Back in the mid-to-late 1800s, the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky were engaged in a bloody feud that left a total of 12 dead. Some people laugh about it now. In fact, in Pigeon Forge, TN, there is the "Hatfield & McCoy Dinner and Show" which is billed as "feudin' feastin' family fun." But in reality, blood feuds are nothing to laugh about, and they are still very active in the rural parts of Albania. According to Peter Kolarovsky, TWR's Ministry Director for Central and Eastern Europe, TWR is trying to reach these families through fix-tuned radios and through programs such as Project Hannah's "Women of Hope."
