"The tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, will forever be etched into our hearts, and the memories displayed at the 9/11 Memorial Museum are a solemn reminder that life is precious," said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. "This year, we will bring the 9/11 Memorial Museum to audiences at home and honor the loved ones whose lives were cut short, the heroes who sacrificed, the survivors who persevered, and the countless families who are forever changed."
