(Editor’s note: Robert E. Murray, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Murray Energy Corp., delivered this prayer and message to approximately 50 staff members last Wednesday afternoon. He provided The Intelligencer with the letter he read to employees upon being asked to comment on the layoff of a number of employees the day after the 2012 general election. He said the company will be forced to make more layoffs in the coming months.)
Mr. Robert E. Murray’s Prayer, as shared with his workers:
The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals of our Founders. And, away from the idea of individual freedom and individual responsibility. Away from capitalism, economic responsibility, and personal acceptance.
We are a Country in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom.
