5:00 am
throughout my whole take on this go, to i wrote an op-ed there. much more news now with "new day sunday." >> until this really stops, i don't think we'll see any improvement at all. >> it's not over. just as the south begins to thaw from a massive ice storm, a new system moves into the northeast bringing snow, sleet, and ice. the bulls eye for this wicked weather? our nation's capital. ♪ >> it's a dare of prayer in south africa as the country mourns the loss of a legend. we're live in johannesburg, remembering mandela. and some dysfunction to
5:01 am
destiny in a tense battle. auburn claims the ssec title ovr missouri. but will they go all the way? the bcs title is at stake. >> i hope you're waking up to a winning team. let's put it that way. i'm not -- it does not feel good. >> i knew that before i asked the question though. >> i know! good morning, everybody. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 8:00 on the east coast. 5:00 out west. this is "new day sunday." >> might be one of the days you just want to peek out the window and stay inside. we're talking about ice and snow. and just the cold fact for a large part of the eastern united states that's what it is today. >> yeah. but beyond it just being annoying and in the way, it is dangerous. seven deaths are being blamed or linked to the storm. look for ice and snow to make driving really risky from southern ohio all the way to washington, d.c. and before the day is done, the
5:02 am
system will slide north to philly, new york, boston. there's going to be this mixture of ice and sleet and snow and rain and all the junk you really don't want to deal with on the roads. had is dallas. look at this. miles of drivers stuck on interstate 35 for up to ten hours. i can't even deal with a ten-hour drive much less sitting in one spot for ten hours. the storm also led to hundreds of canceled flights, left thousands of people without power. >> so we want to go north a little bit, northeast, to cnn's torre dunnian in roanoke, virginia. that storm is moving in there. so i'm wondering what you're seeing now as compared to say an hour ago. does it feel any different? >> so, christie, you know, it does feel a little bit colder after hearing you guys talk. the theme of the day for most people is going to be think warm thoughts. i have to tell you, i'm thinking about hawaii, headed there for the holidays. let's talk about what is happening here. a little bit of a different
5:03 am
story. take a look at the they are mom per. it's gone down in the past few hours since we started talking this morning. now closer to 34 or so. that is really going to be the concern. if it dips below freezing, they're expecting really a thick layer of ice. it's going to be dangerous for driving conditions. they also are talking about obviously the fact that ice gathers on power lines and trees and things like that. i want to show you this. so far, obviously, we're not seeing that yet this morning. from the storm really, it moved from kentucky to the east coast. it's going all the way up the east coast. it's going to be nasty conditions for everyone. they've had a lot of preparations for this. de-icing the roadways ahead of time. and also at the airport, they have staff that is working on 24-hour shifts here. so far, no delays there. but we'll keep a close eye on everything on this very cold morning. >> all right, torre dunnan. for the folks not headed to hawaii for the holidays, a mai
5:04 am
tai does it. it will warm you up. >> turn up the heat, i suppose. >> let's bring in jennifer grey. >> jennifer, my parents just left yesterday to drive home from atlanta to ohio. and i'm so grateful they got there. >> good. >> yeah, because they really, really got in before it got bad. we are seeing the second wave continuing to push up into the northeast. and so already seeing snow across portions of the south even and northern arkansas and into missouri. this is just around now we're expected to see the ice and snow continue to develop as we go through the day to dayment and then by 5:00 this afternoon, you can see freezing rain, sleet, really pushing into the d.c. area. they could see anywhere from a quarter inch to eye haa half in ice. we could see power outages anywhere from northern virginia through d.c. and then up into the northeast. and then by the time it makes it to new york city and boston, it will be more of a wintry mix. they could still deal with sleet and snow though as we go through the overnight into monday
5:05 am
morning. and then it basically turns into a rain event as we head through monday. more rain for the southeast even on monday as well. so what we're looking at for snow totals, up to five inches across portions of minneapolis and des moines, milwaukee and then lesser amounts, one to two inches, as we get around the d.c. area. we'll be watching this over the next couple of days. >> all right. jennifer grey, thank you. people around the world are mourning the death of former south african president nelson mandela. the current president in south african is urging his country to celebrate mandela and everything he stood for. millions of people across the country are doing just that. ♪ these are the streets of johannesburg earlier. they gathered in places of
5:06 am
worship, homes and places all over south africa to honor mandela. world leaders are preparing to do the same as well. president obama, a trio of former u.s. presidents will attend mandela's memorial service on tuesday. we go to johhannesburg now. you've been discussing this move and what it meendz to spend the next few days celebrating nelson mandela. tell us more about that and what you've been seeing today. >> well, you can hear it as well. this constant lament, this constant song of thanks just around me here in the streets. people continue to come here. it's becoming like a pilgrimage, i think. and just remember, this is a very suburban street in a quiet wealthy area of johannesburg and ten blocks that way, eight blocks that way, people are parking their cars and walking,
5:07 am
pushing strollers, bringing their children along, elderly people coming with bouquets of flowers. others have picked flouers from their gardens. this is a very south african affair. it's a mandela's south africa. it is such a multiracial crowd. you have people from all walks of life. and i think if there is ever any tribute to nelson mandela and the leadership that he showed more than 20 years ago when he brought this nation together is literally behind me. look at this picture. listen to it. this is his legacy. >> yes. and we'll hear more about the legacy at the event that's are scheduled throughout the week. we know it's middle of the afternoon there. the mandela family is expected to give an update this hour on funeral arrangements. have they given that update or are we still expecting that? >> we are waiting for that update from the family. yesterday they just said their thanks. they said he had time for everybody, kings and queens, great and good.
5:08 am
and i think we're going to hear that kind of comment again. in terms of the schedule for the next few days, we're going to see all the heads of state coming on tuesday along with 90,000 south africans packed into that soccer stadium. and then, you know, the actual state funerals which takes place in a remote rural area where nelson mandela wanted to be buried. we're going to be seeing all of those events as well as nelson mandela lying in state for three days during the week at the union buildings which is the seat of government here where he took oath as the first black president. i think also what's important to remember when we look at all of this and the fact that churches, synagogues, temples, mosques across this country, the pavements have become prayer circles, just remember nelson mandela was not a religious man. in fact his daughter told me that he really didn't believe in god. he believed in infinity.
5:09 am
this is a man who really used his own self-confidence, his own inner discipline, his own strength rather than faith. i think everybody around here is acknowledging that. he in a way has become like some sort of spiritual myth at the moment. >> robin, we're going to expand that conversation about forgiveness which many people associate with nelson mandela in the realm of religion and outside of religion. thank you, robin. now i don't know if you heard about this south carolina sheriff who is defying president obama's order to lower the american flag to honor nelson mandela until sunset tomorrow. we're talking about the sheriff rick clark who says he doesn't think it's right. >> the show of sign of respect for what nelson mandela has done. i have no problem with lowering it in south africa and our country, but it is our people who sacrifice for our country. >> while has rare for a u.s. president to order flags lowered
5:10 am
for a nonu.s. citizen, it has happened. george bush did it for pope john paul ii and bill clinton did it for yitzhak rabin. president johnson lowered flags for winston churchill. still to come on "new day," last night florida state didn't just beat duke, who did you pick in that game? >> let's not talk about that. >> they crushed duke. check out the quarterback there. hurdling over the defense for the touchdown en route to victory. highlights, upsets from all of saturday's big games. that's coming up. plus, exploring mandela's message of forgiveness. we're going to talk about what it means to forgive. and if it matters why you choose to do it. ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪ ♪ stacy's mom has got it goin' on ♪

5:22 am
media's approach to those stories. for your first ever "reliable sources," you're looking at the one year anniversary of the events in newtown, sandy hook. >> that's right. we are looking both back a wum days at the 911 tapes that were released this week were excruciating to hear and then looking forward to the anniversary and wondering if news organizations are going to come into newtown and use the town as backdrop for the coverage of the anniversary. cnn says they're not going to come to the down that day. they don't want to disrupt the families that are there. but it's an interesting media ethics ish u that we're going to talk to a reporter who actually lives in newtown. >> everybody remembers where they were, you know, when they heard about what is happening. you just couldn't walk away from your tv. i want to know -- >> all i wanted to do that day is go and hug my mom. >> and my kids. yeah. it was -- i lost it a couple

5:24 am
door is open, sure. >> but it is the kind of show that you'd enjoy doing? >> i like -- >> i wonder sometimes if you're too big for the "today" show. you have too much going on already. >> well, i like live broadcasting. i think that, you know, morning shows have evolved. there's been a paradigm shift in the style of the shows. the style of show that i watched when i was a kid and you watched when you were a kid is a little bit different than it is now. so, yeah, i'm hoping to. >> here's the context of that. his nbc deal is coming up in a few months. of course, the "today" show, matt lauer is some day going to leave. people wonder if ryan is the kind of ghi could replace hill. >> many people know your name from "the new york times" and covering media and now your face is on television. it will be every week. >> yes. >> tell us about this transition from print to television. has it been a challenge? >> it's been easier than i expected. the makeup is still taking time
5:25 am
to get used to. but there is a similarity that i discovered. in print, the newspaper has to come out every day. on television, the deadline is even more severe. it has to come out every minute. it reminds me of the paperweight that my high school newspaper editor gave me. she said -- it had the best words i ever seen about journalism. it said says, the greatest inspiration is the deadline. i think that is true in television and in newspapers. >> isn't that truth? brian stelter, host of "reliable sources." >> welcome to the cnn family. we're so glad to have you here, brian. good luck today with your first program. 11:00 a.m. eastern, people. yep, 11:00 a.m. eastern. we'll be watching, brian. >> still to come on "new day," finding the strength to forgive. >> yeah. we're going to examine one of nelson mandela's most enduring messages and discover how to live it in our own lives.

during a national day of prayer. they've gathered in churches and mosques and synagogues all across the nation to pay tribute to south africa's first black president and icon of reconciliation and forgiveness. president obama and george bush, bill clinton and jimmy carter will attend tuesday's memorial service for mandela. naz johannesburg. church mass from the church of nativity in bethlehem. ♪ that mass will also happen, i think we have pictures of that. the death of nelson mandela has led many to reflect on really what it means to forgive. and what it means to be forgiven. and when mandela walked out of prison after 27 years, brutal years behind bars, he forgave his jailers. he let go of the pain and regret and hurt. >> and, you know what? that's not an easy thing to do
5:32 am
for any of us in our lives based on if somebody has hurt us. a lot of us will never -- know what exactly that was like. but we get that hurt and that pain and how do you forgive? how do you get over it? to discuss, we are joined by brent stron who teaches bible and theology at the canvas school and in new york we have a clinical psychologist. thank you both so much for being with us. i want to read a quote to you here from mandela about forgiveness real quick. it is, "as i walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, i knew if i didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind i'd still be in prison." so, brent, what do you take from that? there's a lot of truth to that, isn't there? we're keeping ourselves hold up when we don't let it go. >> yeah. forgiveness is super hard, like you said. i mean you can't be cavalier about that. in the bible and theology,
5:33 am
christianity, its not cavalier about how hard it is to forgive. yet, it's imperative. it says in the scriptural text to forgive. in the new testament, jesus makes it a command that one must forgive if one wants to be forgiven and that includes in a personal recommendationship and that includes the relationship with the divine. >> want to preface this by saying i don't want people to think that i am questioning the motive of nelson mandela what i ask this question. it takes a lot to go and have tea with the widow of the man who created the apartheid system. but, jeff, the question is, does it matter if the forgiveness is based on religion or even if it is based on some moral codes, sometimes if it's just xpeeda to forgive and move on to get to another goal? does it matter? >> i don't think it matters at all. i think, of course, nelson mandela had religion and spurt you'll alt. so that certainly helped him. but he also had a political
5:34 am
agenda. so we're talking victor a little bit of both here. he knew in order to destroy apartheid, in order to change the world, he had to look at forgiving his jailers. he had to leave that hate behind so he could be much more effective with regard to his agenda. but the fact is that it's not just about forgiving the other person that is important. the most important thing is that you're able to move on. you're able to let go of that anger and fear. you're a more efficient and happier person because that old saying of he who has hate, if you have hate for a person, that person will own you. >> isn't that the truth? you know, one of the things that i learned in my own life and the hardest thing for me to get about forgiveness is you can forgive someone and still cut them out of your life. you know if, somebody is dangerous for you in your life, if they're not a good person to have in your life, you can still
5:35 am
cut them out. you're allowed to do that. it doesn't make them suddenly safe four just because you forgive them, right? isn't it a defense mechanism. what does the bible say about that? >> forgiveness is not the same as forgetting. it is not a biblical max yum. we say it but not found in the bible. some things are so profoundly hurtful and bad that you're instructed no the to forget them. can you forgive them but not forget them. as you say, you have to protect yourself and make sure these things never happen again. but also because it keeps you thankful that you're not in that circumstance anymore if you remember what it was like. i think forgetting is not always a part of the equation. but rather changing our activity towards people. it's not just how we feel about them. but what we do towards them and can we avoid escalating or retaliating or seeking revenge rather letting that go, as you said. that's something we can do even if we don't ever forget.
5:36 am
>> how do we do that? don't you wonder? >> how do we start that conversation? even if it's internal? if it's intrainspective to forgive someone. often the people we have a grudge against don't even know it. they're going on about their life and don't know that we're so angry or so held by that resentment. jeff, how do you start the process of forgiveness? >> you start a day at a time. you know that if you let that anger go just for that day, don't worry about tomorrow. that will take care of itself. but the most important thing in getting rid of that anger is what nelson mandela did. you change your perception. instead of seeing that person as being very hateful, instead, you feel sorry for them because you know that they're also a victim. those jailers were also victims of apartheid. and that's why he was able to reach out to them and show them that they were living under an oppressive system that turned them into monsters.
5:37 am
so that's where that forgiveness comes in. because it's not about you. it's about them. and their hurt that makes them do something that can be so hateful. >> you know, we talk about a lot of what we're talking about is a post robin island mandela. a prerobin island mandela was probably more of an eye for an eye person than turn the other cheek. >> and that's what i wanted to ask you about. that's in the bible. there seems to be some people say conflicting messages. you have an eye for an eye in the old testament. then we have turn the other cheek. so can those two ideas even co-exist? is one better than the -- is one more important than the other? >> eye for an eye in the legal material of the old testament is really a way to limit a payback in crime scenarios. it is found throughout the afrpg enlt world in legal materials. so if someone committed a crime and they poked your eye out, you could poke their eye out but you couldn't kill them. there is a way to contain
5:38 am
escalation of violence or reparation. so it really doesn't have anything to do with forgiveness. and, of course, the old testament and new testament have a lot with proper care towards the enemies. if your enemy is hungry, give them food. if he's thirsty, feed him. one key thing about the biblical material and the way they talk about the enemies, there's a lot wlaf we would say is angry rhetoric about one's enemies in the psalms. even violent things are said. i think to jeff's point, it's a way that the ancient israelites worked through the contact of prayer, not with an angry fist toward their neighbor. it's a way to con taint violence and lit it go. let it go but don't let it own you and make it part of a different relationship. >> wow. >> dr. jeff gardier, thank you so much. brent strom, thank you as well. >> so glad to have both of you
