2,996 Voices…

2,996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11

On September 11, 2006, 2,996 volunteer bloggers will join together for a tribute to the victims of 9/11. Each person will pay tribute to a single victim.

We will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers.

If you would like to help out, either by pledging to post a tribute on your own blog, or by offering your services to promote this cause, just leave a comment here and I’ll email you the name of a victim.

Then, on 9/11/2006, you will post a tribute to that victim on your blog.

But, and this is critical, the tributes should celebrate the lives of these people–kind of like a wake. Over the last 5 years we’ve heard the names of the killers, and all about the victim’s deaths. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate those who died. Forget the murderers, they don’t deserve to be remembered. But some people who died that day deserve to be remembered–2,996 people.

Thank you,

D.Challener Roe

Wild Thing's comment.......Thank you Mr. Roe for this very touching and meaningful event to pay tribute to those no longer with us. To celebrate their lives and giving us a chance to join in.

Me too Tom. It should be a very special day for all the blogs. I love to go to other blogs normally anyway, but on that day I plan on having a lot of kleenex handy too.
