COVERED IN COAL – VIDEO TRIBUTE  click here for video

Hi This Is Serena Ellison I am a Coal Miners Daughter.. You will see my dad all throughout this video, he is the one holding me the bald baby girl… My Grandpa Tony Farruggia is also in this video, as a baby standing in front of a coal train and later in life in the coal mines, also in this video is my Father in law, my uncle James who died in the mines, as well as MANY friends and locals here in WV.  I am PROUD of what these miners do every day, not saying I am proud of how the companies treat them…..This song by the Great Blackwater Outlaws, “Covered in Coal” is used along with these photos of our hard working Miners as a Tribute to the worst coal mining disaster since 1984.
We will never forget that terrible day April 5th 2010 in Raleigh County WV at the U.B.B. Mine.
They will be forever in our hearts as we reach out to lend their loved ones left behind a shoulder to cry on and a helping hand.
Rest in Peace Miners, your babies will be taken care of. Your  WV Neighbors will see to that.
