to determine whether anybody knew what he was planning. now authorities say that he had been writing in that journal you had mentioned, that he practiced bomb detonation and doing tactical drills in his backyard all in order to become what they call a killing machine. this morning, abc news learning that micah johnson had been planning an even more destructive attack on police for months. >> he was amassing the capabilities to do more mayhem than he did on that day. >> all: black lives matter! >> reporter: but police say he saw that black lives matter protest as a target of opportunity, one that he had been training for, taking self-defense courses and doing tactical drills in the backyard of his middle class home. authorities say he even detailed some of the training and planning in a journal. >> the person talked extensively about shoot and move protocols and tactics. >> reporter: shooting and moving tactics johnson used to confuse and kill police officers. >> he had a lot of magazines and he was ready for an extended firefight. >> reporter: the army veteran

7:07 am
the use of that robot bearing the bomb was controversial. do you think it was warranted? >> i do believe it was warranted. it saved lives. it would have been a tragedy for more officers to lose their life. >> reporter: authorities decided to go ahead and detonate that bomb despite the fact that they knew there were people inside that college at that time. apparently people had become trapped there when the school went on lockdown but all of them were evacuated safely, george. >> okay, matt, thanks. let's get more from our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas in washington and, pierre, the investigation has intensified. authorities still searching for any possible accomplices. >> reporter: good morning, george. authorities this weekend continue to look for support johnson may have had especially from black supremacists and so far they found no evidence to link others to this plot, but the dallas police chief said on friday he plans to leave no stone unturned. the suspect micah johnson embraced a radical form of afrocentrism and "the new york times" is reporting that he supported
7:08 am
the new black panther party, which advocates violence against whites and jews. investigators claim he was on radical websites and social media platforms. in one case liked a page that said "kill everything blue that moves." and while such language is incredibly scary, it may be just within the margins of free speech. it's a general call to harm people but not a direct threat aimed at a specific person. but there are those in law enforcement who worry that people preaching this kind of rhetoric might inspire violence the way isis radicals have been doing on social media. george. >> so much hate online. okay, pierre, thanks very much. robin. >> all right, george, thank you. now to a texas mother being called a hero. mia taylor and her four sons were caught in a hail of bullets and she was wounded trying to protect them and she joins us now from garland, texas. mia, it is so good to see you. tell us how you are doing this morning as you continue to heal and recover from your wound. >> i'm just very thankful, and
7:09 am
i'm just glad to -- i'm glad i'm still here. i'm glad my boys are still here and i'm just very thankful. >> thankful is the word, and we are thankful for that, as well. you went there with your sons to the protest. tell us what happened then. >> yes, ma'am. we -- i wanted to take my boys to the protest so they can just see unity and how we can come together to make a difference, and everything was great. you know, it started to come to an end, and we were just talking. >> and then the shots rang out. when did you know that you were hit? >> as we were on the corner, we heard the -- it was really just me and my boys and the police officers on that corner, and we heard that first shot, and we all just kind of looked around and officers included not entirely sure what that was or where it was coming from, and then the second shot rang out,
7:10 am
and i heard the officer, he yelled out, you know, he's got a gun. he said, run or get down, and then it just was a barrage of bullets that just almost sounded like they were coming from everywhere. my kids took off up the block, and, of course, i'm making sure that they're ahead of me as much as possible, and i'm running as well, but then i feel it hit me in the back of my leg, and it slowed me down immediately, and i guess my son andrew turned around to either see where i was or he might have heard what i said. i'm not entirely sure, but he turned around and i'm like, oh, god, and i just grabbed him and i just fell on him just kind of just threw all my weight on him to get him down into the street and -- >> your motherly instincts just kicked in. even in that time your motherly instincts, you were there, you wanted to protect your children.
7:11 am
>> absolutely. absolutely. absolutely. >> and what did the police do when they knew that you were shot, the police around you? >> several -- a few officers had come up that block right where we were, and they saw us laying there, and one of them asked, you know, is anyone hit? my son said no because he was not aware at the time that i had been shot. i said yes but in a very low kind of tone as to not startle my son. and the officer asked again a little more aggressively, is anybody hit? and i said, yes, sir, i am, in my leg, and i mean they went into action. they surrounded us. they did for me and my son what i did for my son, and that was to protect us, and they went into action, no hesitation whatsoever. >> they were doing their job. >> i'm just so grateful. >> doing their job to protect and to serve, and you saw some police officers get shot before
7:12 am
your eyes, mia. >> yes. yes, ma'am. yes, ma'am, yes, ma'am, yes, i did. i saw two officers -- i saw two officers get shot. >> i'm so sorry. i mean, i know what you were saying and what people are trying to grapple with what's going on in this country, and in part the protests you said that you were there with your sons because of unity. you wanted to show dallas coming together. there were others that were there, though, as you know, because they were upset with the two gentlemen that were killed earlier in the week in minnesota and in louisiana. what do you say to people who are waking up or about to start a new week, mia, and last week is one that we all want to put behind us, but we have to learn and move forward together.
7:13 am
>> we do. we absolutely do. as my son stated, you know, these are isolated incidences. unfortunately, it's frequent in the incidences, but we have to learn -- we have to learn to love. we have to learn to understand that policemen and policewomen are not robots. they are human. we are all human, and we all make mistakes. some are more permanent mistakes than others, but we can all get over anything if we just come together, just communication. it all starts with communication if you ask me. i just -- we all have so much more in common than i think that we all want to admit.
7:14 am
and it starts with family. it starts with family. >> you know, you remind me a lot of my mom. she used to say that a lot, too. she would say, honey, we have more in common than not so why don't we focus on those similarities and a lot of it begins with family. >> exactly. >> mia taylor, thank you so much. >> exactly. we do. >> yeah, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> for your strength and your courage and continue to know that the nation, the world, are thinking of you, your family, all the people there in dallas, as well as the families who lost loved ones last week in other places. thank you, mia taylor. you take care. >> yes, ma'am. thank you. thank you. >> so she was shot, she didn't want to startle her son, so she whispered to the police officer that she had been hit. >> and you just see how much she is powered by love. so strong. >> a message there for all of us. all these shootings, of course, front and center in the race for the white house right
7:15 am
now as just one week before the republican convention in cleveland. and abc's tom llamas has the latest from the campaign trail. >> reporter: with the country still reeling after the ambush in dallas and protests across the nation, donald trump is accusing the president of ignoring reality, trump tweeting, "president obama thinks the nation is not as divided as people think. he is living in a world of the make believe." race now at the forefront of the campaign. one of trump's biggest supporters, former new york city mayor rudy giuliani with this advice to black children. >> if i were a black father and i was concerned about the safety of my child, i would say be very respectful of the police. i'd also say be very careful of those kids in the neighborhood and don't get involved with them because, son, there's a 99% chance they're going to kill you, not the police. >> reporter: and this blunt view of black lives matter. >> black lives matter, white lives matter, asian lives matter, hispanic lives matter.
7:16 am
that's anti-american and it's racist. >> reporter: a much different tone from hillary clinton. >> i'm going to be talking to white people. i think we're the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our african-american fellow citizens. >> reporter: trump supporter retired army general michael flynn, who's being vetted to be trump's running mate, strongly disagreeing with clinton's statement. >> and she talked about white people being to blame. i mean, that is so irresponsible. >> reporter: but flynn may have his own troubles jelling with trump. >> i think women have to be able to choose. >> reporter: he is a registered democrat who unlike trump supports abortion rights. and a big week ahead on the campaign trail. senator sanders expected to endorse hillary clinton at a rally tomorrow, and we may learn who donald trump will pick to be his running mate before next week's convention. george. >> okay, tom, thanks. let's get more on this now from martha raddatz who joins us from dallas and our political analyst matthew dowd from san antonio. and, martha, you spent the
7:17 am
weekend there in dallas speaking with voters and now heading across the country to cleveland. this issue, of course, top of mind for everyone. >> reporter: it truly is, george. really everyone we've talked to has talked not only about a racial divide, but the political divide, and because we're in dallas, and we've been around here, obviously everybody is talking about how you bridge that divide. some of the voters i talked to say they really haven't made a decision yet, that they're listening to donald trump, they're listening to hillary clinton, but keeping their children safe and somehow bringing this nation together is really paramount on their minds, george. >> and, matthew dowd, we saw in martha's interview with general flynn yesterday, he said he was basically pro-choice. difficult for a republican vice presidential nominee especially this year, but donald trump is zeroing in on this decision now, biggest decision, as you said, of his campaign, the biggest one he has control of. other contenders, chris christie, mike pence, the governor of indiana. who would help him the most?
7:18 am
>> well, i think this is a very important point in the time for donald trump. i mean, for two reasons this decision matters to him a lot. one, he needs to dominate the conversation again, george, in the course of this, and he's lost control somewhat of the conversation over the last month. it's important for that and, two, he needs somebody to be part of his tag team. he's been tag-teamed. he needs somebody to help him attack the other side and carry his message, and he's not had that since he's gotten the nomination or come close to getting the nomination. >> could get it in the next few days, okay, matthew dowd, martha raddatz, thanks very much. >> let's go to ginger. >> at least 19 wildfires burning out west from colorado to california. this image from boulder county, that is the cold springs fire. two out-of-state campers were arrested for setting that fire. we've got hundreds of folks even overnight that have been evacuated from their homes. santa clarita, california, the sage fire and then, of course, looking at 49% contained and 77% contained in this part of california. much more fire danger today.

7:31 am
been building over the past several days in front of dallas police headquarters as protests over the weekend here remain peaceful. the city getting ready to host president obama. he is arriving tomorrow to speak at a memorial service honoring those five officers killed in the ambush shooting here last thursday. former president george bush also expected to address the crowd. last night from los angeles to memphis, thousands gathered in cities all over the united states to protest the treatment of black men by police. hundreds were arrested over the weekend in baton rouge and 21 officers injured during protests in st. paul, minnesota. coming up in the next hour we will hear more from that powerful town hall here in dallas over the weekend with an inspirational message of unity and peace, something this entire country needs. robin. >> all right, amy, thank you very much. we'll get back to you later. those protests around the country sparked in part by the police shooting in minnesota that took the life of philando castile. the aftermath livestreamed on facebook by his brave girlfriend, diamond reynolds. she is here live with us this
7:32 am
morning, and we're going to bring you that exclusive interview coming up but first eva pilgrim has the latest on the investigation from st. paul, minnesota. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. those officers involved in the shooting are on paid leave as this investigation rolls on. this morning we're hearing from one of the officers' attorneys who say there's more to the story than we've been told. >> i told him not to reach for it. i told him to get his hand off it. >> reporter: this morning new developments in the shooting death of philando castile, the school worker gunned down by police officer jeronimo yanez after being stopped for a broken taillight. >> you told him to get his i.d., sir, his driver's license. oh, my god. >> you don't call a man for a taillight and then kill him. that's ridiculous. >> reporter: the officer's attorney speaking out overnight. >> there was more than one reason to stop the car. there was more than the reason that the brake light was cracked.
7:33 am
>> sir, he's licensed to carry. >> reporter: while castile who was armed inside his vehicle is said to have had a valid permit to carry, yanez seen here in the city of falcon heights annual report tells abc news through his attorney that once the 32-year-old had been pulled over, he did not comply with officer's orders. >> this incident had nothing to do with race and everything to do with the presence of a gun. >> reporter: the officer's attorney says he has seen video and audio of the stop he thinks will prove their case. for now, the only video seen by the public, this one, castile's girlfriend calmly capturing the horrifying aftermath. >> you shot four bullets into him, sir. he was just getting his license and registration, sir. >> reporter: holding it together until she is placed in the back of a police car eventually breaking down. her 4-year-old daughter who witnessed the terrifying ordeal from the backseat comforts her. >> it's okay, i'm right here with you.
7:34 am
>> reporter: his attorney says he'll be able to speak more freely about what happened during that traffic stop once the video and audio are released. for now he's waiting for investigators to do their job, george. >> okay, eva, thanks. and we are joined now by diamond reynolds and her attorney larry rogers. thank you for coming in this morning. we are so sorry for what you've been through, and we know how hard it has been just to see you watch that video one more time, but you and your daughter have also been so strong throughout this. how are you doing? >> we're holding up. i mean, every day is challenging but with god and all the support of everyone around america, i believe we can get through this. >> and i think all of america has been so struck by the kind of composure and strength you showed during that horrifying few minutes with the police officer. can you explain how you remained so calm and how you decided to shoot that video? >> i was able to remain calm
7:35 am
because i knew in the back of my mind if anything was to alarm that officer, he possibly could have took me and maybe even my daughter, and what made me record the live video was god telling me it's your word over theirs, and i just wanted the justice. >> and, you know, you saw in that piece from eva now the officer's attorney is now speaking out, as well. he says this was all about the presence and display of a gun, that it wasn't about race and that he has audio and video that backs up that case. how do you respond to that? >> i'm appalled that they would even say that, you know. the officer didn't take proper procedures, so the fact that they're stating that they had probable cause is absolutely incorrect. >> so what happened? did the gun ever come out? >> no, absolutely not.
7:36 am
he was never even asked was he armed or anything. we told him. he told him. >> so when you say the officer didn't follow proper procedure, try and take us to those moments before you were able to pull out the video and explain what happened, what you saw, what the officer said, what was going on. >> well, she's done that largely in the video. the video depicts the immediate aftermath, but it really describes the entirety of what happened because she describes the moments leading up to when she pulled out the phone, and it's never denied, it's never refuted by the officer, and she emphatically says you asked him for his license and registration and that's what he was getting at the time that you shot him. >> so the gun, as you said, never came out. >> never. it never came out. it could never be a threat. he didn't ask about it. he didn't know it was on his person. he came to the car. he said it was a traffic stop for a taillight and that he asked for license and registration. that was it. that was all. >> as you saw the officer's
7:37 am
attorney also says the broken taillight wasn't the only reason the car was stopped. did he ever mention anything else? >> he never mentioned anything other than a taillight in which we later discovered there was no broken taillight. >> and that's the concern we have here is that they will begin to add facts to the circumstances which is why her livestream video from facebook is so important. it's contemporaneous with the events that occurred and she's emphatic about what's happening. she's complying with the officer. the man is still seat belted at the time he's shot and while a gun is still trained inside the vehicle and sleaze there, she knows that after the events unfold she won't be believed. she won't be trusted and she like many people across america have to document things because people inherently trust the officers against the citizens so people are forced to -- >> you knew there would be questions in that moment? >> absolutely. i knew that people would choose sides, and i knew that they wouldn't see me as being the
7:38 am
person who would be telling the truth, and because of that, i chose to in that moment record the immediate aftermath because i wasn't able to record in the moment because i didn't want to put myself or my daughter in more danger, but i knew that by recording i would be able to have my side brought to the table. >> have you seen the audio and video that the officer's attorney is speaking about? do you know what he could be referring to? >> i don't and what's important about that is that she didn't hide a video. she immediately displayed it to the public and to the world. so if they have evidence that they think refutes that, produce it right away. don't hide it, show it to us. we'd like to see the dash cam. we'd like to see any and every piece of evidence that they have. we have demonstrated and shown what we have, and the world has seen it. governor dayton called it as he saw it. this involved race. this involved issues that likely would not have occurred had they been white people driving through the area. >> the officer may be watching
7:39 am
this morning. what would you say to him? >> i would just like to say that i'm very hurt that he would take my best friend away from myself and my daughter's role model away from her. it's just very unfortunate that things had to result like this and i just want justice to be served. >> i have seen you look over at your daughter several times here over just the last few minutes. what do you say to her when you hug her now? >> i just tell her to stay strong and we're going to be okay and we're going to get the justice that we deserve. >> and what does justice mean to you? >> justice to me means everyone being held accountable for their own actions. we're all human. no one is born into being doctors. no one is born into being lawyers. no one is born into being

police authority. we are all born as humans, as one, so justice to me meaning someone meaning him has to be held accountable, not as an officer or a man with a badge or someone even protecting our people, but him within himself as a person, how he was born into this world just with no titles, no labels, he needs to be held accountable. >> no special treatment for anyone. we all should be required to live by the rules, the same set of rules and when you do an act that is unjustifiable, you should be held accountable. >> you want justice, and what do you hope for the country coming out of all of this unrest, all this violence we've seen over the last week? >> i am very baffled that people are resorting to violence with violence. violence is never the key. it's not acceptable. we have to be able to come together and lead by example. if we're not able to stand together and control our
7:41 am
emotions, then how can we ever expect anyone else in the world to do so? >> and law enforcement has to stop closing ranks and stand up for what's right and what's just. we want an independent investigation by the department of justice. there is no faith in police policing police and investigating police. >> absolutely. >> thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having us. >> robin. >> it's good to have diamond here and her attorney, larry rogers and her little girl and her sister here too so she has a lot of support around the country and here in the studio supporting her too with her family. coming up on our big board, more reports of sexual harassment complaints against fox news chairman. now the high-profile women coming to his defense. plus, a midair mystery. what made several passengers sick on a delta flight? and pokemon problems. a warning from police for people playing the popular new smartphone game. we'll be back in two minutes. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c.

7:44 am
we welcome you back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by with more on this morning's top stories. t.j. holmes is here at the desk with us, and we'll get to him in just a moment but we'll start with new developments in the legal drama surround fox news chairman roger ailes. "new york" magazine reporting six more women claimed ailes sexually harassed him years before he worked at fox news as others have come to his defense including maria bartiromo, greta van susteren and jeanine pirro. joining us now is dan abrams, so you have women coming to his defense, supposedly these other accusers, how will it shake down with the case, dan? >> well, let's separate out the court of public opinion from the court of law and the court of public opinion these high-profile women, some of them former prosecutors, are very helpful to roger ailes but in the court of law, the more important question is going to be, who are the accusers, what is the credibility?
7:45 am
two of them on the record here. with regard to the four other, i think we have to look carefully at those. the reporter who reported this story has been going after fox news and roger ailes for years here. some of his reporting has been questioned but the bottom line is if they're able to get people on the record making similar accusations to roger ailes, that could be problematic for him. >> and roger ailes' attorney on the record, as we. we want to read his statement. he is saying "it's become obvious miss carlson and her lawyer are desperately attempting to litigate this in the press because they have no legal case to argue. the latest allegations all 30 to 50 years old are false." so a lot more to come on this. we want to move on now to steve ganyard. to get into this mysterious air scare for passengers aboard a delta flight diverted to tulsa after several passengers reported feeling ill and according to the tulsa fire department, some passengers showed signs of elevated carbon monoxide levels, and, steve, you're our aviation contributor. this is really scary stuff. we all know that carbon monoxide can kill. >> that's true, george. i'm still not sure what caused these people to get ill.
7:46 am
carbon monoxide in the cabin just doesn't make sense. perhaps there was something where the engine exhaust got mixed, but i still think that what caused this is a bit of a mystery. we also saw that some of the passengers panicked, so perhaps there was some sympathetic symptoms going on here, but delta will get to the bottom of this and the faa will be look over their shoulder to make sure they do. >> we need to have the answers. steve, you're right about that. thank you. now a new pokemon game that could be putting people at risk. pokemon go is an app that lets people see the characters through their phones as if they exist in the real world. the goal, to catch them by going to these spots like the one we have one outside the abc studio, right? >> that's idea. the most popular app in the world right now. >> what's the deal? >> you're looking at your phone. if you see a pokemon you're trying to catch and it says 44th and broadway and to get it, i need to physically go outside. it keeps up with you via gps, you see the problem now, people
7:47 am
can keep up with you, so now police in missouri say they've had an instance where people are using this pokemon app to lure people, other players in the game to specific locations that are kind of secluded so, again, folks, they can tell exactly where you are and get you to a specific location. >> so you're playing against somebody who draws you to an area. >> they can draw you to it by different versions of the game. essentially you can say a lot is going on in this area and stay there and wait for somebody to show up exactly where you are because the game is so hot and addictive people are lured to these areas. i got to go get this pokemon and i got to go get this critter. they will come to the area. this is the real deal and they are putting out warnings now that -- >> what are they doing about this? >> they're trying to tell people, just play with people you know or friends if you're going to new areas and look up, people are using this thing right now walking down the street, looking down, where is this thing and going into unknown areas and, boom. >> there's a difference in times square than going down a dark alley. >> that's exactly right. >> t.j., thanks very much. we'll be right back.

amy is there with the latest on the investigation. good morning, amy. >> george, robin, good morning to you. former president george w. bush will join president obama here in dallas tomorrow for a memorial service as this city comes together in the aftermath of thursday's attack. abc news has learned micah johnson had been planning an even larger attack on police apparently training for months. investigators are now trying to decipher a message he wrote in his own blood inside that parking garage where he was killed by a police bomb. but right now the focus here on the victims and their families. crowds gathered for a vigil for transit officer brent thompson who was married just two weeks before losing his life in that ambush. we spoke to his two bosses this morning. >> the outpouring of support has been truly overwhelming. i've heard from transit agencies and transportation agencies from all over the country that have contacted us and said, what can we do to help? we're thinking of you and we're praying for y'all. we're supportive.

navy investigators say human error is to blame for this accident. a cable that was supposed to stop the plane snapped and there it goes plunging off the "uss eisenhower." the pilot manages to somehow pull up to avoid crashing into the ocean. the navy says workers missed a critical maintenance. and turning to politics, a new poll shows most americans disagree with the justice department's decision not to charge hillary clinton for using that private e-mail server. 56% disapprove, but our abc news/"washington post" poll finds most americans now say the e-mail scandal will not influence their vote. and a frightening moment for aerosmith guitarist joe perry. he is in the hospital after collapsing during a concert right here in new york. fans say perry appeared disoriented. seconds later he staggered offstage then passed out. the 65-year-old is reportedly now in stable condition. perry was performing with johnny depp and alice cooper in their band, the hollywood vampires. and there is a parenting alert this morning about the danger of teens vaping with
8:05 am
flavored e-cigarettes. the new study suggests the habit is leading to a level of nicotine use among teenagers not seen since the 1990s. researchers say cigarette smoking rates remain steady even as vaping became more popular. and it turns out one thing parents do not have to worry about so much is thumb-sucking. a new study says thumb-suckers are far less likely to develop allergies and the same apparently true for kids who bite their nails. researchers say those habits expose them to more germs and that boosts their immune system. and finally it is clear why some people are meant to play baseball and others should probably just stick to watching the game. as for playing, check out san francisco giants catcher buster posey throw the ball to his pitcher, who was arguing that a call -- he was arguing a call and wasn't looking but apparently that doesn't even matter. the ball falls -- look at that -- right into his glove and then there's this. a giants fan's disastrous attempt to catch a foul.

8:15 am
conversation and joining us now is psychiatrist and good friend of "gma" dr. janet taylor and marc lamont hill is back. he is the author of "nobody: casualties of america's war on the vulnerable from ferguson to flint and beyond," also the host of vh-1 live that's premiering on sunday. >> thank you both for being mere. >> marc, you also teach at morehouse, and i nknow you've been in touch with your students. what kind of emotions are they sharing with you? >> the emotions are so raw. you know, i receive phone calls and text messages and of course it's a school with all black males and some were literally in tears saying what do we do? they were devastated at the shootings on wednesday and thursday in baton rouge and in minnesota, partly because they felt like there's this inescapable violence and they say we go to a great school, we're well educated but we can't escape the possibility of violence and then on friday they were devastated about the officers being killed and were also worried that narrative would kind of erase the narrative against violence against black males around america so they're lost. they're looking for answers and want to do something to help
8:16 am
move the country forward. >> it's good to hear what the morehouse men have to say. janet, so many emotions. i don't know about you guys, but over the weekend i gathered with friends and there's anger and there's fear, and tell us, janet, the difference between those two emotions and how they affect us, anger and fear. >> so fear is an instinct and, you know, our brains are constantly working to see if we're safe or we need to look for something to survive, so that fear in terms of feeling threatened is a normal reaction but it's largely unconscious but the anger is a secondary emotion and it's a reaction to what is going on so emotions are normal. i think, you know, we are so used to looking for happiness, which is important, and joy, but sometimes we have to be rooted in pain so that we can work through it, and before we can get to love and healing, we have to look at ourselves in terms of our own lineage, our own beliefs, what's been told to us about other people and challenge that so that we can break that because the suffering that we feel right now is a suffering that we feel i think as black
8:17 am
people over the last 300 years, and that suffering also extends to people who have been perpetrators, so now our nation is at a time where we can be raw, talk to our neighbors, listen. we have to learn how to listen in a way that's not defensive but say i want to understand. >> the mayor of dallas, interesting, many things that he said yesterday in church, and one of the things he said when it comes to change, you have to be willing to change too. it's like it's very easy to point so you need to change, what about yourself? >> there's no question and just you don't have to be on the other side. you don't have to -- just because we're the same ethnic group doesn't mean we all have the same feelings and beliefs. i think as a nation we have to be able to tolerate differences and learn how to listen to understand, which means stop with the automatic thoughts and really be there in a way that i think it's time right now. >> and we want to bring our viewers into this conversation, as well. i know kimmy from mississippi is joining us by skype. kimmy. >> hi, good morning. >> good morning. >> what would you like to share?
8:18 am
>> well, you know, this past weekend, my -- i have children. i have four children, and one of my children expressed to me that she was scared. she was scared for her dad. she was scared for her brothers, and she said, you know, mommy, if you do all the right things, i mean, what if you still do all the right things and then they still shoot you, and as a parent, that's frustrating, frustrating because i didn't have an answer for her. i didn't know how to respond and i know a lot of parents are hurting. i know a lot of people are angry but, you know, how do you turn all of that into something constructive? how do i prepare my kids for these possibilities? you know, unfortunately, i don't -- i don't want to face them. you know, but i don't know what else to tell my children. how do i talk to my children? >> thank you for that, kimmy. marc, you want to take that? >> i think that's a great point
8:19 am
and that's what my morehouse students were saying. we so-called live the good life, the right thing. we do things the quote/unquote right way. opening eyes to the fact that you can't behave your way out of structural violence. you can't be-your way out of institutional racism. we have to fight so part of what this does is we orient our kids to be realistic about what the world is and what it can be and orient them to turn that pain into power. that means they have a responsibility to not only behave properly but to also help fight the structures and build the structures. that means to organize. that means to change the way we engage ourselves. that means to do community watch. you know, tonight at vh-1 honors we're having our artist community come out and talk about what artists can do to change the music and be involved in the community. every sector of our lives has to be involved with this. there's no easy answers even for our children and that's what hurts so much. >> i know we're getting a wrap. i know you're trying to do that but we need to bring in elizabeth because she has family members who are in law enforcement, and she has a question, as well on skype. go ahead, elizabeth. >> sure. good morning. thanks for having me.

i have two toddlers, and like robin said, i have family and friends in law enforcement, so, you know, i think as you were talking about anger and fear, you know, when we come from a side that we understand better, our gut reaction is to want to protect that or to get defensive, and i'm trying really hard to have this conversation with young children and say that, you know, everybody -- all families are dealing with loss right now. we're losing husbands and wives and people who have six kids or recently became grandparents or whatever the situation might be, and we have to remember these people as individuals and try not to label and box them into stereotypes and things like that so how do you keep a constructive conversation, a positive conversation going when you're obviously very tied to one side of the conversation? >> okay, elizabeth, thank you. >> well, you tell the story and
8:21 am
understand as a parent you're not alone. a lot of parents are saying, i don't know what to say. but i go back to martin luther king. when people would ask him how do you keep it going, your family has been threatened, bombed. he said hope is always there. and i think that's a point where there is pain, there is hope and we have to keep remembering that. >> thank you. >> great last word. we'll be right back. >> thank you both. which has that one scene you forgot about.. so you use your go-to parental blocking device... which also happens to be your go-to snack. baked with real ingredients. no artificial flavors or colors.

8:30 am
7 news.com. join us weekdays 4:30 to 7:00 ♪ all we are saying is give peace a chance ♪ ♪ all we are saying >> some hopeful images people trying to come together after this devastation of the last week and honor those lives lost in the recent shootings. >> you're listening to the young praise children's choir joining us from dallas singing "giver peace a chance" bringing light and hope and we'll have more from those beautiful young voices coming up. >> looking forward to hearing more from them in a little bit. now it's time to hear from serena williams. she made a lot of history at wimbledon. her seventh win, 22nd grand slam title and lara spoke to her moments after that tremendous victory. >> so how do you like the sound of wimbledon champion for the
8:31 am
seventh time? >> it's a great sound. seven wimbledons? it's pretty -- it's cool. >> what is it about this place, centre court? you seem very at home. >> i have to say i was. i felt really comfortable out there. i felt really cool and calm and collected. >> the whole time. >> yeah, pretty much. >> when you won, describe the moment where you drop to the ground. you're laying on the grass, what did that feel like? what was going through your mind. >> it tell so good. every time you win wimbledon it's such a great feeling, you know. >> yeah, i will imagine. >> you know how it is. >> oh, yeah, i totally know what it feels like to win wimbledon. i love the moment when you looked up and you went 2-2. how great to not only win wimbledon but also to tie that elusive open era record set by steffi graf. >> it was awesome. i mean i still really can't believe it. i have 22 titles. wow! i still get a little lost for words when i think about it. >> i'm so proud of you. >> thank you. >> you have the greatest
8:32 am
attitude. you're such an inspiration. >> thank you. >> no loss for words at all and sheekss with her racket. now over to robin. >> yes, it was a magnificent final. we're here now with tony robbins and joe berlinger. tony has inspired so many, 50 million people and counting, including bill clinton, serena, who he said he called after that big victory, oprah, as well to tap into their inner power. now he's the subject of joe's new documentary, "tony robbins: i am not your guru." please welcome tony robbins. and joe. nice to have you both here with us. >> thank you, robin. >> always when i'm in your presence and we were here primarily to talk about the documentary and it's really kind of appropriate because what's going on in the country right now, the world right now, there's all these different emotions and you have shown year after year at your events you're able to bring people from all walks of life together in that camaraderie which you really need to feel, tony. >> we work with people from 100
8:33 am
countries and it's important to remember that everyone in america is hurting, if anybody that we care about, anybody in your family feels unsafe you'd want to do everything you possibly could to support them and i think the black lives matter movement is not about white lives don't matter it's about the fact that blacks in this country, there are situations that have occurred for so many years that have produced a lack of trust and fear. when you see anger, where is coming from? it's hurt and i think the only good news about this is we're hitting a threshold. it takes a threshold for people to finally make real change and we'll have to look at how we make this shift. >> sometimes you have to feel more pain than good to bring about change. >> that's totally true. >> big fan of your work. >> thank you. >> and this documentary is -- you said primarily the reason you wanted to do it is because -- >> well, you know, tony and i met socially. he invited me to do a seminar. i'm not a seminar guy or so i thought. i went, i had an amazingly transformational experience and
8:34 am
said afterwards we have to make this film. he didn't want to do it for two years so i chased him, you know and eventually he relented and it was just -- i just wanted to share with people the amazing experience i had. you know, we live in very divisive times and i've never seen in a room 2500 people, the boundaries between people just melt and people get along and i think in there's more connection that we all feel in life, there would be less problems, you know. >> and joe by his own description told me i'm the most skeptical human being in the world. i study the underbelly of humanity. >> did it change your mind? was it different than you thought? was the event different than you thought it would be? >> i just, you know, you can change your life if you want to. tony gives you those tools. anyone can pursue whatever life they want and tony just helps guide you, make -- guide you into making these decisions and it was incredibly transformative. >> did you learn something about yourself watching it and do you feel it captures the true
8:35 am
essence? >> i was skeptical you could possibly take six-day program for 12 hours a day and convert it into less than two hours but that's why this guy has seven emmys and two academy award nominations. i was blown away by joe's ability to capture really what the essence of that's about in such a short time. >> i was a little worried coming back a second type as a filmmaker would peeking inside the sausage factory so to speak change my enchantment with my first experience and coming back a second time going behind the scenes, having a full access to everything just tripled my enthusiasm about tony. i mean this guy is just killing it for that event, 12 hours a day, for a solid 6 days, it was just amazing to witness. >> i love the title of it because you do not want to be called a guru, motivational speaker because as joe said you give us the tools because i've known you for many years and have used some of the things, success clues but you don't want
8:36 am
to be labeled as such but want to give people the ability to be able to heal themselves. >> yeah, i don't tell people what to believe. i don't tell people how to live but figure out what they value most to make sure they live that because lots of people, you know, think they know what they want. but very few people are acting on it so what blocks us, of course, is fear. what blocks is all the stories. we have all the people we blame, all the situations we blame including blaming ourself. what i'm good at is cutting through that to truth. i think the one thing joe and i had in common that bond us we're so alike. >> yes. >> in every way. >> but what -- >> including our height. >> what blew me away we're both seekers of truth and want to bring the truth to people as corny as it sounds, the truth sets people and it frees your soul and family your business, frees your life. he spent his whole life doing that and in one medium and i've done it another and we've partnered and i'm touched about it. >> it's perfect, the matchup but having seen it, what, joe, you've done these types of
8:37 am
films. what is your hope that people watching it will get out of it. >> it's not that i want him to sign up for tony robbins' seminars, but if they do, that would be awesome but spend the two hours to do something we don't take time to do to think about the direction of our own lives, to think about personal fulfillment. how to be connected with one another because i think if there were more connections between people and people felt more satisfied in their lives, there would be less problems in the world. i really do. >> most people, you know, are letting life take them. most people are not designing their lives, they're making a living and taking just a few minutes to actually think about what you want to do for the next three, four, five, ten years of your life and find out what's stopping you and changing it is incredible freedom and joy for people. >> it's incredible to be in your presence. you just want to bring out the best -- >> so sweet. >> it comes out on netflix friday and it'll be 190 countries translated so friday is the about ig day. we're excited for people to see
8:38 am
it? we are. i do need to ask you this because also part of your event sometimes is the coal walking and recently there were some people who got injured. can you comment on that. >> here's the truth, no one was injured. i've done it for 35 years. this is no different than any one i've done before. on average we have less than half a percent that gets hot spots or blisters. it's not going to stop you if you run a marathon and facing fire and changing your tay and getting over fears and take action is transformational but it's one hour of a four-day process and it's beautiful. but the only difference is somebody came by, didn't know what we're doing, didn't understand the process, saw people and called and said bring four ambulances, this happened about five years ago in san jose and all that was retracted. nobody was hospitalized and people came back the next day so it's really if you want to change your life, no one is forced to do this. we have medical professional there is to take care of them.
8:39 am
it's aloe vera for a blister if anything and we'll continue to do it. >> i appreciate you not shy ago way from it and change the way you think in order the way you feel. change your state. tony, joe, all the best to you. thank you very much for this. part of this conversation, got those big paws. big paws. all right. tony robbins, "i am not your guru" is available as he said on netflix friday. let's go over now to ginger. >> oh, thank you, robin. ladies from iowa. my new friends from north carolina. what are your names? >> hi. >> wanted to yell hi. love it. all right, so let's check. it's beautiful here but you go south of that stationary front and it's going to trap a lot of moisture, storms throughout the southeast. that's for your monday and look what happens here, we call it a summer delight. what you have -- beautiful weather. philadelphia, 88, syracuse, 82, going for a high 82 o >> good morning. i am meteorologist mike nicco. grab the sunglasses.
