'Anderson' is in repeats this week and we decided to take a look back to a special Anderson Cooper anchored that aired on AC360, Friday, December 23rd, 2011.
Welcome to our special for CNN on the front lines; which is right where any reporter wants to be, where it's happening, when it is happening when it really counts.
And when it comes to all of that, it's been a very busy year for us, this year for the world. A year that mattered to millions. People who felt the earth torn apart and saw their world washed away and their faith in science rocked by a nuclear catastrophe.
Elsewhere, millions rose up against dictators. They watched friends and neighbors die in streets but then tasted freedom. You'll experience all of that in the hour ahead through the eyes and minds of my colleagues from CNN international who were there when it happened right from the start.
