In Memory: Larry Gibson

by Alexei Laushkin

I had a chance to meet Larry Gibson a few times during my life. Larry was a leading voice opposed to Mountain Top Removal, the process by which a mountain is blown up to more easily get out the coal seams in the those very mountains. I had an opportunity to visit the Kayford Mountain during the Creation Care Prayer Walk.

For those of you who have a heart for space and location and home you won’t want to miss this short clip that gives you a sense of the man and his passion.
