How did Ree Drummond pay tribute to the 20th Anniversary of 9/11?

The Pioneer Woman is a callback to the America of yore and how the tradition of uniting families around the dinner table continues to be magical. Drummond always has good vibes and sends her best wishes to all of her followers. On September 11, the Food Network star took some time to pause and share her thoughts on the 20th anniversary of that horrible day.

“None of us will ever, ever forget the details of that day…where we were, who we were with, and the despair we felt as the realities of the terror attacks unfolded before our eyes,” she posted. “I remember it like it was yesterday. I also remember the way America came together in a common anger and grief.”

Drummond continued, “I pray for comfort for everyone who lost a child, a sibling, a parent, a partner, a friend, or any loved one on September 11, 2001. I can’t imagine carrying that pain all these years, and I’m holding them in my heart today.”
