In exactly one month from today, we will be remembering the lives of 2,996 lives lost in one of the deadliest attacks on American soil. We all may have our own opinions of what happened on 9/11, but we can all agree that the number of lives lost is beyond tragic.
On the fifth anniversary of this disaster, The BigNewsDay Blog will join hundreds of other blogs in paying tribute to the victims of 9/11. I am calling on all the members of this site to assist in this tribute. The concept of the tribute is to dedicate our blogs to individuals who lost their lives because of the attacks on that day.
On 9/11/2006, the BigNewsDay Blog will be dedicated to the life of James Thomas Murphy who was a 35 year old New Jersey resident that perrished on that day. I urge all of you to use google or any other search engine to learn more about Mr. Murphy. I would like to have several blog entries that discuss him from different perspectives, but I would like to avoid the use of politics in the entries. I'm sure political discussions will crop up in the commens sections, but we should all refrain as much as possible for that day.
Please pay a visit to the host site for this tribute. I believe this was a wonderful idea, and I feel honored to take part in it.
