When looking back on 9/11 and what it means to her, “Jeopardy!” host Mayim Bialik offered up a tender remembrance on Friday.
Bialik, who was named as one of the game show’s replacement hosts, took to Twitter with a photo. It shows two beams of light going straight up to the sky. The image reflects where the Twin Towers stood in New York City before the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
In her brief note, the “Jeopardy!” host mentions the years of distance between then and now.
‘Jeopardy!’ Fans Offer Their Own 9/11 Remembrances On Twitter
Some of Bialik’s followers on Twitter responded after seeing the “Jeopardy!” host’s post.
Another “Jeopardy!” fan, DaveT, wrote, “Yes, unreal then and still. I was at my office asking why the Internet was so slow and watching something on a colleague’s screen that I assumed was a video hoax, and then…”
Christopher Cozby said, “So sad. All those people and the firefighters and police officers.” His words were followed by crying and broken-heart emojis.
Right now, Bialik is hosting “Jeopardy!” episodes by herself. The game show is looking for another host after Mike Richards as host and executive producer.
But at this moment, at this time in American history, she joins millions who are remembering 9/11 and what happened on that sad day.
Two 9/11 Victims Identified Days Before 20-Year Anniversary
While there are 9/11 remembrances taking place around the United States, the work of identifying victims goes on.
Two more victims of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center have been identified. This marks the first time since 2019 that this has happened.
New York City Chief Medical Examiner Barbara A. Sampson made the announcement about the victims of the 9/11 attacks. As of now, 1,100 people still have not been ID’d.
“Twenty years ago, we made a promise to the families of World Trade Center victims to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to identify their loved ones, and with these two new identifications, we continue to fulfill that sacred obligation,” Sampson said, according to the ABC7.
Forensic technology has advanced, allowing coroners to do their work faster.
They identified Dorothy Morgan, 47, a Marsh & McLennan broker, by her DNA. It was found in 2001 but officials were not able to identify it until now. A second person also was identified but that person’s family asked that the name be withheld.
Their work will go on for years after the 9/11 remembrances on Saturday.
