Grief takes many forms and I believe these folks have seen a world of hurt and they are angry. That could explain part of their position. Personal emotionally driven behavior is very powerful. They are seeking closure, I'm not sure they will ever quite get there, I'm not sure money (that they've gotten or will get from any source) will ever provide them the comfort they are seeking. Nor will any bone fragment, shoe, notebook, dayrunner, briefcase etc...ever replace the person that possessed those items. Moving on is the hard part...this rebuilding on the site must be difficult for those that are still stuck in the loop of grief.
We as a country have all been hurt. Granted some more personally than others however I fail to see how delaying the inevitable rebuilding on that site will ease their pain. We still find bones and buttons of our forefathers who fought in the civil war to this day. We unearth tombs everyday, remember the sacred Indian burrial grounds we disturbed for a freeway? I feel that, like those that die at sea, what is left should be committed to that place. To me that is just as fitting of a burial as any pine box in the ground in a field of pine boxes. There is no disrespect, nor forgetting of their sacrifice, there.
We all have been horribily impacted by that day. I personally don't look for ways to be compensated for my little corner of hurt. I don't expect to forget anyone or anything or any feeling that nightmare of a day caused me. I can blame, but in reality, what does that get me? Justice was never mine to hand out, I leave that to the one that created us.
The road to peace, within ourselves OR the world is a long one. It requires forward movement. If we remain stagnate, they who wronged us win.
One woman's opinion.
