Yoko Ono, Diddy, Maren Morris and More Remember 9/11 With Heartfelt Messages
Sept. 11 will forever be a date to reflect and remember in the United States. Marking the 17th year anniversary of the deadliest foreign attack on U.S soil in history, the date has evolved into one of remembrance for those lost 17 years ago.
As ceremonies are held at New York City's own 9/11 Memorial Plaza -- as well as in many other locations nationwide -- a few celebrities also took a moment to reflect on the date by sharing their thoughts and prayers on Twitter, paying their respects to both the city, the country and those who were lost that day.
Check some of the heartfelt messages below.

Wrote this song when I was 18-about knowing my hands were mine & what I did w them was my choice no matter what. I was honored when it was played as an anthem to bring ppl peace/hope during 9/11. Let us remember those we lost that day & we are never broken https://t.co/7LXCdKu3Ht— Jewel (@jeweljk) September 11, 2018

Today is September 11. 17 years ago, the Twin Towers fell. I don’t have to pause to remember because I think of it every single day. Rest In Peace, all who perished and know we have not forgotten.— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) September 11, 2018
They just stopped everything at the airport and someone played Amazing Grace on bagpipes to honor the 9/11 victims. That really hit home. #NeverForget ----— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) September 11, 2018
We will always remember everyone we lost on 9/11, thank the first responders who keep us safe, and honor all who defend our country and the ideals that bind us together. There's nothing our resilience and resolve can’t overcome, and no act of terror can ever change who we are.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 11, 2018
