EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter was written as part of a class project at Brushfork Elementary School.

I am a fourth grader at Brushfork School. I’m worried about coal miners, because of where Obama is killing our coal jobs. West Virginia depends on coal because it powers our entire nation.

The reason why I think coal miners need to do their jobs is because my grandfather always told me coal powers all of the USA. He said this because he was a coal miner at one point in time. So why does Obama want to kill coal jobs.
