THE REMAINS OF 72 PEOPLE RECOVERED FROM GROUND ZERO IN NEW SEARCH
New York City officials say a renewed search this year of debris in and around the World Trade Center site has recovered 72 human remains.
The sifting of more than 800 cubic yards (612 cubic meters) of debris recovered from ground zero and underneath roads around the lower Manhattan site began in April and ended Friday. The greatest number of remains – 37 – were found from material underneath West Street, a highway on the west side of ground zero.
The city began a renewed search for human remains in 2006. More than 1,800 remains have been found.
I've visited the site at GROUND ZERO when I was in New York and it is awe inspiring. I am all for RECONCILIATION, but I'm not sure that building a MOSQUE on the site is the best idea. I've no doubt however that the victims of the outrage will have their say. Although I don't believe in religion generally, GOD, (or whatever), help those that died there including the young men whose minds were twisted by wicked bastards into believing they would be blessed by Allah in heaven or whatever they call it in Islam.
