To support the family, coal miners are blackened by cinders from the face to the body, and their eyes are more resolute. A light smile at rest is a kind of life view that is full of wisdom and calmness. When miners got out of the pit, instead of going to the bath first, they first look for the Acacia tree pit wood to be used in the next day, then going to the inspection machine, taking a break, and finally taking the bath to wash the coal dust. Everyone said that they dedicated a light to humans to dig deep into the ground. He replied, not so great! Just keep alive and let yourself live well.
