Legacy: What Project 2996 Is Doing for the 13th Anniversary of September 11th

What is Project 2996 Doing for the 13th Anniversary?
The 13th Anniversary of September 11th is fast approaching,
what Project 2996 is doing to honor of this? We‘re going with
a three-pronged approach
First of all, we‘re continuing to pursue our goal of at least one onling tribute for
each and every September 11th victim. More tributes are welcome!
Second, we‘re continuing with the Project 2996 Group Board on
Pinterest, where we want to see at least one pin for every victim
(ideally tied to a tribute).
Third. Well, this will come later in the presentation.
Keeping the Memory of the Victims Alive..
As time goes by there are more and more things to crowd out the memory of
the victims and their families.
None of us want to see the victims and their families remembered on some 30
second spot in the news outlets, buried as filler that nobody cares about!
We want to make something positive out of that terribly tragic day!
The Legacy of September 11th
Working on some pins for the Project 2996 group pinboard, I realized that a lot
has been done to recognize the lives of the victims and to keep their memory
alive. Scholarships, foundations, and charities have been created in their
honor. Buildings, parks, streets, and schools have been named after them. All
of this has been done in efforts to build a legacy. At Project 2996, we‘d like to
build a legacy of our own and are pleased to announce....
A place where we‘ll
collect pins about
the victims where
their legacy has
been and is being
Dale and I have learned a few lessons from our involvement in Project 2996
that we‘d like to apply to this year‘s annivesary...
We want all of the victims remembered in all three of our project campaigns but
we realize that this absolutely won‘t happen between now and the end of
September 11th. So we‘re proposing that out efforts be concentrated throughth
the entire year. Lets set a side some time daily, weekly, in whatever chunks
work best for you, but lets get it done! Lets build on the interestest of the
anniversary and remember the victims and celebrte the legacy that they‘ve built
and are building!

How to Participate
You can leave a comment on the board in Pinterest informing us that
you‘d like to participate.
You can leave a wall post on the Facebook page.
You can leave a comment on the Contact Me Page of our Web Page.
Look for more information in the coming days about pinning and so on
And don‘t forget that we still need more tributes to reach our goal of a
‚real‘ online tribute for every victim by a ‚real‘ person and that our
classic Project 2996 Group Pinboard is going on towards its goal of
pins for all the victims
Playing With Numbers
I confess, I‘m facinated by numbers and I don‘t believe that I‘m the only one.
The number thirteen (13) has long had an „unlucky“ image associated with it,
lots of people recoil at the very mention of the number, thinking that it brings
Given the nature of what happened on September Eleventh, we can‘t really
change that, but lets put some Legacy into this year‘s commemorations. All of
the victims have left some kind of Legacy, let us see if we can‘t find it and let
the world know!
Since this is the second group pinboard we‘ve started a lot of information is available
based on our first group pinboard...
