Earlier in the day, she posted this on Facebook:
Please watch this inspiring video as Col. Rob Maness reflects on his service in the Pentagon on September 11th. We need more inspiring patriots like this willing to help restore our great country. Proud to support Col. Maness in his campaign for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana.

Here is an excellent article about the 9/11 commemoration in New York City today:
9/11 victims’ families and New Yorkers commemorate 13th anniversary of terrorist attacks
Family members of the Sept. 11, 2011 attacks and the 1993 WTC bombing commemorated those who died with a reading of the names at the 9/11 Memorial on the 13th anniversary of those attacks. Moments of silence were also being held throughout the day to mark key moments during the 9/11 attacks.NEW YORK DAILY NEWSPublished: Thursday, September 11, 2014, 8:27 AMUpdated: Thursday, September 11, 2014, 1:27 PM
There are two photogalleries on the website that can be accessed here.
Thirteen years after the darkest day of his life, Philip Hayes trekked to the city all the way from California to remember his fire safety director father and the nearly 3,000 other victims of the 9/11 attacks.
“I took the red-eye flight and came straight here,” said Hayes, 60, whose retired firefighter dad, also named Philip Hayes, rescued children from a day care center near the World Trade Center before he was killed.
“My father died a hero with all the other people. It’s not something you just dismiss over time. I think it’s necessary and we should always come.”
Hayes was among hundreds of family members and friends who gathered at the sacred site Thursday to hail the city’s 9/11 heroes and pay tribute to the victims.
Some family members carried large photos of their loved ones. Others descended on the solemn site carrying bouquets of flowers, their faces etched in sadness.
As part of the now sad but familiar anniversary ritual, anguished relatives read the names of all the victims killed in New York, at the Pentagon and aboard Flight 93.
On this day in 2001, the city, the country, and the world united together in the face of unimaginable tragedy. Today, on the 13th anniversary of 9/11, we gather together once again to honor and remember the 2,983 men, women, and children who were killed in the attacks of 2001 and 1993. As part of the commemoration, please observe the following moments of silence:
8:46 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower.
9:03 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 77 through 85 of the South Tower.
9:37 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon.
9:59 a.m.: The South Tower collapses.
10:03 a.m.: After learning of the other attacks, passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 launch a counterattack on hijackers aboard their plane to try to seize control of the aircraft. In response, the hijackers crash the plane into an empty field near Shanksville, P.A.
10:28 a.m.: The North Tower collapses.
Later the 9/11 Memorial Facebook page posted a series of photos, including these two:
