It goes without saying that we’ll always remember 9/11–no one can ever forget something that was so traumatic and heartbreaking, but that also spawned such a wave of unity and positivity as a nation in our work to rise above the tragedy and move forward.
Part of what 9/11 did was remind us that we’re not invincible–but that we are strong, patriotic, and team players. Keep your loved ones and those who rescued and fought for them in mind not just today, but everyday. We don’t need to tell you to “never forget,” because we know you won’t. Let’s be real: America’s pretty awesome all of the time (and so are you!). Celebrate and remember it.
Today, on the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, we’re paying tribute to our fallen heroes and loved ones, and so are your favorite celebs.
