Many of the readings we did spoke about the importance of unity and overcoming the horrors of 9/11 yet here we are in April of 2010 and still have not been able to rebuild the land nor properly compensate the heros and pay for their medical costs.

9/11 in the News Today
9/11, terrorism, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are very prevalent news pieces, but recently several domestic news stories regarding 9/11 have gotten much attention, particularly in the NY media. Emergency responders and those who worked at Ground Zero on the day of the attacks still do not have the government's financial support to cover their medical costs(scroll down on webpage to the second article), a court settlement with 10,000 9/11 workers is being held up, and Ground Zero has yet to be rebuilt because of disagreement over who should foot the bill.
