Monday 12 September 2011
The nation stopped yesterday and remembered the terrorist attacks from a decade ago that
changed everything, as former President George W. Bush joined current President Barack Obama
at the unveiling of the 9/11 Memorial in New York City.
Paul Simon sang an acoustic version of "The Sound of Silence" at the event, while others
from Hollywood chimed in via Twitter. We've posted a few of their responses below, as well
as an ABC News tribute set to Beyonce's "I Was Here".
Eva Longoria: "My heart goes out to all the families of the 9/11 victims. God Bless
America!" Kim Kardashian: "My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families affected by
the awful tragedy of 9/11." Mariah Carey: "9/11: A time to honor, reflect. A decade later, nation remembers." Ashton Kutcher: "I got mad respect for the people that suffered in 9/11." Lea Michele: "Feeling so thankful and blessed today. And so happy to be with all my
family and friends in this city I love with all my heart. NYC is one of the most strong and
beautiful places in the world. I feel so blessed and proud today to have been born and raised
in this city."
