Twelve years ago today (September 11) Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Tuesday, Americans of all ages and professions are taking to social media to commemorate those we have lost, as well as to remember.
Those who live or have lived in New York City expressed pride in their city in the wake of the anniversary of the attacks. Ben Stiller tweeted, “Glad to be in NY on 9/11. Remembering all those who lost someone,” while Joan Rivers tweeted a picture in which she is flanked by firemen, saying, “Very proud to be with two of New York’s Finest on 9-11.”
