(Detroit News Watch) – Eighteen years later, Americans from all walks of life pause to remember the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks killing nearly 3,000 people.
On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists used planes on to crash into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field.
Michigan politicians took to Twitter Wednesday morning remembering to #NeverForget while the city of Detroit held its 9/11 memorial ceremony in Campus Martius.
Here are some of their tweets below:

The last structure removed from Ground Zero after the attacks on 9/11 is displayed in the @Sept11Memorial. It serves as a symbol of strength & resilience outlasting great tragedy.

18 years ago the course of our nation was forever changed. Terrorists shook us to our very core – killing nearly three thousand of our brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, and heroes.

On 9/11 we remember the nearly 3,000 Americans in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania who lost their lives due to acts of terror by truly evil monsters. A few days after the attacks, I went to Ground Zero to honor the fallen & thank the first responders pic.twitter.com/WjapCfA5kW

September 11, 2001 was a Tuesday. I remember because that’s the day the senior staff of the @AFLCIO met in the executive conference room on the 8th floor at 815 16th Street. The room has one of the great views in Washington, overlooking the White House across Lafayette Square.
