Stars from across the world have remembered the victims
of 9/11 on the 10th anniversary of the atrocity.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the worst terrorist
attack in America's history after two hijacked airplanes crashed into the Twin
Towers at New York's World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. A third slammed
into the Pentagon in Virginia and a fourth crash landed in Pennsylvania.

Now a whole host of famous faces have taken to their
Twitter blogs to pay tribute to the spirit of the American people.

Glee star Lea Michele, who was born in the Bronx, New
York, writes, “To all the families and people of New York affected by the
tragedies of 11 September my thoughts and prayers go out to you. NYC is one of
the most strong and beautiful places in the world. I feel so blessed and proud
today to have been born and raised in this city.”

Singer Josh Groban adds, “I can’t believe it has been 10
years. Stay safe and sound today, NYC. Neverforget,” and Rob Lowe tweets, “Today,
I remember. Today, I promise I will never forget. Never.”

Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden writes, “Sending a
prayer and good thoughts out to everyone who lost their lives or a loved one on
9/11 10 years ago. Respect. God bless.”

Actress Eliza Dushku states, “Never forget those we lost,
the heroes and prayers to the survivors/families. Love to all,” while Olivia
Wilde wrote, “10 years ago today, our shocked world marched together for Peace.
Let’s not forget that spirit. My heart goes out to all who have suffered.”

remembering911.” While Mena Suvari writes, “Thoughts and prayers to all of
