"After the ninth anniversary, that next day, you started building up to the 10th year. This feels a lot different, in that regard.

Of course, it's difficult to remember 9/11 without remembering its impact on the nation's political narrative.
"We've gone past that deep, collective public grief," says Wolf, whose wife, Katherine, was killed at the trade center. "And the fact that the politicians will not be involved, to me, makes it more intimate, for the families. . That's the way that it can be now."
