While hundreds, including President Obama and former President George W. Bush, gathered at Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan to remember the victims of the September 11, 2001 attack, Minaj took to Twitter to share her thoughts.
“Sending my love to the victims of 9/11. Remembering the heroism. The brave men & women. The troops. We become alive in the time of fear,” the rapper wrote.
Several Caribbean and Latin American migrants were among the near 3,000 to die in the WTC attack ten years ago Sunday.
At Ground Zero, Obama and Bush joined Mayor Mike Bloomberg, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Governors Andrew Cuomo of New York and Christopher Christie of New Jersey for the remembrance and the opening of the memorial.
“Ten years later, I’d say America came through this thing in a way that was consistent with our character,” Obama said in an interview with NBC News. “Some things haven’t happened as quickly as they needed to. But overall, we took the fight to al- Qaeda, we preserved our values, we preserved our character.”
The anniversary was also remembered at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania.
