New 9/11 monument: A moral imperative
We write on behalf of the thousands who are sick from the toxins released on 9/11. We want to thank Gov. Cuomo, former Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Jon Stewart and the board of directors of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum for announcing a plan to create a monument to honor the lives and struggles of the injured and ill responders and survivors, and those who have died from cancers and other illnesses. We also want to explain why such a commemoration is so important.
