Yesterday, First Lady Melania Trump shared these images on her Twitter account to commemorate the 17th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States. One picture showed her and the President standing at a doorway with two US marines.
Another photo shared earlier on showed the President and First Lady looking over a balcony at the Flight 93 National Memorial. In her message, the FLOTUS paid tribute to the people who lost their lives during the attack and mentioned how the events of 9/11 are a reminder of how strong the American people are.
A somber tribute at Flight 93 National Memorial this morning. We honor the many lost at the hands of evil on 9/11. It's a time to remember the strength of this nation & the power that comes from unity, leadership & courage. God Bless this great nation. #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/lDxx4ccwe3— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) September 11, 2018
She upset a lot of Americans
However, some people on social media feel that the images shared by the FLOTUS are inappropriate. According to most commentators, they feel posting images of themselves on this occasion is a distraction and does not highlight the spirit of the memorial.
To commemorate 9/11 you post an image of......yourselves. Ok.— Elizabeth Judd (@Emannjudd) September 11, 2018
Posting a pic of yourselves, that says it all— TRUMP ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE 🌊🌊 (@Patriciamoffat5) September 11, 2018
Quick tip: When posting about a tragedy, a photo of yourself is never a good choice. When in doubt, just an american flag will do.— Etienne Laurent (@atnlowran) September 11, 2018
Sorry but pictures of yourselves for every occasion and memorial are not appropriate— chris (@cdms80) September 11, 2018
Who in the world posts a picture of themselves to remember such a tragic day in history? Why not highlight some of the brave souls and family members directly affected that day?— Papaya (@payal_bhavsar23) September 11, 2018
Other people feel that images of some of the late victims or images of the memorials would have been more appropriate, seeing as represent the day and what it stands for in a better way.
Wow even today, people are so self absorbed they have to tweet vitriol comments instead of actually remembering what happened on this day 17 years ago. #noshame— LIKayLGM (@LIKayLGM) September 11, 2018
But not everybody shares this sentiment, and some others believe that arguing about who is in a picture belittles the memorial. They suggest Americans should focus on the essence of the day instead of how right or wrong the FLOTUS is.
Of all the tone deaf statements by the tRump family today, this one really takes the 🎂. Real Americans will remember the lost lives, sacrifice of first responders, and those whose live without their loved ones today! #NeverForget #911Anniversary— Becca Westerfield (@beccasblues) September 11, 2018
Thank you for your faithfulness! Love ❤️ our beautiful First Lady.— Janet Willis (@JanetTxBlessed) September 11, 2018
Over 2,000 people lost their lives during and after the dastardly 9/11 attacks. America has never experienced such a national tragedy and the entire country hopes it never happens again as they remember the souls lost.
