If you are not aware of Project 2996, I’d like to explain the project. Each year on September 11th, bloggers post tributes of one of those who perished in the numerous attacks of September 11, 2001. There are still those who have not been ‘remembered’ or the links to their tribute pages have become broken or inactive. You needn’t know the person to write about them. I’ve been able to find find information online on the names I’ve chosen – enough to leave a small legacy of who they were and how they are missed. Visit Project 2996 to find a name. There is a separate list of those needing a remembrance. Choose a name and leave a comment on any page so that the webmaster knows you are participating. For examples, you can view my write-ups on Laurie Ann Neira AA Flight 11, Robin Kaplan AA Flight 11, and David E. Retik, AA Flight 11.

I will choose a new name this year and post it on September 11th. If you blog, I hope you will join the effort.
