US Citizens - Please HELP

Hi all,

Mario's mom here.   We were reading @HomerBlindCat's blog this morning and I got absolutely livid at what I was reading.   It seems that many of the 9/11 first responders, firemen, and policemen are now experiencing serious health problems as a result of doing their job.   The sad fact is that many now have no health insurance and are getting no help for putting their lives in danger for us, the public.   

Please go over to @HomerBlindCat's mom's Blog, read the facts and contact your senators.   Homer's mom has provided all the information needed.   Here's the link to Homer's blog:   http://gwencooper.com/blog.php 

As an incentive, Homer is even willing to give out a pawtographed book of Homer's Oddessy to those willing to take the time to do this.     If you need incentive to follow through with sending a letter to your senator, then maybe receiving a copy of Homer's excellent book will do it.  Most of all - contact your senator and let them know this is a terrible injustice to those workers dedicated to helping the public.

I have Homer's book and dearly loved it.   It's well written and a very touching story.   I had told Homer that what I was reading upset us so, that it's not necessary to send us the book as we already have one.  I'm just hopping mad and want to do something about this problem.

Animals - please encourage your humans to take the time to do this.   Instructions are in Homer's mom's blog.  I know it's the Christmas season and everyone is busy, but how would you feel if you were a family member of one of the workers affected.

Thank you.

Mary (with Mario's supervision, of course.)

I read Homer's Odyssey and I remember the 911 part - my human and I think it's awful that these first responders aren't getting the health care they not only need, but deserve. Those people should get free care for the health issues that were caused by 911 for life! They are heros.

(Um, I guess this means my human is contacting her senators!)

As you know, my peeps are deeply involved with issues involving 9/11. Both our NJ Senators support the Zadroga bill. The GOP can give billions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthy but can't fund health care for 9/11 heroes. We know some people personally involved with these health issues. The rest of the country has already forgotten all the good will they showed New Yorkers in the aftermath of 9/11. Help the heroes or maybe next time they won't be here to help us!
