Project 2,996

To understand Project 2,996, you need to go to THIS LINK and catch the vision its creator had in mind.  The idea is to make sure that the very ordinary people who died as a result of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, be remembered in a positive way.  
I did not choose to do a new tribute this year, perhaps because of laziness; although I tell myself that after ten years, it gets harder to find sufficient information on the Internet about these people to give them a proper tribute.  If I didn't have such a very busy day today, I might perhaps take the time to try and find another person to whom I could give tribute, even at this late date.    
However, I'd like to give you the links to all the tributes I have done for this project.  Keep in mind these are people who got up and went to work on what seemed like an ordinary day.  It could happen to any of us on any "ordinary" day. 
You might want to read the comments on these entries; some of the friends and relatives left comments thanking me for the tributes to their loved ones.  That made it worth the effort.

Wow. This is great. These people become so much more real. It is hard to take it all in.

I have done this in years past too. This year it totally snuck up on me and I feel kind of guilty for not participating. This is a hard year for me.
