If the events of the past few weeks have shown anything, they have shown that history is being written at Ground Zero.

The foundation is being poured for the Freedom Tower and construction is at a fever pitch.

Money continues to be raised by the Memorial Foundation and new construction is happening throughout Lower Manhattan.

WTC 7 opened as one of the first fully “greened” buildings in the history of New York City.

History in the making everywhere you look.

But when it comes to Ground Zero whose history will it be.

The Mayor continues to state that everything possible is being done to find any remains at and around Ground Zero.

At the same time many from within and without the current search team has expressed serious concerns about the inadequacies of this search.

The Mayor has stated that JPAC is not necessary and the city went as far as to hire two ex team members to back up this claim.

Senators, Congressmen, Assemblymen and Councilmen have all asked to have JPAC brought in.

The Mayor has not approved the excavation of the service road, the basement of the Greek Orthodox Church or the search of surrounding rooftops.

Members of the current search team have confidentially stated that they do not understand why these areas are being avoided.

The Mayor Has approved a plan that will bring the sifted material to Fresh Kills once again.

We do not comprehend why anyone would even consider Fresh Kills after what happened to the sifted remains last time they were sent there.

Looking over this scenario it appears that it is not history that is being written but “his story”

Everything that gets in the paper about the current search comes from the Mayor’s Office.

This is not the first time that this has happened.

Remember shortly after 9/11.

The Federal government offered to come in to help with the recovery effort but they were told they weren’t needed.

Different mayor same response.

So here we are five years later and the search is still not complete and the Federal government is still not involved.

But if you read about what is happening at Ground Zero all you here is that everything is under control and that everything possible is being done.

Unfortunately history will provide the real answers when we are still finding remains five years from now.

For us who don’t want to see that happen we must continue to fight for the truth and a comprehensive search by a qualified team.

We need to let the mayor know we want history to be written not “his story”
