Today marks 13 years since the heart-breaking September 11th terrorist attacks in New York City in 2001. As done every year since then President Obama, along with Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, remembered everyone who lost their lives with a moment of silence.
The entire country is paying tribute to every life lost 13 years ago, and all of the emergency responders including fire and police departments, with messages of remembrance, prayer, and support on social media, including celebrities everywhere.
See how the stars are honoring the 13th September 11th Anniversary below:
