For the past few years, I have participated in an incredibly fulfilling project spearheaded by Dale Challener Roe. It’s called “Remembering the 2,996,” and it involves paying tribute, on September 11, to the 2,996 people who died on that day. Some of you may have read my tribute to Vincent DiFazio in the past, and I’m thankful that I’m getting that opportunity again.
And here’s where YOU come in. We need more tributes. We need more volunteers. If you feel compelled to be a part of this powerful project, please click this link and follow it to the 2996 site. There you can read all about the project and sign up as a 2009 participant. You’ll be provided the name of a victim (or you may request a certain person), and you will also be provided links to other sites that can get you started. Then, on September 11, you will take all the information you have gathered and post your tribute. You can post it to your blog or, if you don’t maintain a blog, Mr. Roe has created a website to record all the tributes.
It is a privilege to help keep this tradition going. I hope that you will consider participating. You won’t regret it.
