Communities seek ways to memorialize those sickened by World Trade Center’s toxins

Thousands of rescue and recovery workers who spent months toiling on the pile searching for remains in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are ill from their service — more than 10,000 of them have cancer. Hundreds have died and hundreds more will die.

Communities in the area are considering ways to honor them, including their names in 9/11 services and adding them to memorials.

Nancy Cutler of theĀ Rockland/Westchester Journal News writes about some of the plans here.
