Letter: Decency and respect are at stake

Regarding "9/l1 families press fight to contact other kin of victims" (Page A-3, Aug. 19):

The efforts to contact all Sept. 11, 2001, families concerning the placement of unidentified human remains affect us all. The memorial foundation has arbitrarily decided to make these remains a "programmatic element" (their words) of their museum, which will cost each visitor an estimated $25 per visit. No arrangements have been made for free access for people who wish to pay respects as we do at any tomb of the unknown.

Arlington National Cemetery provides free accommodations for visiting the remains of the civilians killed at the Pentagon, but human remains of those killed at the World Trade Center have merely become a money-making tool of the museum. The families suing are not asking for any financial compensation and have found a way to keep addresses private, using a secure third party to mail the surveys.

Privacy is not at stake. Decency and respect are. This is a simple request, made difficult by people who merely want to make money on a shared American tragedy.
