My kids and I just returned form a screening of Michael Cusack O’Connell’s film ‘Mountain Top Removal’ at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies. I saw your name listed in the credits as well as a few other familiar ones.

It was great being able to see and hear Ed Wiley and the work he’s doing on behalf of the children at Marsh Fork Elementary School.

Thanks again for the info and I look forward to seeing more of your work on this subject.
