September 11th, 2006

I can't believe that it's been five years, but at the same time it also seems like it's been... forever ago. I'm not one of those people that need Hollywood to remind me what happened on September 11th, 2001 so I will not be seeing the latest movie to come out.

I will not put any of my money into Hollywood's liberal anti-American pockets.

At a friend's site I noticed a link that she has up and I joined in. When you sign up you are assigned an American that was murdered on September 11th. I got an email with my person, and some facts about him. I also looked him up online and found out a few other things, and saw that he has a lot of people that love him and that miss him.

I'll do a journal entry on him on September 11th - as will all the people that have signed up will be doing.

There are about 1,400 people that has signed up so far. There's no reason why YOU can't sign up and spend a few minutes to pay your respects to an American that was killed on that horrible day.

From the site:

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.

As a post script here after reviewing this entry.... take a look at the animals on the upper right of this post. THEY HATE US AND ONLY WANT TO KILL US. Please.... vote RED in 2006.

I started crying when I was reading the posts from my guy's family, he was well loved. That's going to be one of the hardest things I've ever had to write.

September 11th gets me hard every time so this will be rough - but an honor.
