Calling All Bloggers - 9/11 Posts Needed

Note: Reposting from August 2nd to keep spreading the word.  More bloggers needed.


D. Challener Croe is looking for 2.996 bloggers to each write about a victim on 9/11 in time for September 11th this year.

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.  We started 2,996 Project to coordinate the creation of the tributes, and   that's what this site is all about.  Here you can sign up to make a tribute yourself, on your blog (we'll   randomly assign a victim to you).  You can also browse or search through either the victims that have   already been assigned, or those that have not -- and you can get pointers to more information on all of them...

  And from the FAQ:

...I hope that by having 2,996 of us write a tribute to these people that we will each learn about our victims. We will burn into our own brains the details of their lives and come to know more about them than we do about the monsters who took their lives. I can say that after doing my own research I will never forget the name of my victim...

Here's an example by Kris at 2996.

If you are blogger, consider joining the effort.
