Unfortunately, the story and the photos are part of history, but the poverty in Appalachia continues, and will continue as long as President Obama continues his war on the coal industry.I went on a mission trip with several people from our church last year, and spent a week working in a community near the KY/WV border. Seeing conditions there really does change your perspective.To give you an idea of what it's like TODAY in Appalachia, check out the Christian Appalachia Project. When Hurricane Sandy hit last November, it wasn't just the densely populated east coast that was hit hard. These people really need all the help they can get. If you look at a map of the area, it's evident that not much of the federal funding for diaster relief made it to Appalachia.
