Expansion and Graveyards yet Again

161-year-old graveyard to be bulldozed to make way for new runway at Chicago's O'Hare airport | Mail Online

 I read this the other day and had to wait until I calmed down before I could go forward.  I am appalled at what people continue to do with Graveyards.  So Do Something Different for Expansion.  Have you no respect?  Do you not think someday you will be dead?

 I looked at the tombstones and the condition of cemetery and your not even picking on one that is in ruins.
 Sometimes progress shows ones lack of respect for life and death.

 I surely can understand cremation more than ever before.

 I bet these people paid good money for what they are interred in and I am not seeing any compensation except to move what can be removed so that ground can be flat and airplanes land on it.

I think you need to build above and reinforce the runway so people can still enjoy the cemetery.
Yup lift up the runway and adjust your thinking.  I guess I am just tired of the destroying of cemeteries.

Not long ago I read where the coal companies go out in the out back of country and gobble of family cemeteries along with the coal ore and send it to plant for rendering. Those families are not moved or even
notification of kin is taking place.

Money, Money and Money..

  1. This isn't an isolated incident, either. I saw where the same thing was done to build a Wal-Mart. I remember when it was considered uncivilized even to walk on a grave, but now people have been taught to ignore the dead in favor of the living.
