I believe it is essential. Things like "Megan's Law" or the "Amber Alert" wouldn't exist if not for family members getting involved.

Do The American People Still Care About 9/11 Truth?
By Derrick Broze July 28, 2016
…the (28 PAGES) documents show clear ties to Saudi Arabia. Still, many in the 9/11 Truth movement are cautious of the 28 pages, with some calling the whole fiasco a psychological operation being conducted on the American people. What is the purpose of the PsyOp? The idea would be that “the powers that wish they were” allow a controlled release of the low hanging fruit (28 pages) and focus attention on Saudi Arabia rather than possible connections to the U.S. government, Pakistan, or Israel.
Why is it important to hold people accountable? So they don't make the same mistake again. So the next person thinks twice about repeating a mistake. Because maybe an individual will start to talk about others who need to be held accountable. If something you did contributed to the murder of 2,976 people, then you should be held accountable for your actions. Period. You should NOT be rewarded and promoted.

Sen. Tom Coburn, a Republican from Oklahoma who isn’t afraid of questioning federal spending for popular projects, is challenging $20 million a year in new funding for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.
Mr. Coburn makes it clear that he’s not taking issue with the museum itself, which he says will help those still in pain with their healing process and serve as a reminder to all Americans not to take their freedom for granted.
Instead, in tough budget times, Mr. Coburn questions the rationale behind a bill that would authorize $200 million over the next 10 years for the museum and memorial without finding a way to offset those costs. He also wonders why private contributions from thousands of individuals and numerous corporations, which have flowed to America’s 9/11 Foundation, Inc., during the past decade, aren’t enough.
Deadline Live: Jack Blood Interviews a 9/11 Survivor and OKC Survivors Simultaneously, On Anniversary of OKC Bombing 4/19/2010
Jack Blood of "Deadline Live," brings together the survivors of two different government-sponsored false flag events in a conference call / interview to discuss the similarities of those events - most glaringly of course, the tragedy of losing family members to the machinations of government turned rogue.
9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine, whose son Bobby was killed on 9/11, is accompanied by OKC survivor V.Z. Lawton, and Jannie Coverdale who lost her two grandsons Aaron and Elijah in the Oklahoma City Bombing on Apiril 19, 1995.
The interview is in hour two of the April 19 2010 broadcast. Hour one consists of a tribute to the victims of Waco, The Oklahoma Bombing and 911 Family Members. The alphabet agency directed massacre at Waco of course happened on this same day. Audio clips from the film, "Waco, the Big Lie" are played.

Victims' Family Member reports on 'Vote For Answers NH'
Vote For Answers NH has been covered for the third time in another major New Hampshire newspaper, now in the capital of Concord. Read the article here.
The group is $1,100.00 shy of meeting their campaign budget - all of which is going toward advertising / publicity expenses. Please donate what you can, $5, $10, $25 or more to help ensure the resolution for a comprehensive, fact-driven investigation passes in all 12 towns. As you can read from the latest article, with one of the Barnstead town's councilman calling the resolution "nonsense", we have to meet their insults by disseminating real information to the voters in any way we can. These actions represent exactly the kind of fight that moves our cause forward.
Thank you all for every effort.
For Immediate Release
January 8, 2010
It is with utter disbelief that we listen to the unfolding details of the attempted December 25, 2009 terrorist attack of Delta Flight 253.
Let us remind you, on September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists managed to evade all security measures, hijack four commercial airliners, slam them into three buildings and a field in Pennsylvania, killing 2,976 innocent people, including our husbands.
We responded by strenuously lobbying for an independent investigation to find out how on earth so many agencies could have failed in their duties to protect us, and our loved ones, from such an attack. We asked that they find and fix the loopholes that existed, in order to safeguard our nation.
Firstly thank you all for your contributions to the 9/11 Truth cause this year! I know many of you including my family have given considerable amounts of money to our campaign and you must all be proud of the success we have had in recent months getting the word out to many millions of people, through determined effort and perseverance.
As the saying goes "the squeaky wheel gets the oil" and while high profile groups like www.AE911Truth.org have been receiving regular donations (they still need more) other elements of our campaign have unfortunately missed out.
www.911Truth.org is the “face of this movement” and are the only group that facilitates a real person to be available for anyone to talk to and correspond with about 9/11 Truth issues. This person currently is Janice Matthews the Executive Director who is also a mother and has a large family to look after on her own.
Of course, propaganda that justifies the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq is not new. But with President Obama's recent decision to send 30,000 more soldiers to Afghanistan, more propaganda is being issued to generate support for the occupation. Obama's speech placed Bushian emphasis on the "we didn't start this" meme, returning 9/11 to the propaganda foreground.
Case in point: CNN has an article today titled "For 9/11 families, finishing job in Afghanistan is personal." The headline is misleading, since not all 9/11 families have had the same response to that tragedy. For example, The Family Steering Committee found serious deficiencies in the 9/11 Commission Report.
The Associated Press has a more measured headline for its story on the Afghan "surge": "9/11 families back Afghan surge, but some are wary."
