Refresh for updates: Twenty years after the horrific attacks of 9/11, America remembered the terror of planes turned into missiles, the nearly 3,000 lives lost and the courage displayed in response. From the memorial sites in New York, Shanksville, PA, at the Pentagon itself and across the land and the world, voices of commemoration rose up — and Hollywood was no exception.
In so many ways, #neverforget was the deep sentiment as well as the hashtag of the day
As thousands of Americans, plus Presidents current and past (but no Donald Trump), and Vice Presidents past and present offered their salutes and respect to the fallen, cable news and broadcast networks offered wall to wall coverage of today’s events. Many of who spoke today, such as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and former POTUS George W. Bush, noted the unity that emerged out of the attacks and the current politics of 2021.

Will never forget this day. Will never forget the lives lost. Sending love and prayers to the familes and loved ones of the fallen. 💔❤🙏🏿 #NeverForget
Today we remember all those who tragically lost their lives on 9/11. We also pay tribute to the brave first responders who rushed to help those in need and to our courageous military personnel who, in the wake of 9/11, served and sacrificed so greatly in defense of our nation.

Today we honor the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who died on September 11, 2001, and the heroes who have always run towards danger to do what’s right. Let’s never forget that day, and let’s never take them for granted. pic.twitter.com/VkN11wZAMh
On this anniversary of 9/11, I find myself remembering the shock and anguish we all experienced with painfully deep sadness. Vivid images of the skyline I grew up loving so much, suddenly changed forever. pic.twitter.com/eSoaaNwf8X

20 years ago, the city we love showed us its resilience, strength, and hope. To everyone affected on that day or in its aftermath, wherever you are, we are here for you. #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/W4zhoOJz5T
BOTH were terrorist attacks against this country where people died because of malignant ideology and nationalist “pride”.
Let’s have the conversation.
Only those sympathetic to the perpetrators of 1/6 will have a problem with this tweet.
