You have not heard from us in a long time. Essentially we have been waiting for a scheduled time for oral arguments in our appeal demanding the proper burial of all the September 11th dead. Leaving our dead in the Fresh Kills garbage dump is an atrocity and a national disgrace. We need as many as possible to be present in court to show that this is an issue of utmost and universal importance.
While we have been waiting for this date, please know that several families have been working tirelessly on this issue. We have met with the Port Authority, President Obama, Vice President Bidens office, The Department of Defense and offices of several State Senators. We have been directed to the Department of Justice, and are pursuing that meeting as well.
We have the sympathy of all the above, but still face the obstruction of the City of New York. The City insists that the proper burial of our dead is NOT IMPORTANT; they continue to obscure the facts and dishonor the dead.
This date, beginning a weekend and so close to the holidays, will make your attendance difficult. But, please, we must show the strength of your support and the spirit of all the WTC victims massacred on September 11, 2001 and dishonored by the City of New York.
