The National September 11 Memorial
On Sept. 11, 2011, the National September 11 Memorial will open to the public. The Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
What has been created is an enduring act of commemoration. Sharp is proud to work closely with The National September 11 Memorial & Museum and to have played a small part in making the Memorial happen. As a part of our relationship, we have provided all of the video technology including nine Sharp LCD monitors in a Video Wall. This will provide a way for people who visit the Memorial from around the world to be educated on the events of 9/11 and to commemorate that time in our collective history.
That is what we want our ongoing sponsorship of the Memorial to help create – a continuous record of the present and future of this place. A welcome to everyone who comes there. Who comes to see and to listen, to learn, to participate in the shared experience of looking back and looking ahead.
Technology's highest purpose is to bring people together. As a technology company, there can be no greater mission for Sharp, and for all of us who believe in what has been accomplished through the National September 11 Memorial.
Thank you very much,
CEO & Chairman of the Board
