland.

This is a terrific take on the image
from Tess. I went with the matriarch/
patriarch angle, and you, and many
other have picked up on the Virginia
coal country sadness, that has not
changed significantly since the
Depression; gave me a B&W photo
feel, like time stands still in
mining country.
