What is 2,996?
From the link above:
Project 2,996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.
On September 11, 2006, more than 3,000 bloggers joined together to remember the victims of 9/11.
Each year we will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers.
With only 38 days left until September 11th......as of this posting, there are only 216 bloggers signed up to remember a victim of 9/11.........the list of 2009 participants is HERE
While I know so many of us said " Never Forget " immediately after September 11th....there are those who are now saying "Isn't it time to move on?"
Well, that choice is up to you........however, I Can tell you that I Meant it when I said "Never Forget"....and in 2006, when Dale Challenger Roe first came up with the idea of a 'blogburst' honoring and remembering the victims of 9/11,
I learned about 3 of those victims whom I now carry in my heart, and remember their families and friends in my prayers
