Condolences from myself to the family of Brian Mohammed.
I know this is a terrible loss and a very difficult time, all I can offer is a little perspective: In 2006 I held a fundraiser for the first responders of Ground Zero, The Feal Good Foundation was my exact recipient of donations. Anyhow, I raised a couple of thousand via a silent auction and food/drink sales along with simple donations. I knew it was a drop in the bucket(s) compared to what was needed for the potentially enormous number of sick, and soon to be sick 9/11 responders.
I felt that the alliance of 9/11 responders, working class citizens, along with activist “truth” groups was essential and on the horizon. Unfortunately I don’t think that the full potential of the two groups alliance has been realized.
When you are ready, I feel that it is important that you look, really look, at what happened to your husband, or father, or son. How did those buildings turn from 110 solid stories of skyline to absolute powder and dust covering Manhattan? Fires are not enough, even with a large plane impact, to bring those buildings down in the way they came down. This is not even to mention the weird collapse of World Trade Center #7 on 9/11. None-the-less, that dust has made a lot of people terminally sick.
The nature and true cause of the WTC destruction is only the beginning of a series of criminal acts, including Christine Todd Whitman’s statements as EPA Director to Ground Zero workers, that led to Brian Mohammed’s death. Again, I am sorry – I wish none of this was so.

Mohammed died from illnesses he contracted as a result of his work on the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero in the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks at the World Trade Center.
