20/20 – September 10 2021 – 9/11 Heroism & Bravery + Kids of 9/11 – ABC

Tonight, Friday September 10 2021 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and 9 p.m. CT, ABC broadcasts two special episodes of 20/20, with David Muir and Diane Sawyer reporting on the events of 9/11, interviewing survivors and family members and how the tragic events of the day changed them and the world

Two decades after 9/11, anchor David Muir reports on how the day’s tragic events forever changed the world. In the one-hour special event, Muir interviews survivors and family members who lost loved ones in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Flight 93 in Shanksville. The survivors share their harrowing personal stories of rescue and escape, including Florence Jones, who Muir has followed for years. Muir also spends time with families who lost loved ones, including the family of Flight 93 passenger Tom Burnett who, along with other passengers, helped stop an additional attack on our nation’s capital. “20/20” will also revisit Joseph Pfeifer, the New York City Fire Department chief, who Muir has profiled, who led the command post at the north tower following the initial attack – and firefighters who survived the north tower collapse. Muir’s interviews include personal and moving messages to the American people from survivors and relatives of some of the victims on what they’re hoping Americans will do to honor those who were lost – 20 years later. The special edition of “20/20” airs Friday, Sept. 10 (9:01-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Twenty years ago, in the wake of Sept. 11, ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer sat down with young women holding their infants – who were pregnant when their husbands died in the attacks. The mothers she met were fresh in grief, holding new babies who often looked like their dads. Over the years, Sawyer and her team followed these families as they look at the world through their unique lens, with their children’s lives in part shaped before they were even born. Now, as those children approach their 20th birthdays, a special edition of “20/20” brings nearly 40 families together again. Has grief given them new purpose? Are some following in their fathers’ footsteps? A master class in resilience and hope comes from a group forever bonded by a national tragedy. With lessons to teach us after a year of national trauma, they hand us a blueprint for survival. The special edition of “20/20” airs Friday, Sept. 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
