Please Speak for these Honored Dead

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. 

Obviously, not.

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.

Here is the link: NYC.gov

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.

be well,
Dawn

Done, and Done!!! Mine is in as well!

Amazing how soon those in power forget the feelings of those who suffered the loss of loved ones, as well as the former "living existance" of those victims who paid with their lives. I guess the glare of the cameras, and the "feel-good" political pictures of the mayor at the "new-life" site of the 9/11 attack must be all the warmth and compassion the office holders need! That being said---Dawn, try to have a nice day!!!

I was at ground zero in February and my brother, who lives in Manhattan was telling me how construction had been slow because there were so many factions involved. As he told it... it seemed monotonous and ridiculous that there were so many fingers in the pie, so to speak... but knowing that there are still remains there... that brings only one group to the forefront... the families of the victims. No one should have a say about anything that happens there as long as remains remain. Or something like that. Anyways... we definitely have to take a stand for our fellow patriots who died doing what all of us do - going to work to make a living for our family...

I'd heard aout them finding the bones. I had no idea that work was still carrying on regardless. I am disgusted. I know that life here in Britian is turning into a crock of s**t, where anything human seems to be reviled but I can't believe that after 9/11 the victims are so quickly regarded as worthless by the powers that be in America.
