It’s hard to believe that the tragic events of September 11 happened 14 years ago. Politicians all over the country were just some of the many who took to twitter to share their thoughts on the event that changed the United States forever.
Though it’s been well over a decade since the terrorist attack that took the lives of over 3,000 people in the United States, the pain is still fresh for many who were irreparably affected by September 11, 2001. Many politicians, including President Barack Obama, felt the horror of 9/11 like anyone else, and penned sweet words on Twitter to honor the victims who lost their lives on that tragic day.
The events of September 11 affect everyone in a different way, but the one thing tying all Americans together is their deep respect and love for those who were murdered in the Twin Towers, at the Pentagon, and when Flight 93 was downed. There is great admiration for those first responders who immediately risked their own lives to help survivors, and anyone who fought to protect their safety. It’s only fitting that people, especially politicians, like John McCain and Jeb Bush, would reach out to millions on social media to let their words be heard.
14 years after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, we honor those we lost. We salute all who serve to keep us safe. We stand as strong as ever.

We should all take time today to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11, their families & the troops who've kept us safe. #NeverForget

Today my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the terrible attacks 14 years ago. America will not, and must not, ever forget.

So many of those running for the presidential office in 2016 shared that reverence for September 11 — which they should! It’s lovely that Bill Clinton had thoughts to share although he’s no longer in any office — although he could be First Guy someday very soon! We’re sure that more and more political voices will be adding their best wishes to all on social media throughout this day.
HollywoodLifers, help us wish a day of healing and love to everyone on September 11.
