Celebrities Take A Moment To Remember 9/11
It’s hard to believe it’s been 17 years since 9/11.
The stunning attack on our country and the heroism that followed it are still fresh in our minds.
The same is clearly true of many celebrities, who took to Twitter today to mourn, to feel, to remember.
See some of the strongest tributes (below):
We will always remember everyone we lost on 9/11, thank the first responders who keep us safe, and honor all who defend our country and the ideals that bind us together. There's nothing our resilience and resolve can’t overcome, and no act of terror can ever change who we are.

In the wake of darker moments in our history, our spirit has become mightier. The bonds that unite us have become thicker.
Seventeen years after the 9/11 attacks, may we continue to live that legacy in our words and our deeds, every day. In America, we can overcome anything.

I had the privilege of growing up in NYC, as did my parents. These streets made me who I am and they continue to inspire me like no place else on the planet. NYC, I love you and I’m nothing without you. #NeverForget

On #September11th, I rushed to Sam’s school to make sure he was safe. Then I went to give blood but was turned away because so many had already donated.
