    Project 2996 – Sharon Carver Orginally Posted 9/11/10 

    On September 11, 2001 Sharon Carver was sitting in her office at the Pentagon when a hijacked plane hit the building killing her.  She was only 38 years old.  She was civilian accountant for the Army while working towards her master’s degree in accounting.  She lived with her family in Waldorf, MD.  The days after the attack her nephew was interviewed by the local news, they were still holding out hope that she survived the attack. One of many heartbreaking scenes that played out for days afterwards. 

    A life that was cut too short.  A life that will not include grandchildren or growing old.  A life that will no longer include the annual family vacations.  She was days back from a family outing to Disney World. A family is now missing a loving daughter, sister, and aunt.  The Pentagon is missing a dedicated employee, and her friends are missing her personality, her humor, and that amazing smile of hers. 

    Sharon believed in education and public service.  Traits that we should all aspire to.  She was dedicated to her family and her country. 

    “You are truly missed. I remember your kind and warm spirit. You brightened the halls of Anacostia with your smile.”


    To Sharon’s family, there are no words to express our sympathies to you.  May God Bless you and know that Sharon is watching over you and smiling.

    Project 2996 John Frederick Rhodes Originally Posted 9/11/09 

    Early Tuesday morning on 9.11.01 John “Jack” Rhodes made his way from Howell, NJ to the offices of AON Corporation on the 92nd floor of 2 World Trade Center. It was a beautiful morning in New York City. The summer humidity had come to end, but the chill of the fall had yet to set in. There was barely a cloud in the sky.

    The beauty of that morning did not last long for New Yorkers. Shortly before 9 am, the first of two planes crashed into The World Trade Center. The innocence of our beliefs that our shores protected us was shattered. Within just a few short hours, four planes were hijacked, crashed into three buildings, a field in Pennsylvania, and both towers collapsed and the Pentagon was still burning. 2996 innocent people were brutally murdered. More than 200 from AON alone. America had been attacked.

     John “Jack” Frederick Rhodes was among the dead. Jack was among other things, a husband and father. He was man who was described as a person who loved life and loved his family. His life was cut short at the age of 57. He still had so much life yet to live. He was not able to welcome the new family members over the past eight years. His plans for retirement with his lovely wife Linda will not happen. His daughter no longer has her daddy; and every girl needs her daddy. No matter what age she is.

    In the past eight years your family has found a way to move on. To smile and laugh again. To remember your happy times and to hold the sweet memories close without feeling the overwhelming loss of your senseless murder. Just as you would want them to do. Jack, we want to make a pledge to your memory. We will never forget the sacrifice that you made. We will honor your loss and we will honor your family by doing everything that we can to protect all Americans moving forward. Our pledge to you is that we will do everything within our power to make sure that no other person loses his life to a twisted and dangerous sense of God’s will, and no other families will feel the pain that yours has experienced. Rest in Peace Mr. Rhodes. While you cannot wrap your arms around your family, we will. Our love and support goes to your family not just today, but always.

    Project 2996 

    Project 2996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.  Dale Roe is the man behind Project 2996, a labor of love he began in 2006.  Dale set out to create a “blog burst” by encouraging bloggers to post a tribute to one or more of the 2,996 victims of 9/11.  He felt it was critical to remember their names rather than their murderers. Their barbarism will stand as their shame for all eternity.

    On that horrible day in the face of such great sorrow, we united as a people.

    On September 11, 2006, more than 3,000 bloggers joined together to remember the victims of 9/11.  Last year, I created tributes for eighteen of those 2,996.

    This year, I will again remember a life taken on that day.  The victims were someone’s mother, father, brother, sister, husband, wife…

    “Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funeral of the children.”—President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
