"At a time when hate infests our politics, these young people remind us of who we really are," the tweet continued.

The New York Times found itself under fire after a tweet insisted that "airplanes took aim" at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
As Americans are fully aware, terrorists were responsible for hijacking the planes and piloting them into New York City's twin towers, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
A tweet from the outlet read, "18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died."
The story attached to the tweet also featured the phrase "airplanes took aim" at the World Trade Center.
After heavy backlash, the newspaper deleted the tweet and issued a clarification that terrorists — not airplanes — were behind the evil events of 9/11.
The story was also updated to reflect the change.
A total of 2,996 people died during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
