September 9/11th is one of those events that inspires remembrance and reflection for all Americans, but most of us look at it as an event that affected us as a nation. For Pete Davidson, though, it’s the day he lost his father who was a New York City firefighter. Davidson was only seven years old at the time, and yesterday he took the time to send out some funny but heartbreaking tweets and pictures memorializing his dad:

Can't believe it's been 14 years. Over 2/3 of my life without you. It feels like it was just yesterday. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of you. You're my hero. Can't wait to see you again someday RIP dad 1/4/68-9/11/01 #neverforget

And, you know, because it’s the internet he had to clarify that first joke for some people:

Thanks, internet, for drawing the worst conclusion possible always and forever.
