As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 passes, 'Eight Forty-Eight' examines how to deal with grief.

Sunday was the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. But Monday, the weeks of remembrance and memorials commemorating the day largely came to an end. For many Americans, the events of 9/11 fade until the next year – or longer. But what about those people who lost someone that day? Or for that matter - any person who suffered the unexpected loss of a loved one? When others move on, how do people deal with grief? To discuss Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Dr. Carl Bell, a psychiatrist at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
