Categories for the 9/11 project?

+4 votes
I am working on the Sept 11 Project. There are categories for each plane, the pentagon and each building. There are stickers for Victims, First Responders Perpetrators. But there is no landing category for those killed who were not associated with one building or plane.  I have been to the site in New York City before and after the disaster. People on the ground were killed.  I just came across a resident immigrant who was a food handler. We can only imagine where he was. He could have been a food truck operator. Should these two examples be in the same category. Downtown Manhattan Victims? but that is everyone who was killed. Victims on the Ground?

That's a tough challenge indeed. As great an idea as this project is, I believe that the biggest challenge will be, not only to sort out the categories, but to figure out who and which ones go where.

My Grandfather was one of the Construction Workers when the WTC was being built. He hauled material to and from the site. I remember him telling me a little about the construction.

I've also got 2 NYPD Cousin's who were fortunate enough to survive the second tower coming down. They were trying to evacuate the second tower and, when they realized it was falling, they ran out while helping who they could on the way.

I was born in NYC and still have allot of family still there.

This was a horrible event... :-((

There is a category for this! The category you are looking for is Category: September 11th Victims. It states on the page that "This category serves as the landing level category for those individuals who were victims of the September 11th attacks...In the event of first responders, or those who perished outside of a building or aircraft, please list the profiles in this category and add any other applicable category..."
