Fifteen years ago, the world witnessed one of the most horrific terrorist attacks on American soil. September 11, 2001 will forever live in infamy and for those who lost loved ones, it’s also a day for mourning.

As seen in previous years, the hashtag #NeverForget was a trending topic on social media as the world remembered the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Several artist went on Twitter and Instagram to pay their respects to the fallen heroes and civilians who perished on that fateful day.

Alicia Keys posted a picture on his Instagram account of two beaming lights on where the Twin Towers once stood in New York City. My beautiful city / Stronger than ever / Nothing can stop us / Stronger together / May Love, tolerance, and acceptance / Guide us forever,” reads the caption.

Fabolous actually posted a photo of the Twin Towers on his IG page. He wrote in part, “Our city & country was forced to stand tall as those Towers once did & always remember the fallen soldiers of this day. The date 9/11 will always be symbolic to me for more reasons than one… My condolences go to the families affected by this tragic event.”

I remember being a kid and 9/11 being a moment in my life. I was in Atlanta and I remember being in class and everyone having a Cold feeling in there heart like someone in your family just got shot. The air taste different. I was so young I couldn't understand what was happening. The fact that the U S was under attack. As I got older each year it became more and more of a reality to me of the importance of unity. That was a time when whether you were black or white or Spanish or Asian you knew that a lost is a lost. Moments like these bring people together. So that shows me that it is possible for us to come together. Just gotta be more consistent with the love. You can't be selective with respect. From with Love . God Bless the towers.
