Wtc: Make the Past Right Before Taking on the Future

Now that we the United States have elected the next President of the United States, we must stick to our word and our stance for change. Many have told Obama that he has a lot of work to do, this may be entirely true but so does the public. The United States is going through an economic crisis that has millions worried job security, finances, and anything and everything in between. In order to gain some progress for our current efforts, we must first take a look at what is holding us down from progressing with steam. We must take care of the past before we take care of the future, for if we do not deal with what got us in this mess, we will surely commit these acts again. In order to restore faith, hope, and unity in this country we must come together and do what is right, not what is convenient. Once we have acted in this matter we will be able to face the future with all of the right tools on our side. One major issue I am talking about 9/11 and the injured workers who have still yet to gain any compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, and for pain and suffering. These people dedicated their lives to helping others and the city that so many call home, yet after their efforts they we just pushed aside and told to take a number. So many people have experienced respiratory problems that they are unable to go back to work and unable to provide for their families. These people then have to rely on government assistance and the circle repeats itself.

One thing that is a positive however is that the WTC project is gaining headway. There has been many obstacles to overcome in which the budget was overdrawn and the deadline was delayed multiple times. My question is that why do we keep increasing the budget for a memorial when people are still suffering from injuries from the tragic event. I would think that most people would rather have that money go to the injured workers than to a more extravagant memorial. We need to get out priorities in order and determine what really matters. In these trying times we cannot focus on materialistic things, what we need to focus on is the quality of life. Having a greater quality of life will enable people to go back to work, spend more money, and get the economy going again. It is here where we can start to find relief from the chains that are currently holding us down.

If you or a loved one has been injured while working at the WTC site and has yet to recover any type of monies to cover medical expenses, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. This type of behavior is unacceptable as people are still out of work and suffering from the injuries that were incurred from working at the WTC site.
