Blogger D. Challenger Roe began Project 2,996 as a way to bring bloggers from around the world together to remember and pay tribute to the victims of Sept 11, 2001.
The point of the project is to celebrate and remember the LIVES of those who were lost rather than focusing on the tragedy of that day.
