Twenty-Nine-Ninety-Six

While that number might look like a date in the Schlock Mercenary universe, that isn't why it's important. That is the number of victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, five years ago. But numbers lie to us, hiding real meaning. The loss of these individuals is an ache still felt worldwide. They were not numbers in life, and should not be numbers today. The 2996 website seeks to honor the fallen as individuals, eulogizing and paying tribute with the help of over 3,000 volunteer bloggers -- each of whom signed up to write about one of our lost. From the site... "We will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers." UPDATE: The original site exceeded its bandwidth and was turned off by ehostpros.com. A mirror can be found here.
