    Dec. 6, 1907
    At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

With numbers like the ones we're seeing, Americans should be optimistic about the future. Unemployment is at record lows, and the stock market is at record highs. But we're not. Americans are broadly pessimistic about what's coming next, the Pew Research Center found earlier this year. Increasingly, they believe that our political and economic systems work only for those with power.
