Today and always, sending all of my love to NYC. #NeverForget

If you guys remember, it rained like crazy the night before. I was on the last flight out from New York to LA. We sat on the tarmac in the pouring rain for so long. Someone asked if any of us could get off the plane and go back to the city and fly out of NYC the next day, meaning Tuesday 9/11. As you know, the policy of the airlines is not to indulge this. I landed back from New York City at LAX in the middle of the night. A handful of hours later, I was woken up with the news of the terrorist attack. Maybe what I remember most was calling a friend of mine who worked in Midtown to see if she was okay. She told me everyone was still working in the office. They hadn’t had a lot of time to follow the news (busy day) and in true New Yorker fashion, she thanked me for checking in on her and said she would talk to me later. She did. She called me soon after, shaking, terrified, and wanted to discuss how they were all mobilizing. All my New York friends (yes, including the late, great Joan Rivers) were constantly working with Ground Zero folks, helping out every way they could. NOW, the animosity from so many neighbors in the southern part of America is especially painful. There was a time when we were all united not so very long ago. There was a time when the world was united with us. Can we remember THAT? #NeverForget

Never forget the innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001. And never forget the heroes and first-responders who ran into danger to try and save so many lives…and to those heroes who lost their lives doing so – during and post-9/11. #NeverForget #USA #WorldTradeCenter #ThePentagon #United93

As a kid who arrived in NYC in 1988… they were the biggest buildings I had ever seen. Massive, imposing towers… I loved being at the base looking up and I loved having dinner at the top, looking into forever. For years after… I would avoid going downtown or even looking where they should have been. My heart is with the families of those lost that day, and the brave men and women who rushed in to help us all. #neverforget #september11th
