"Tribute 2,996 Project"

I have been surfing blogs about 9/11 recently as I am wont to do to remind myself of one the reasons I got into blogging. I came across a blog yesterday that was devoting a large amount of time to a worthwhile effort. This effort is called "Tribute 2,996 Project". This blogger has a goal of honoring and memorializing the life of each person that killed on 9/11. Not to recount the events of that fateful day but to remember each and every one of those loved ones that died. One victim, one blogger. A blog post needs to be written and posted on September 11, 2006, this being the fifth anniversary of the day that will live forever in the hearts and minds of this generation of Americans. A blogger that signs up will be assigned someone to blog about; their life, their love, their joy.

I signed up and was given the name of Luke Nee. With just a little research on Luke I have discovered just how much his life is missed among his loved ones, family and friends. And Luke is just one among 2,996. It's already kind of emotional for me because I or someone in my family or circle of friends could have been Luke. Reading about Luke with the intent to write about him puts a personal face on my own emotional experiences and memories of that awful day.

As of yesterday, the project had almost 2,000 bloggers signed up. There's not much time left for the rest of the 2,996 precious Americans to be honored and remembered through the project. If you are a blogger, take time to help with "Tribute 2,996 Project". Go sign up. You'll be glad you did.
