I am so behind on journals, but I need to ask for your help.
More human remains have been discovered at the site where the World Trade Centers collapsed. The first set was discovered on Thursday; more were discovered yesterday.
These aren't just bits and fragments, but entire long bones, arms and legs and even partial skulls of those who died there in this criminal act.
Normally, when human remains are found at any construction site, work is halted and the forensic specialists take over and complete the search, excavation and recovery of remains.
Mayor Bloomberg has not allowed that to happen.
The families of victims are furious.
I am furious. Obviously, there are still remains there, after all the promises made by the city that there were none.
The families are calling for a special Federal forensic unit to come in and do what is necessary. Mayor Bloomberg has refused.
1200 of the over 2800 that perished at the Trades never received any remains to bury of their loved ones. Such a travesty, yet they thought everything was done to recover their loved ones.
Who can speak for these honored dead? We can. You and I and everyone.
It is our duty on their behalf. On behalf of their families.
Please click this link and follow the directions to send Mayor Bloomberg of NYC and email demanding the construction be halted at the site and the Federal Forensic team to be allowed to come in to search and recover remains.

Thank you in advance... I know that all my j-land friends must be as horrified as I am at the lack of compassion and responsiveness being shown for these honored dead and their families.
