website of "never the same"

While Washington continues to spend billions of dollars on its global "war on terror," thousands of ordinary people who took part in cleaning up the World Trade Center site after the Sep. 11, 2001 attacks are left wondering if they will ever receive a single penny from the government for medical treatment.

"Never the Same," a recently released documentary, shows how tens of thousands of courageous New Yorkers rushed to the Twin Towers -- while they were still burning -- to save the lives of their fellow citizens.

Yet their ailments from exposure to toxic materials like asbestos and mercury at the site remain largely unacknowledged by government officials and callous politicians. They worked day in and day out among the poisonous clouds of dust and the toxic smoke that hovered above the Manhattan skyline for weeks. As a result, many are still suffering from physical and emotional sicknesses, including severe breathing problems, skin rashes, nausea, depression and anxiety.
