IMAO: 2,996

IMAO pointed this out. If you’re a blogger, consider signing up. I am number 1221, so there is a need for 1775 more of us. In retrospect, that’s a rather uncanny numeric coincidence.

Here’s the gist:

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.

I cannot think of a more fitting way to remember the nearly 3000 victims of that fateful day, and count myself proud to be among them.
