What is the 2996 project?
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 Iâ€™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 peopleâ€“kind of like a wake. Over the last 5 years weâ€™ve heard the names of the killers, and all about the victimâ€™s deaths. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate those who died. Forget the murderers, they donâ€™t deserve to be remembered. But some people who died that day deserve to be rememberedâ€“2,996 people.
If you want in on this tribute, go here.
We’ll be paying tribute to 38-year-old Larry I. Beck of Baldwin, N.Y., who was murdered by the Religion of Peace™ at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01.
