PASSING OF H.R. 847, THE JAMES ZADROGA 9/11 HEALTH AND COMPENSATION ACT OF 2010
We did it.
When you prepare for a marathon you have the luxury of knowing where the finish line is, and how much of a challenge it will be. When you climb a mountain you have the motivation of keeping your eye on the top of that mountain as you so bravely climb.
Over these many years, we've ran the ultimate marathon and we moved that mountain!
When the Feal Good Foundation says we of course we mean the entire FealGood Foundation and its supporters. The Board of the Feal Good Foundation, under the leadership of Mr. John Feal would like to thank each and every person who supported us throughout the many years.
Thank you for traveling hundreds of miles in a tight-fit bus. Thank you for calling your Congressional Representatives, Senators and other Politicians. Thank you for your many e-mails. Thank you for your financial support.
But most of all we THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN US! You knew we were not going to give up and you knew we would get it done.
This Bill will give Health Care and Compensation to many of the Heroes who are still among us. But it will also be in the permanent record of the United States denoting the need for such financial recognition for those who bravely go toward the fire when others run away from it. It will serve as a motivator for the next First Responder to the next Terrorism attack on our Nation as they too run toward the fire.
We would like to give a special Thank You to members of the United States government who so passionately assisted us in getting this Bill passed; Congressman Peter King, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Charles Schumer and others.
We would be remiss if we did not take a moment to thank the Republicans of our government who believe, as President Theodore Roosevelt did when he said A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.
Another special Thank You to the media for giving us the coverage we needed to get our message out. Channel 11 WPIX in NY did an outstanding job in covering us, as did the wonderful people at the NY Daily News. Thank you to all of you guys!
We ask you all to remember the many times you've seen our Press Releases published, our many interviews televised and our fight documented by the media. For this we thank them.
Finally, The Feal Good Foundation would like to ask everyone this Holiday Season to please pause and take a moment to remember the Zadroga Family and Detective James Zadroga, who died a hero protecting the people of New York and this Nations Freedom.
Please keep in touch with us via our website, www.fealgoodfoundation.com, where we will keep you informed on all the latest news and happenings on the Zadroga Bill and its growth.
