honor ALL victims!


Dear Mr. Zwick,

I am writing to you regarding the forthcoming regulations for
implementing and administering the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund.
I STRONGLY urge the Department to draft regulations that ensure
compensation is available to ALL victims of the attack, including the
committed partners and the non-biological children of gay and lesbian
victims. Certainly the devastating grief and economic losses suffered by
the families of gay and lesbian victims are NO LESS than that of other
families. Just as the terrorists drew no lines in choosing their victims,
our country must draw no lines in compensating those who suffered the most
personal of losses from these horrific attacks.

Many Americans lost their lives on September 11, each of whom left behind
loved ones. I urge the Department to honor these bonds by treating the
families of gay and lesbian victims as you would any other.

Sincerely,
Individual Comment
Walla Walla, WA
