It has been nine years since the tragic events of Sept 11, 2001. Several years ago, on the anniversary of the tragic day where 2996 people lost their lives, blogger D. Challenger Roe has headed up Project 2,996 -- an exercise in bringing bloggers together to remember the victims of Sept 11, 2001.
The idea was for bloggers to take the time to get to know one of the victims and to celebrate and remember their lives rather than focus on the tragedy that befell them that fateful day.
I took the time to find information and remember three different individuals over the years. Each year, I go back and re-read the posts about them, think about the lives they lived and the differences they made before their lives were cut short.
The posts about the people are listed below.
Raymond Meisenheimer - Remembering Raymond Meisenheimer (2006)
Deora Francis Bodley - Remembering The Lives of Two Heros (2007)
David Reed Gamboa Bradhorst & his fathers Daniel Brandhorst and Ronald Gamboa - Project 2996 - Sept 11, 2008 (2008)

Despite the fact that loved ones are lost, they continue to live on in our memories and hearts.
