Mariah Carey, Viola Davis and Kris Jenner lead celebrity tributes to mark the 20th anniversary of 9/11: ‘We’ll never forget’
Mariah Carey, Viola Davis and Kris Jenner were just a few of the many celebrities honoring the lives of the nearly 3,000 people who died 20 years ago in the September 11 attacks.
“On this anniversary of September 11, I remember the shock and anguish we all experienced with painful deep sadness. Vibrant images of the skyline I loved so much suddenly changed forever,” Mariah Carey wrote, captioning a Tribute in Light image where the World Trade Center used to be.
“I’m still amazed at how many innocent people are lost in the blink of an eye… gone forever but never to be forgotten. Thinking of all the families who, twenty years after that devastating and tragic moment in our history, are still mourning their loved ones. I send love and prayers to my fellow New Yorkers… and to all of us.”
Nineteen men hijacked four planes, which crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and finally a field in Somerset, County, Pennsylvania, killing a total of 2,977 people 20 years ago.
“On this anniversary of September 11, I remember the shock and anguish we all experienced with painful deep sadness. Vivid images of the skyline I loved so much suddenly changed forever,” Mariah Carey wrote, captioning the Tribute in Light where the World Trade Center stood.
Viola Davis shared a striking image of the Tribute of Light from just outside the city, as she shared a host of infographics about the attacks, with the names of the lives lost in each slide created by Instagram account @so.informed.
‘Will never forget this day. I will never forget the lives lost,” she wrote. “I send love and prayers to the families, loved ones of the fallen.”
Kris Jenner posted a shadow image of the towers with photos of the men, women and children who lost their lives that day.
“Take a moment this morning to remember and honor those who lost their lives, the families and friends who lost their loved ones, and the survivors of the horrific attacks of 9/11. We will never forget the sacrifices made by the firefighters, early responders and civilians who risked everything to help others in the most incredible and unforgettable demonstration of heroism.
“I will never forget that day, and my thoughts are with everyone who has lost someone they love. Life is so precious and today is a reminder for me to cherish every moment I have with those I love. We should show each other love, forgiveness and mercy and be grateful for the time we have together.”
‘Will never forget this day. I will never forget the lives lost,” she wrote. ‘Send love and prayers to the families, loved ones of the fallen’
