2,996 victims of 9/11


I am participating in a tribute to the victims of 9/11. On September 11, 2006, bloggers will be posting tributes to the 2,996 victims who lost their lives in the tragedy.

The tribute is described by the organizer:

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.

If you would like to help out, either by pledging to post a tribute on your own blog, or by offering your services to promote this cause, just leave a comment here and I.ll email you the name of a victim.

Then, on 9/11/2006, you will post a tribute to that victim on your blog.

But, and this is critical, the tributes should celebrate the lives of these people.kind of like a wake. Over the last 5 years we.ve heard the names of the killers, and all about the victim.s deaths. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate those who died. Forget the murderers, they don.t deserve to be remembered. But some people who died that day deserve to be remembered.2,996 people.

Thank you,

D.Challener Roe

My tribute will be to John Patrick Tierney, age 27 when he died. When I saw his picture, the first thing I could think of was his parents. I am honored to be able to pay tribute to their son for them.
