I do not know the specifics of why these specific names were added late to the alphabetical list I was reading.
I do know there were some whose location in the World Trade Center was never a certainty. They are missing, presumed dead.
There were also a few who made it out of the buildings, only to suffocate and die from inhaling the vaporized ruins. Their names were added later.
Also, over eight hundred
of the first responders - the fire fighters, the police, the paramedics, and so on - who arrived on the scene of 9/11 have died from the complications of breathing such noxious fumes.
Also the survivors and emergency workers who committed suicide after trying and failing to cope with 9/11 have been added to the rosters on some places but not others.
As others who were on the streets of New York near ground zero succumb to rare cancers and other ailments associated with breathing in vaporized buildings and bodies, the list slowly gets a little bit longer.
Personally, I think we could add every American and allied soldier or civilian who has died as a result of conflict with any Islamic sect since 9/11 to the list. I'd even tack on any peaceful Muslim civilian who never took up arms but was killed in crossfire or bombings or whatever.
That is why we must NEVER become complacent, NEVER stop feeling the sting of it, NEVER get over it -- it is still claiming lives today.
