Thanks to Evil Mommy, on whose blog I found this information.
2996 is a project being coordinated by D. C. Roe to honor the 2996 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. On September 11, 2006, bloggers from around the world will post tributes on their blogs to honor the victims of the attacks.
I'll be honoring Stanley L. Temple, age 77, a resident of New York City, who was killed in the World Trade Center. As I post this, 1388 bloggers have volunteered. Consider writing a tribute - instructions can be found here.
Please spread the word.
8/13/06: Up to 1742 - please continue to spread the word.
