9/11/2010: The Rebirth of Ground Zero – One World Trade Center Rises

Friday, September 10, 2010

  "U.S. Attacked" read the headline from the New York Times on 9/12/2001. Nine years ago tomorrow the former World Trade Center was taken down by two jetliners hijacked by radical Islamic terrorists associated with  Al-Queda. While the physical structure of a great city landmark was reduced to rubble, the immediate deaths and continued illnesses caused by this attack continue to haunt many New Yorkers. However, a ray of light is now shining on Ground Zero as the new One World Trade Center (formerly the Freedom Tower) rises from the ashes as seen in the recent photo above.

9/11 First Responders May Lose Mental Health Benefits from NYC

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

  Happy First Responders Day??   The heroes from Ground Zero may no longer have much needed mental health benefits from New York City.  The Daily News reports that approximately 4,500 9/11 rescue and recovery workers would lose their mental health benefits beginning January 7, 2011, with no federal safety net in sight.
