The remains of the day at Ground Zero

At Ground Zero additional remains of that awful day, September 11, 2001, have surfaced again as recently as October 20 and 22, 2006. And we need to question why these remains appeared: by pure accident: as reminder to be fearful, or to remind us to fully investigate the crime and criminals that caused them?
Reporting on October 20, The New York Daily News wrote, “Construction workers tearing up a temporary roadway at Ground Zero yesterday made an astounding discovery -- at least a dozen human remains and two wallets belonging to 9/11 victims.” Two days later, AP via ABC reported, “Workers recovered more human remains Saturday from several manholes as the city began a new search for Sept. 11 victims. . . ."
“Utility and city officials . . . hand-removed material from other manholes after tearing into the pavement on a service road along the site’s western edge . . . City officials said that about 15 more pieces of remains [brought] the total to nearly 100 this week.” CNN.com reported on October 23 that at Ground Zero human remains won’t halt construction of The Freedom Tower, a 1,776 foot skyscraper, expected to be erected on the northern end of the trade center site and occupied by 2010.
The story also pointed out, “Earlier this year, nearly 300 other human bone fragments -- typically smaller than an inch -- were found atop a 41-story building near the World Trade Center site that had been badly damaged in the attacks. No remains have been identified for more than 1,150 of the 2,749 people killed in the New York attacks.”
