Today, the country pauses to remember the attacks of September 11, 2001. Marking the anniversary in a public way shapes how individuals experience grief. Host Frank Stasio speaks with Rev. Louane Frey, a chaplain who worked in the Ground Zero recovery effort and Howard Winokuer, a grief counselor and educator, about the events of 9/11 and the ways we grieve.
