We’ll Meet Again

Reunions of those who survived the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks invariably have high emotion attached. That certainly is the case in the new episode “Heroes of 9/11,” as host Ann Curry facilitates reconnections between some people who initially encountered each other on that day. A chaplain wants to thank a fellow clergyman who gave him support then, while another man hopes to find the stranger who consoled him.
8 p.m. ET on FREEFORM
