On Thursday human remains was spotted by the Port Authority contractor. The findings comes 5 years after the fall of the Twin Towers and raises new critism of the authorities efforts to recover any remains possible. Not all of the relatives to the 1100 any trace of was never found, believes their loved ones to be totally evaporated in the explosions. Charles Wolfe, a spokesman of relatives to the victims, whose wife Kathryn was among the victims, told the BBC he was shocked by the new discovery of body parts, adding that in his view, there was a major shortfall in the original recovery effort, and called for independet agencies to do a all-thorough-search of the site before any further construction goes on.
The remains were found in rubble excavated from a manhole near the site of the World Trade Center. Relatives say the find proves the need for a thorough new search of the area around Ground Zero.

"We can no longer rely on accidental discoveries," said WTC Families for Proper Burial in a statement.

"This must be a deliberate search. May this awful news be the catalyst needed to go back and do the job well."

Families of more than 1,100 of the victims of 9/11 have never received any remains of their loved ones.

The campaign group is to hold a news conference over the latest discovery later on Friday.

Those several thousands of relatives left in the trauma of never had anything found, no traces, not as much as a splinter recovered og their loved ones, shall never find peace of mind or come to terms with the tragedy.

Questions arise whether enough has been done concerning the recovery efforts, when recent reports states, bone fragment found in debries on roofs of buildings damaged and abandoned in the vicinity of the towers. How can they just lay there in the open for 5 years?

In those manholes, presumable searched long time ago, now being emptied without anybody noticing anything, the bone fragments was spotted by sheer accident, "some as big as arm or leg bones", as the debries was unloaded. A relevant question arrises, to whether proper scrutinity are applied.

Could it be Ground Zero five years on has become just another construction site?

(For the mods: I'm aware of similar threads, but my approach is the profanety, the desecration now surroundind Ground Zero. Corporate thinking sees them as an asset that has to be made productive again, in no way as a memorial.)

Three more victims of the WTC disater was identified yesterday.

American Airlines Flight 11 stewardess Karen Ann Martin, passenger Douglas Joel Stone, and a man whose relatives have requested anonymity.

May they rest in peace!

That comfort is still denied more than 1100 of the victims.

The remains identified on yesterday were not the ones found as mentioned in the above post. Ms Martin and Mr Stone were both on board the first plane which hit the World Trade Center.

Here is a snippet from the BBC report.

Recent discoveries have sparked angry calls for construction to be halted, and answers as to why the first search was not exhaustive.

The city has responded by promising to hire 10 forensic anthropologists to help find and identify additional remains, but some victims' families say this is not enough.

"We demand a scientific, well-organised controlled survey of Ground Zero by a reputable entity," a statement by organisers of Thursday's rally said.

"We must show our absolute solidarity at the site where the remains of the 9/11 dead have lain ignored and unburied for over five years.

"It is time to stand up and be counted. There can be no more haphazard discovery of human body parts and personal effects."

New York Michael Bloomberg has said that the city should be proud of the original search, in which almost all areas were gone through.

Proudness shall never heal these wounds in question here.

Can anything at all heal them?

I would say LOVE might.

But take a look at this chart.


I sincerely hope time will heal 9/11.
