Today’s the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States, and I don’t have much to say about it, except that my heart goes out to all the people who were affected by that terrible day.
Here’s a roundup of tweets from American Idols (and Glee’s Lea Michele who is in NYC right now) sharing their thoughts on the day.
Plus, watch a special tribute from Season 4 Idol alum, Anthony Fedorov called “What Freedom Costs”.
