Project 2996

Project 2996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.

Dale Roe is the man behind Project 2996, a labor of love he began in 2006. Dale set out to create a “blog burst” by encouraging bloggers to post a tribute to one or more of the 2,996 victims of 9/11. He felt it was critical to remember their names rather than their murderers. Their barbarism will stand as their shame for all eternity.

On that horrible day, in the face of such great sorrow, we united as a people.

On September 11, 2006, more than 3,000 bloggers joined together to remember the victims of 9/11. Last year, I created tributes for eighteen of those 2,996.

This year, I will again remember a life taken on that day. The victims were someone’s mother, father, brother, sister, husband, wife…

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funeral of the children.”—President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
