Re: Time To Think
I'm confused. Didn't Dan (bksflddan) write there was a memorial for these Mexicans which included their names?
If not, I'm with you, lash, there should be one with all victims names included. :>( Absolutely!!!!!!
Yeah. Well, you know, for the longest time, they were buried there in a mass grave, in Holy Cross Cemetery in Fresno, California. And for the longest time, it was just a stone marker. It had no words on it. And then probably - I'd want to say, about a decade ago - some anonymous donor gave a headstone that just - now, it just reads, "28 Mexican Nationals Who Died In A Plane Crash Are Buried Here." And that's been there for the last 10 years and now, we're at a point where we have these names, so what's to hold us back from sort of correcting a piece of history here, and affording these 28 passengers what every human being is afforded, and that's the right to have their names.
