SIGN UP SOON

I’ve signed up for a blogging memorial to the victims of 9/11 here. Just checked, there are approximately 2511 unassigned victims (brrhhh! Gives me the heebie-jeebies to put it like that!).

Take pen in hand, and raise your voices in lament.

Never forget. Never forgive.

Addendum: I was in error - it turns out that when I signed up, they were reassigning people to an extra blogger - Scott Rivette of woodleyyak will also be doing a tribute to Jane Ellen Baeszler as well.

All the spots were filled at least two weeks ago.

I don't think you are checking on the right page. All victims have been assigned.

OK, I just checked. They are allowing repeats. They must have had overflow and decided that they could allow for a second version.

But all victims will have at least one blogger write about them.....unless they forget, or don't fulfill their obligation.

I don't know how I could have missed that.

OT, check this video out.

Back on topic, I am sure you are familiar with Raving Atheists. I took a lot of heat for stating I'm doing a tribute.
Check this thread out.

I don't frequent that place anymore. I think most of them are just plain nuts.
You probably could've left out the moonbat crack.
Jesus, what a bunch of self-centered maroons there.
"Those who do not learn from history..." etc.

KA...Thanks for posting about this site; I had forgotten to bookmark it for Monday. I didn't volunteer to write about anyone; the loss of my friends is still too painful. I will have a post up on Monday. It's been very hard to write it.

Just do your best, dear.
If the pain's too much, don't worry about it. Don't harm yourself.

I don't see what you have against members there... some of them seem pretty correct about the situation. Especially Metman07's post about supporting a country just because it's a haven for followers of a religion, and his point about Judaism being just as big of a threat to secularism as the other religions.

I don't agree there should be this much focus on 9/11. People die every day, for causes just as pointless and stupid. It's a fact of life. To use it for a political agenda, or anything else it's been/are being used for, is wrong.

We'll all be stronger for it if we just accept that there's nothing we can do about it, and move on.

Not to mention BEAJ's stunning little gem of "fuck Arabs.".

I don't like how some of them handle themselves. For rationalists, they handle themselves irrationally. For another thing, I think most of them are full of shit.

Well, we're not supporting Israel for 1 thing. That's simplistic reductionism. It's a democracy, it's the only stabilizing country in the region, it's the only ally we have over there, the only reason it's a haven of any sort is because of some the horrible shit done to Jews. It's NOT a theocracy.
Israel is 25.6% secular, BTW.

It was a defining moment in history, epitomized by the mass slaughter of innocent people. Don't marginalize it. We as a nation haven't recovered from it, economically, emotionally, politically.
A lament for our dead is 1 of the many things that distinguish us from the other animals.

I'm the 1st to admit he gets a little carried away, but he links to & talks to Arabs. He's got a problem w/radical extremists. So do I.
