An Open Letter to Congressman Nadler and Senator Schumer from a 9/11 Widow

August 9, 2010

Dear Congressman Nadler and Senator Schumer:

Excuse my perplexity, but don't you think that at least a portion of the proceeds raised by the issuance of a ten dollar 9/11 Commemorative Medal, that is to partially "pay tribute to the many courageous rescue workers who risked their lives" that day, should actually go to those very same rescue workers? Those workers who are, today, "in dire need" of financial support, due to the life-threatening and life-ending health conditions that they suffered as a result of that heretofore mentioned courage. How was it that this bill was able to pass so quickly, while the same workers have been shunned by Congress with regards to the pending 9/11 Health Care Bill?

I beseech you to take the proceeds from selling any commemorative coins purporting to honor the murder of my husband, and give it to the heroes of 9/11. I am sure that the National September 11th Memorial and Museum will make more than enough money to support itself through the sale of 9/11 photos, depictions of the WTC,"9/11-Never Forget" tee shirts, and other such memorabilia. Because, unlike so many of your Congressional hypocrites who voted down the recent 9/11 Healthcare bill, I believe that actions really do speak louder than words.

Sincerely,

Patricia Casazza
