Important Update: A Moment to Remember, A Time to Never Forget
I went to the founding website for the 2996 project to check on the status. I found THIS POST , and even at my age, got a few goosebumps and a little sniffly. The founder of the project found that one of the signees for a name was 2 young men, Ben and Noah, aged 6 and 5 respectively. I almost fell out of my chair when I found out that…
these two young men (at the encouragement of their parents) created a weblog did an entry post, and did their tribute to their 9/11 victim: Lester Vincent Marino, aged 57. According to their new website, they are being taught about business. DCROE says he checked them out and they are the real deal. God, I hope so. We should all be encouraged that a 1st grader and his little brother want to be part of this memorial and that their folks are using their interest to get them involved and active as early as they are ready. There is hope out there folks. Go check their site…and their links-these kids have some pretty sharp parents. You’ll feel better…I do!
September 11, 2005 will mark the 5th anniversary of one of the most evil moments in the world’s history. A Coalition of Bloggers has been slowly forming, under the outstanding leadership, determination, and most humble of commitments of one DCROE. The “2996 Project” will culminate on September 11, 2006 when each member of the Coalition will publish a testimonial; a remembrance of a victim selected by DCROE and assigned to each of us who agreed to do this on our respective web blogs on behalf of one of our innocent fellow Americans, trying to live their lives the best they could, in a world that was (BEFORE that day) at relative peace with itself, or at least was trying very hard to be.
As the owner of three websites, I asked for DCROE to let me take three names. Each of these fine people will be memorialized according to the sites they were assigned to me by him. At NoEndButVictory.com, I will be remembering David Marc Sullins, who was murdered for being an American at the Trade Center. At HickPolitics.com, I will be remembering Jeffrey Collman who was murdered for not only being n American, but for wanting to work as a Flight Attendant on American Airlines flight 11, and at NobleDuty.org, I will be remembering Tatyana Bakalinskaya who was also murdered for being an American at the Trade Center.
There were 2,996 lives lost that day. Each of them will be remembered, by name, across the blogoshpere. There are but a few hundred names left, and if you can offer your website, PLEASE go sign up…right now this very minute.
CplM has done so for ASP, and he can comment here about that person.
If you don’t have a weblog but want to help, let one of us here know.
We owe them this much. We owe each other this much.
