  The Latest: Obama hails the heroes of 9/11 and afterward President Barack Obama has lauded the heroes of 9/11 — and of the years since — in a message to mark the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks. “One thing that became clear on 9/11 — and has been clear ever since — is that America has always been home to heroes who run towards danger in order to do what is right,” said Obama, who was U.S. President from 2009 to 2017. He said the enduring image for him and his wife Michelle of that day was not the wreckage and destruction but the people.

  'It doesn't get easier': Grief at Ground Zero still palpable 20 years after 9/11 The grief at ground zero was still palpable on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York City.Once again the living victims of the 9/11 attacks — the walking wounded who lost friends and relatives or survived and now wonder why — came back to the place we once called ground zero. They grieved on a morning eerily similar to that Tuesday in 2001 — a cloudless blue sky filled lower Manhattan with bright light and the cool of the fall to come.

"It's about six unique characters that are all friends. It's really a truly situational comedy — just the different situations they get into," she explained at the time.

Friends: The Reunion went on to earn Cox her first Emmy nod, when the special was nominated for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded). While Cox told Entertainment Weekly in July that the long-awaited nomination was "not exactly the Emmy I was looking for," she was nonetheless happy that the special was recognized.

"I'm so happy to be a part of it. I'm so thrilled that I got to do it onstage back at that same studio, the same Stage 24, with those incredible people that I love so much," Cox said. "And I'm so thrilled, but that Emmy [nomination] really belongs to [director] Ben Winston."
