Loretta Lynn came from a family of coal miners in a town in Appalachia..
Those areas of Kentucky and West Virginia have depended on the mining of coal for generations. And those who have gone into the mines are not the ones who have reaped the benefits of a better standard of living , even with the UMW. The mining areas still remain more isolated due to topography from the rest of their states.
To mine tons of coal before it's use is banned, so all the Appalachian children's parents will have a final paycheck. Send each child in the world one big lump wrapped in pretty paper. Have a nice card with palm trees, ocean waves, and pretty sand. The card shows how if they put in water and take out they can watch the pretty rainbow colors dance on it, or on top of the water. Explain how on a cold night they can use this magic black rock with fire in a metal pot to help warm themselves back up, AND be doing their part to help warm the earth up too, so one day all those evil cold winters will be gone forever. Include a picture of the winter grinch, which looks strangely like Al Gore. Explain how his cold heart wants many children in colder countries to freeze in winter and how much he hates the warm. Let them know the grinch has a lump of ice in his heart that makes him that way. Promise them that if we work together to burn more magic black rocks that "yes we can" make the world a warmer and happier place for everyone to live in.
