I found this link on a blog I visit and decided to sign up for the project. Please, if you have a blog of your own, sign up and help.

On September 11 of this year, bloggers from all over the world will unite and remember the VICTIMS of 9/11, not their murderers. If you are not familiar with the 2996 project, here is information:

2,996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.

On September 11, 2006, 2,996 volunteer bloggers will join together for a tribute to the victims of 9/11. Each person will pay tribute to a single victim.

We will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers.

If you would like to help out, either by pledging to post a tribute on your own blog, or by offering your services to promote this cause, just leave a comment here and I’ll email you the name of a victim.

Then, on 9/11/2006, you will post a tribute to that victim on your blog.

But, and this is critical, the tributes should celebrate the lives of these people–kind of like a wake. Over the last 5 years we’ve heard the names of the killers, and all about the victim’s deaths. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate those who died. Forget the murderers, they don’t deserve to be remembered. But some people who died that day deserve to be remembered–2,996 people.

To date, 2,565 blogs have signed up. Let's get that last 431.

NOTE: In order to sign up, please don't leave a comment on my blog, follow the links above.

Paramount cuts ties with Tom Cruise - Aug 23, 2006 - Paramount cuts ties with Tom Cruise - Aug 23, 2006

I can't believe it. I don't mean this in a bad way, in fact I'm pretty happy to see it. People seem to think that because someone is 'famous' they can get away with certain behavior and that belief tends to be perpetuated by the lack of (visible) consequences for their actions. Negative actions should breed negative consequences. Nice to see for one famous person, they finally did.
