A Separate Space for the Rescue Workers


Bill McLoughlin, Bronx resident

You folks on the panel who are connected to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, and to the rest of the folks here, I just want to go back in time a little bit to September 11, 2001. There are two phrases which can summarize what happened that day - two phrases at least in my mind that people will say in a snapshot of what happened. "What a horrific event it was" and "what a heroic effort was put forth by the cops, fire and emergency services personnel." I think most folks would agree with that.

Tonight's discussion is about the memorial to those people who died that day. I say we should have a memorial for everybody that died that day, but maybe the cops, the fire, the emergency service personnel, they could be put off to one side a little bit, and we could pay just them a little bit of honor and respect for the heroic effort that they put forth that day. That's all I wanted to say. Just a little separate space.
