A Unique Way To Pay Homage On September 11


armsofproject2996Each year, on the 11th of September, we pause to remember the horror of that day in 2001.

On September 11th in 2006, however, a unique tribute began. One that involved over 3,000 bloggers. Rather than mentioning the killers (which the mainstream media seems to have limited themselves to), bloggers chose to remember the victims.

This year, I’m proud to announce that Grand Rants will be participating in this year’s remembrance.  On September 11th, we will be remembering individuals by writing about them here. In my case, it will be rather personal as I will be writing about two wonderful people I had the privilege to know. 

I’d like to invite you all to visit us on that date, as we “re-humanize” the term “9/11” by introducing you to people who, without warning, became part of the most  horrific incident to take place on our soil.

This world-wide blogging event is being coordinated by Dale Challener Roe who is still seeking additional bloggers to participate in this event. If you are a blogger, or if you have a web site, I’d like to invite you to join in Dale’s effort to make sure each one of the 2,996 victims of September 11, 2001 is properly remembered.

This has been a particularly difficult year for Americans, what with the economy and uncertainty about the future. However, it’s times like these that bring us together as one.  This is one of those times where we can make a strong and symbolic gesture to the families of the victims and, indeed, to the  rest of the world: “We haven’t forgotten… and we never will.”

Come join us on 9/11, won’t you?

Thank you.
