The 2,996 Project
Have you noticed the new 2,996 Project banner on my navigation bar? If not, it’s worth a glance and a click.
I found out about the 2,996 Project through The Unending Journey of the Wandering Author (a blog worth reading, by the way). Bloggers are volunteering to honor those who died on that sad September day. I think it’s a beautiful tribute to those 2,996 victims, so I signed up the day after I read the Wandering Author’s post.
Here’s the 2,996 Project mission statement:
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.
On September 11, I’ll pay tribute to Thomas Patrick Knox. I plan to spend the next couple of weeks finding out what I can about him. If you knew Tommy or know someone who did, please contact me (my e-mail address is on the navigation bar, above the 2,996 block). I want to be sure I write a fitting tribute to him.
If you’re a blogger and you’re interested in volunteering, go to 2,996 Project and sign up. If you’re a blog reader, spend that day hitting as many blogs paying tribute as you can and leave a comment honoring that person.
If you're a blogger participating in the 2,996 Project, leave me a comment or e-mail me; I'd like to chat about how you're conducting your research.
Let’s honor their lives on September 11.
