Heroes And Heroines

Heroes And Heroines

Dear Editor;

There are a group of heroes and heroines who have not been given the recognition deserved. They too, are victims. They too, risked their lives by exposing themselves to falling debris; to disease; to the trauma of pulling bodies or body parts out of the hell of "ground zero"; the stench of burning cable wine and human flesh and disinfectants.

I’m speaking of uncompensated volunteers from the city and surrounding areas, from cities across the United States, from Canada.

To honor these men and women I propose a parade here, in Rockaway, marked exclusively for them and designed much like our "Night Out Against Crime" where East meets West at the geographical center of Rockaway. All participants would join in this salute to these unsung heroes and heroines without expecting gratuities.
