The 9/11 Attacks
September 11, 2001 was the first time The Oprah Show ever had to cancel a taping. The terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania instantly transformed America into a nation in mourning. On September 13 and for the next several weeks, The Oprah Show highlighted the lives of people who had lost their lives, and helped Americans deal with the tragedy. "We will never forget," Oprah said.
