Here is the information, cut and paste, from the orginator of the idea. I have signed up - will you?
I’d like 2,995 blogging volunteers to help me with a tribute to the victims of 9/11. If you’d like to participate, you’ll be assigned the name of someone who was murdered on September 11, 2001. Then on September 11, 2006 you’ll post your own tribute to that person. It can be anything you want it to be: a photo tribute, an essay, a remembrance, a poem…it’s up to you. Then link back to a page I will create which will give the names of all 2,996 victims and links to the blogs that will remember them that day.
But, and this is critical, I don’t want any of us to remember the murderers. Do not refer to the terrorists. Or their organization. Or their goals. Let them fade into nothing. Let them be forgotten. Remember those worth remembering.
What help do I need? A lot.
I need 2,995 bloggers who are willing to participate for one day.
I need people to pass on this message to others, because 2,995 people don’t read this blog.
I need a name for this goofy thing.
I need some sort of graphic or banner we can all drop in our entries.
And I need suggestions as to how to make this work.
I left a comment at the blog to which the title of this entry is linked. An update was published that links to another blog, 2996. Visit either blog and offer to help in any way that you can. Thank you.
I consider it a great honor to participate in this project.
Update! I have my assignment:
James M. Roux

Thank you DC Roe.
