    Seven lost lives lengthen sad tally By PETER HALL, Penn Live, PA
    For Bruce Paulus, of Allentown, who served with Stefano in the Marines, Workers Memorial Day sends a message to employers that safety should come before profit.

    "Look at that list. Don't let it happen in your plant, facility or place of employment," Paulus said.

    For union bricklayer Lou Polentes, of Bethlehem, who said he has lost colleagues to accidents, the ceremony is a way to keep danger in perspective.

    "It's important because we take every day living and working for granted. With everything we hear about on TV and in the paper -- accidents, 1,500 dead in Iraq -- it seems isolated. You don't realize it can affect you until you're high up on a scaffold and it collapses and your buddy's buried."
