ANSI Holds Special Tribute in Memory of 9/11

New York, Sep 11, 2002

To commemorate the tragic events of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States, the American National Standards Institute held a special tribute earlier today, in both its New York and Washington, DC offices.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., employees gathered and were given the opportunity to view the various televised events commemorating the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. In a strong show of support, staff gathered together, some sharing comments and experiences and others just sharing each other's company during this emotional time.

To further memorialize the day and pay their respects to the thousands of victims who perished on September 11th, ANSI staff observed a moment's silence for each of the hijacked planes:

8:46 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11, carrying 92 people hits the north tower.
9:02 a.m. United Airlines Flight 175, carrying 65 people hits the south tower.
9:43 a.m. American Airlines Flight 77, carrying 60 people, crashed into the Pentagon.
10:10 a.m. United Airlines Flight 93, also hijacked and carrying 44 people, crashes in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh.

The American National Standards Institute remembers those victims of September 11th 2001 and wishes to share its thoughts and prayers with the victim's families, friends and loved ones during what is a very difficult time. We also applaud the dedicated men and women who gave their time and efforts during this past year of rescuing and rebuilding, and who have provided comfort and endless care to the families, friends and loved ones of the victims.
