2,996

Just came across this tonight and wanted to pass it along.

 Hat tip to Katey's Kafe.

 (and also attempted to sign up myself, but their site seems to be experiencing some technical difficulties.)

After 9/11, my youngest sister said,

"We should remember and celebrate all of the innocent lives taken away on that day. "

There is a blogger who has started a project to do just that.

The 2,996 Project

"The idea is simple, but powerful: have a special tribute for each victim of 9/11, with each tribute being created by a different blogger.

2,996 stories…

2,996 voices…

2,996 remembered…

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."

The blog is here 

and the project page to sign up is here

Five years after that awful day, this seems like a beautiful way to "remember and celebrate".
