Help all victims of terrorist attack
Dear Mr. Zwick:
The very humane Fund for relatives of victims of the September 11
terrorist attacks must include all relatives of all the victims.
This importantly should include the partners and children of same
sex unions. They suffer just as grievously for their deceased
loved ones as do other survivors, and their need for assistance
is just as great.
Please do not give in to the importuning of callous homophobic
groups and individuals who would have the Department of Justice
limit compensation to survivors of heterosexual unions. They are
interested in a political victory, not humane assistance.
This Fund is intended for humane purposes; it is not a political
statement, Mr. Zwick.
