tv Good Morning America ABC August 5, 2019 7:00am-9:00am PDT

themselves for others, including the mother of three shielding her 2-month-old. now the suspected shooter in custody. this as we hear from some of these heroes who raced in running toward the gunfire, risking their lives to save others. and in ohio, chaos in downtown dayton. >> we got shots fired. we got multiple people down. we're going to need multiple medics. >> a gunman killing nine people, including his sister, and injuring more than two dozen. the dramatic surveillance images showing people running for their lives and police on the scene taking out the shooter in just 30 seconds, saving countless lives with their quick action. overnight the powerful vigils and the calls for action. president trump set to address the nation this morning, facing questions about how his rhetoric is fueling the violence. now some lawmakers calling for bold measures, demanding congress be called back to washington to act right now. will this time be different? and what you can do to help. our special edition of "good morning america" starts now.
you posed the question, will this time be different. that's what people want to know in this difficult morning all across america. two mass shootings in less than 24 hours and of course we have to keep in mind what happened less than a week ago at the food festival in california as well. >> this is so hard to believe, and overnight communities in dayton and el paso coming together to mourn those who sense bly lost their lives, singing "amazing grace," and demanding leaders take action to stop the gun violence. >> the whole country this morning shaken again by the insanity of mass shootings, forced to confront a uniquely american problem. we have more deaths by guns than any other country in the world because we have more deadly guns. that conclusion is inescapable, and these massacres are increasingly inspired by hate. in just the last 18 months, seven separate shootings by white nationalists. domestic terrorism becoming the threat of our time. >> cannot be afraid to use that
phrase, domestic terrorism. here's what we know at this hour, the two mass shootings happened within 13 hours of each other. a combined 29 people were killed, 53 wounded. the flag at the white house is flying at half staff until sunset on thursday honoring the many victims. and we are live on the scene of both tragedies. "world news tonight" anchor david muir starts us off there in el paso. good morning, david. >> reporter: robin, good morning. as you know, we have been to so many of these mass shootings and it's difficult to describe what it's like when you approach these families whose lives have been destroyed. there was a young mother in this walmart here behind me. she was holding her 2-month-old baby. she was trying to save him from the gunfire. she did save him, but died in the process. the father died as well. that means there are three children without parents, and that is what happens in these massacres across america. this morning we know the suspect
drove 600 miles here from allen, texas with the intent to kill as many mexican-americans as he could. >> go, go, go, come on! >> reporter: this was the horrific scene at the walmart here in el paso, texas. terrified shoppers run for their lives. >> guns in walmart right now, ak. somebody just got shot. >> reporter: frightened families, their hands in the air dashing past armed police. the first call coming in at 10:39 saturday morning. >> we need tactical units to start responding to the help support at the walmart. >> mama! >> let's go, let's go. run, run. >> reporter: authorities say 21-year-old patrick crusius went on a deadly rampage at this walmart in el paso killing 20, injuring more than two dozen more. the gunman shooting his way in. surveillance images obtained by ktsm show the suspect armed with an assault style rifle wearing
ear protection and tactical glasses. and authorities say the assault rifle similar to an ak-47 and several magazines were recovered at the scene. the store was packed with thousands of shoppers. many of the families were looking for back to school supplies. >> he shot eight rounds. i had to pretend i was dead. >> reporter: maribel was shot in the arm and foot. >> he was the calmest person ever. he didn't say anything, just plain hatred. >> reporter: shoppers crawling on their stomachs, seeking shelter wherever they could. >> the situation, needless to say, is a horrific one. >> reporter: andrea gonzalez was shopping with her mother. she heard the gun go off. >> this senior citizen lady that i tried to help, and i couldn't, and i just told her to move faster and she couldn't move faster. so i left her there, and i needed to get out. >> reporter: about 20 minutes after that first shot was fired, police apprehending the suspect
just a few blocks from the scene. authorities are now hunting for clues for a motive behind the bloodshed, and authorities now believe the killer was fueled by hate. >> right now we have a manifesto from this individual that indicates to some degree it has a nexus to a potential hate crime. >> repter: law enforcement telling abc news the shooter is from allen, texas, 600 miles -- >> we're going to pause rest ofn us for a special report. good morning. we're back on the air. 29 dead. 53 wounded in the latest mass shootings in the country.
president trump is coming out to address the country. his rhetoric is fueling some of this violence. also questions about what washington and the president are going to do about guns in this country right now in the wake of the deadly shootings. i'm here with cecilia vega. the president put out a tweet suggesting he wants some action. >> perhaps on background checks. he also tied these shootings to immigration reform. that's not going to fly. there's no incentives on republicans on the hill to move forward on gun control. it remains to be seen how president trump is going to move forward. 12 of the nation's deadliest shootings have happened under president trump's administration's watch. we'll be using to see if he uses the words domesticerrorism and
white nationalists. >> here comes the president now and the vice president now. >> good morning. >> my fellow americans our nation is filled with shock and horror. this weekend there were two evil attacks. on saturday morning in el paso, texas a wicked man went to a walmart store where families were shopping with their loved ones. he shot and murdered 20 people and injured 26 others including precious little children. then in the early hours of sunday morning in dayton, ohio another twisted monster opened fire on a crowded downtown street. he murdered nine people
including his own sister and injured 27 hours. the first lady and i join all americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their families and the survivors. we will stand by their side forever. we will never forget. these barbaric slaughters are an attack upon our nation and a crime against all of humanity. we are outraged and sickened by this evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the blood shed and the terror. our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives. america weeps for the fallen. we are a loving nation and our
children are entitled to grow up in a just, peaceful and loving society. together we lock arm and shoulder the grieve. we ask god in heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer and we vow to act with urgent resolve. i want to thank the many law enforcement personnel who responded to these atrocities with the grace and courage of american heros. i've spoken with texas governor greg abbott and the governor from ohio, as well as the mayor of el paso, texas and the mayor of dayton to express our profound sadness and unfailing support. today we send condolences of our nation to the president of
mexico and all the people of mexico for the loss of their citizens in the el paso shooting. terrible, terrible thing. i have also been in close contact with attorney general barr and fbi director ray. federal authorities are on the ground and i have directed them to provide any and all assistance required, whatever is needed. the shooter in el paso lowepost p manifesto online consumed with hate. in one voice our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. hate has no place in america. hatred warps the minds, ravages the heart and devours the soul. we have asked the fbi to identify all further resources
they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism. whatever they need. we must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. we must stop mass murders before they start. the internet likewise is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution and so many other heinous crimes. the perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored. in the two decades since columbine our nation has watched with rising horror and dread has one mass shooting has followed
another over and over, decade after decade. we can't allow ourselves to feel pour pour powerless. we must honor the sacred memory of those we lost by acting as one people. open wounds cannot heal if we're divided. we must accomplish real bipartisan solutions that will truly make america safer and better for all. first we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs. i am directing the department of justice to work in partnership with local state and federal agencies as well as social media companies to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike. the monster in the parkland high
school in florida had many red flags against him, yet nobody took decisive action. nobody did anything. why not? second we must stop the glor if i indication of violence in our society. this includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace. it's too easy today for troubled youth to sound themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. we must stop or substantially reduce this. it has to begin immediately. cultural change is hard. each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life. that's what we need to do. third, we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment, but when
necessary, involuntary confinement. mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun. we must make sure those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety don't have access to firearms and if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process. that's why i've called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders. today i'm also directing the department of justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively and without years of needless delays. these are just a few of the areas of cooperation that we can
pursue. i am open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference. republicans and democrats have proven that we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this plague. last year we enacted the stop school violence and fixing into law providing grants for school safety and background checks. under my direction the department of justice banned bump stocks. last year we prosecuted a record number of firearm offenses. there's so much more we have to do. now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside. so destructive. find the courage to answer
hatred with unity, devotion and love. our future is in our control. america will rise to the challenge. we will always have and we always will win. the choice is ours and ours alone. it is not up to mentally hill monsters. it is up to us. if we're able to pass great legislation after all these years, we'll ensure that those who were attacked will not have died in vain. may god bless the memory of those who perished in toledo. may god protect them. may god protect all of those from texas to ohio. may god bless the victims and their families. may god bless america. thank you very much. thank you. >> president trump there along
with vice president pence leaving the room of the white house after ten minutes of remarks on what he called the two evil attacks in dayton and texas. the president in his strongest language yet condemning racism and white supremacy said all our nation must condemn, racism, big industry and white supremacy. he said more citizens should call out who they think may be violence. as we should strengthen our mental health laws so that people who have a mental imbalance are treated. he said there should be no access to firearms for those prone to violence and called for the death penalty for those who commit hate crimes.
what he did not call for was any new background check legislation or any new gun control legislation in the few minutes where he spoke. that's what democrats and others have called for in the wake of these latest mass shootings. i want to bring our team in for all this. david muir is down there in el paso. david, i know you were speaking with residents, officials there in the last 24 hours. what were they expecting to hear from the president? do you think they heard what they needed to hear? >> george, one thing that's in escapable to me is what the police chief said, this suspect patrick crusius came from allen, texas, six hours away. just outside of dallas. he could have gone anywhere. he chose el paso because of its
proximity to the u.s./mexico border. what they're concerned about is the rhetoric in this country when it comes to immigration and race. we have heard the president talk about video games and social media, but what we didn't hear is the rhetoric in america and whether that's playing a role. i had a woman talk to me a short time ago. she and her mother were on the floor of the cafe. she showed me the video of him. she said we're scared here in el paso. we need to be protected. they're aware of how heightened the anger is in this country, the hatred. they're desperate for solutions. >> david muir in el paso. eva pilgrim in dayton.
the call for action immediate in that city, eva. >> that's right, george. every time we turn up to one of these cities where a mass shooting has happened people are always in shock. we're definitely feeling a sense of frustration here from people, frustration for something to change and be different. last night they held a vigil for the victims of this attack. the governor of ohio took the stage and he was over powered by chants of do something. people want something substantial. words are not enough. there's a real fear that these mass shootings are becoming our new normal, a new normal in places we've otherwise felt safe. the question is where can you go that you don't have to worry about something like this happening? >> i want to bring in pierre thomas for more on this as well.
one of the other phrases from the president today is domestic terrorism. the fbi, department of justice have been warning this is a major threat right now and it's growing. >> absolutely, george. the fbi is reporting to us that they've seen a surge in hate crimes reported by local police. that's a real ongoing threat. there are currently about 850 open domestic terrorism cases that the nation is facing. george, they're quite concerned that hate is fueling people going out and killing people. we recently have seen a significant spike in people showing up in public places like schools, malls, workplaces to kill. we used to average six of those a year. we're now up to 30 times a year where people are showing up and law enforcement is warning today because of what we saw this weekend there might be potential for more domestic terrorism and copy cats. >> that six-point program the
president laid out does that echo what you're hearing from those in the department of justice? >> it's among the things we're hearing. one thing everyone emphasized is often these killers are putting something online or telling relatives and friends something that is overtly violent and oftentimes people are not coming forward to tell law enforcement. all law enforcement is ema emphasizing people have got to come forward. >> cecelia, you heard the president condemning racism, bigotry and white supremacy. >> the pattern here is the president confronts in his strongest words yet against
whi white nationalism and racism. we saw him do that charlottesville and then he said those famous words there were very fine people on both sides. terry moran asked the president does he believe white nationalism was a growing threat. he said no, i don't believe it is. david sa people in the 2020 race will hear the president's words as empty. they lacked self-reflection. they might challenge him and say they're laying the blame at his feet for where we are in this country. >> how has his rhetoric contributed to the environment? one of the questions will be does the rhetoric today continue in the coming days including on his twitter feed. i want to bring in mary bruce. mary, the president did not have
an explicit call for new gun legislation, anything on background checks. that's one of the things democrats have been demanding. >> you heard the president saying they need real bipartisan solutions and vowing to act with urgency. here in the house they've passed a bipartisan bill that would require universal background checks. an overwhelming majority of americans support it. in the support mitch mcconnell has refused to even call it up for a vote. the president threatened to veto this legislation. the president tweeted suggesting he may be open to strengthening background checks. it wasn't mentioned at all in his remarks. a bit of mixed messaging coming from the white house. the democrats are demanding mitch mcconnell bring law makers back here to washington. as we've seen time and time again, it does not seem there's
a political interest from republicans to address this. >> does it feel different on capitol hill this time that the pressure might build in a way that mitch mcconnell will feel forced to heed those calls and bring the congress back? >> so far we're seeing an all too familiar pattern play out. unless you see increasing pressure from republicans and the president itself it's very hard to see how mitch mcconnell is going to comply with democrats' request that law makers come back here and tackle this. mitch mcconnell has called this violence senseless and sickening, but when i asked his team whether he's going to bring law makers back to washington they said mcconnell doesn't have additional comment. >> again, president trump speaking out against racism, bigotry and white supremacy this
does not provide half of what you provide. and to know that i could save money? i'd be thrilled. this sounds like a whole business package, which would be incredible. so what are you guys waiting for? let's do it.

massacre last october -- >> the subject is talking about all these jews need to die. >> reporter: -- the fbi is seeing a surge of reports in hate crimes involving suspects who identify as white supremacists. >> there has been a rise in attacks inspired by white supremacy activity. >> reporter: the fbi investigating roughly 850 domestic terrorism cases, a significant number involving racial and ethnic hatred. >> there have been more arrests in deaths in the united states caused by domestic terrorists than international terrorists in recent years. >> reporter: if americans are wondering if sometimes new and disturbing incidents are emerging, there is. according to the fbi in the early 2000s the nation averaged roughly six active shooter incidents each year with suspects seeking to kill people in places like malls and schools. by 2017 the number jumped to 30
incidents that year alone, five times more. to combat the carnage, the fbi and secret service have been studying active shooters and mass killers. in a recently released survey, the secret service found that killers wrote about their deadly intentions or said something to family, friends or associates indicating terror was coming. the tree of life synagogue killer wrote anti-semitic creeds online. that nazi who ran over people in charlottesville, killing a woman, shared instagram photographs about running over protestors months before his deadly attack. and on the controversial website 8chan, extremists seem to have found a home. at least three mass shootings this year alone have been announced on the site. in the wake of the latest massacres in el paso and dayton, the site's founder wants 8chan shut down. overnight the network provider cloudflare says it has cut off the site's services for, quote, refusing to monitor their hate-filled community. the secret service maintains that many such assaults could be prevented, that when people see something or hear something, even if it involves a family
member or friend, they have got to tell authorities. the fbi is trying to work with local police to better identify killers before the act. robin? >> thank you, pierre. responsibility but also looking into those who have the ability to make change. >> that's what we're going to talk about now. >> these latest mass shootings are leading to new calls for gun control. listen to this statistic. americans make up about 4.4% of the global population and own 42% of the world's guns. america leads the world in death by gun violence. some lawmakers are calling for congress to cancel its summer recess for an emergency session on guns. the president seeming to suggest he might be open to new measures as well. we want to bring in our senior congressional correspondent, mary bruce on capitol hill with the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. democrats here on the hill are upping the pressure demanding that mitch mcconnell call law makers back to washington to try to do something to address rising gun violence. in the house they passed legislation that would require universal background checks,
measures we know the overwhelming majority of americans support. mitch mcconnell has refused to accept these measures and the president has threatened to veto them. earlier this morning the president suggesting he's open to doing something to strengthen background check. in his remarks he didn't mention background checks at all. despite the growing pressure on mitch mcconnell we've seen a familiar response. democrats are quick to call for increased gun control measures, while republicans, when pressed about their concrete plans to do something to address rising gun violence, they're largely silent. mitch mcconnell over the weekend said the shootings were sickening and senseless and sent his thoughts and prayers to the victims' families. when i asked his team will he call law makers back to washington i would told mcconnell had no additional comment. george? >> mary bruce, thank you.
>> why does it have to be separate, whether it's mental health, gun control, domestic terrorism? >> try everything. >> it's a combination and i don't understand why we have to separate which one it is. >> and saying we send our prayers is not enough. it's not enough for the families. >> something has to be done.don. now we turn to the day's other top headlines. overseas massive protests are erupting again in hong kong, turning violent. pro democracy protestors called a city-wide strike today following a weekend of clashes. hong kong's chief executive says hong kong is on the verge of a very dangerous situation there. in massachusetts where saoirse kennedy hill is being laid to rest today, the 22-year-old granddaughter of the

that oncoming suv veers off the road, launches into the air, hitting the trees. but that officer's quick thinking, he swung into action, turned around and helped those two people inside. the driver said he fell asleep at the wheel. scary. >> we have a lot more coming up. what the fbi is asking you to do to help prevent another mass shooting. shooting. you to body living with hiv? do to help prevent another mass shooting. i you to do to help prevent another mass shooting. n you to do to help prevent another mass shooting. g you to do to help prevent another mass shooting. tarvy. biktarvy is a complete one-pill, once-a-day treatment used for hiv in certain adults. it's not a cure, but with one small pill, biktarvy fights hiv with three different medicines

we are back now with a look at what all of us as citizens can do to address this epidemic of deadly shootings in america. the fbi is calling on everyone to alert authorities if you see something suspicious in person or online. tom llamas is here with more. good morning, tom. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you, and the research shows time and time again mass shooters do show warning signs just before their attacks. law enforcement experts suggest right now early recognition may be one of the best tools available to stop the violence. mass shootings in el paso, dayton, and the garlic festival in gilroy, california. lone gunman with high-powered weapons, unleashing their killing sprees. and though investigations into
these shootings are just getting started, there are questions this morning about whether any of them could have been prevented. were there warning signs missed? >> it's possible to prevent mass shootings because these events are planned out in advance and, most importantly, because those who carry out mass shootings typically tell other people about their violent plans beforehand. >> reporter: a homeland security study into mass shootings found 75% of attackers showed signs that they were about to attack by making angry or racist statements, referring to past attackers, and using suicidal language. but some of the behavior patterns can also be less severe. an fbi study found four out of five active shooters displayed concerning behaviors as subtle as a change in work performance. >> it's okay for people to report behaviors at low levels. law enforcement wants to hear about it. an hr director wants to hear about it. your director of security at your school, your college, your workplace, want to hear about it
because they have training and can look into what else is going on. >> reporter: though research shows most mass shooters are frequently surrounded by people who saw warning signs, 59% did not report the odd behavior in law enforcement. >> even if they're not quite sure what it is they're seeing, the more we can do to simply support the person who's considering violence, we can figure out other ways to help them solve those underlying problems. >> reporter: and especially in schools, the warning signs are often missed. in this psa from sandy hook promise, a nonprofit created by families of those killed at sandy hook, we're showing an average day at high school. but if you look closer, you notice one student showing some telltale warning signs, someone who's often bullied or isolated, has an interest in firearms and might even post about it on social media. according to the most recent stats put out by the fbi, the number of active shooters is growing. we saw that unfortunately this weekend. there is so much research out there, even to the time of day
when these mass shootings likely happen. the vast majority between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. but guys, going through all this research, the stat that stood out to me is what we showed you in the report. nearly 60% of friends and family see these warning signs and they don't call law enforcement. >> countless incidents when people do see something, they do say something and it stops. >> and it stops and they usually say there's four to five signs to look out for and usually in these situations those signs will come out. again, you got to see something, you got to say something. >> can't be afraid to say something. thank you so much, tom. coming up, we have the powerful call for tolerance from one of the newest members of the pro football hall of fame. we'll be right back with that. embers of the pro football hall of fame. we'll be right back with that. and your mother told me all her life that i should fix it. and now it reminds me of her. i'm just glad i never fixed it. listen, you don't need to go anywhere dad. meet christine, she's going to help you around the house. the best home to be in is your own.

and many more out there, we've had the most of the same exriences i've had in my lifetime, we say this to all of our white friends. when we tell you about our fears, please listen. when we tell you we're afraid for our kids, please listen. when we tell you there are many challenges we face because of the color of our skin, please listen. and please do not get caught up in how the message is delivered. >> yeah, very, very powerful speech. being there on stage, the ovation from that -- and i just want people to understand, his presenter who presented him for his induction was a white man and he took that time to make sure that people understood what he went through and what a lot of men of color go through. he wrote this quote. this was at the end of his speech. if we start listening, there's no telling the progress we can make.
all of us are dads, sons, brothers and your friends. all of us understand if we can't get our friends to listen, then no one will. >> smart of him to use that moment like that. >> very smart. good man. >> yeah, good man, as are you. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. we'll be right back. where does your almondmilk almond breeze starts here with our almond trees in our blue diamond orchard in california. my parents' job is to look after them. and it's my job to test the product. the best almonds make the best almondmilk.

>> those communities are banding together in the wake of these attacks. in el paso this sign posted near the scene reading, we are resilient. we are strong. we are el paso. we stand together. >> mm-hmm. the el paso shooting leaving 20 people dead, more than two dozen injured is being treated as an act of domestic terrorism. let's go back to david muir who's there in el paso for us this morning. good morning again, david. >> reporter: robin, george, michael good morning again as we come to you from again another mass shooting. the scene is quite active still behind me. we kw the initial calls came in about 10:30 in the morning on saturday. in this community they were getting ready to send their children back to school. there were thousands of people there in the store shopping for back to school supplies when
they young gunman showed up, 21-year-old patrick crusius. he was wearing hearing protection, tactical eye gear. they believe he came to this community to target mexican americans. he drove 600 miles from allen, texas, outside dallas. authorities are pouring through his own writings. he wrote about the invasion of hispanics. the police chief here, i asked him did he come here because of the make up of this community. the chief was very clear and he said yes. the feds are on the scene. in the last 24 hours they made it clear they'll push for domestic terrorism, hate crime charges. the suspect has been charged with capital murder. the thoughts in this community have been mirrored by all of the leaders here, the authorities here. they're very clear when they say more needs to be done about the
rhetor rhetoric, about what's being said in this country and the temperature overall about mexican americans, immigration and hate. robin? >> give us more a sense on the ground there, such resilient people there in el paso. >> i can tell you the people of this community have banded together already in the wake of this unspeakable act here on saturday morning. in fact, i was just talking with a woman who was inside the walmart, inside the cafe with her mother when the shooting began to take place. she actually showed me video she had on her phone. they crawled underneath the tables in the cafe. you can see the gunman as he begins to approach them. she is convinced the only reason the gunman turned around was because he heard noise from people running out of the store. then he turned back into the store and began firing again. she's convinced that's the only reason they're alive. she said to her 91-year-old
mother, mom, you can get back up now. we're safe. there were stories of the children who ran from this store on the own a the heros who scooped them up to make sure they were safe. robin. >> i know you'll have much more tonight on "world news tonight." david, thank you we want to go to dayton now. of course that was the scene of the other mass shooting over the weekend. we see the mourners gathered overnight for the candlelight vigil for the 9 people killed and more than two dozen injured. abc's eva pilgrim on the scene. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. what was supposed to be a fun night out turning to tragedy for so many people who came here over the weekend. a gunman opening fire early sunday morning in this busy entertainment district. it's packed with restaurants and bars. surveillance video showing those people running for their lives. police were fast. they were here and within 30 seconds on the scene killed the suspect. the crowd franticly searching for their friends and loved ones.
first responders and good samaritans treating those victims on the street. we've heard just the most incredible stories of people trying so desperately to help each other. the alleged shooter was killed by police and authorities say he was wearing body armor, a face mask and carrying an ak style rifle and multiple high capacity magazines. this morning 26 people are in the hospital. at least 9 people, 5 men and 4 women, killed. one of the big questions that still exists in this case is why. authorities have searched the gunman's house, but at this point they have not released any type of motive, george. >> just senseless. eva, okay. thanks very much. coming up, how to handle the anxiety and fear in the wake of these shootings. the conversation to have with your children, and how you can also help calm your own fears. >> that's definitely important. and we have a health alert about sesame allergies. more common than you think and we have the unexpected places sesame is found. dr. ashton is here with that.

welcome back to "gma." as america tries to come to grips with the mass shootings that continue to plague our country, it's hard for us to understand and address but even more difficult for our kids. >> it really is and yet it's a conversation many of us are facing all too often. so we have experts here to help us navigate this difficult topic. psychiatrist dr. janet taylor and author and educator rachel simmons. thank you both. >> good morning. >> this is a very important conversation. >> let's begin with you. what's your basic advice to parents about how to approach this? >> first of all, limit screen time because we want to think about how much exposure our
children have. ask open-ended questions, like, tell me what you know about the shootings. lastly, think about our role as parents where we are feeling vulnerable ourselves but it's our duty to create a safe container for our children and by helping them re-establish their safety, we also can re-establish our own. we need a lot of pep talks too. >> i remember as a child when something would happen, i would look to my parents and i would really model my reaction to how they're acting. so parents really need to know this. >> it's true. it's so important for us to show our feelings in front of our kids. it's just as important to do that as it is to look tough because we are cueing our kids about how to cope emotionally, giving them guidance on how to feel when a tragedy like this strikes. >> how do you gauge how much to share? >> i think that's the million dollar question and i think that's the art of parenting. you don't want to overwhelm your child with too much information. that's why i think dr. taylor -- we were talking earlier and she said ask open-ended questions and ask them what they know because so often kids get misinformation on the school
bus. you want to find out what they know first. >> what should you be on the lookout for, if you think your child is struggling? >> look at a difference in their activities. maybe they're more afraid to go to school or want to stay up later or they overeat or undereat. our children, even though they want them to be in touch with how they feel, they don't often say i feel this or that. they may act out or not want to do homework. be patient with them, listen, and if they need an extra cuddle, now is the time for face-to-face time. turn off the video games. we have to unplug as parents and pay attention to the nonverbal cues and be there for our kids. >> is there more that we can do to ease the fears and more that we can do in this regard and ourselves? >> number one is we have to tap into our own feelings but help them understand that life is tough and there are things that are unpredictable, but to the extent you can help them what they're in control of, a safety plan, having their cell phone charged, who they can go to
help. understanding there are still more good people than bad people, there are times they're going to be afraid, but they need to come to us and talk to us because chances are we're afraid too. but we've got them. we'll hold them. >> you have a simple exercise that kids can go to. >> i do. when we're anxious and especially when kids are anxious their thoughts feel out of control. they can't get out of their head. so i suggest you can do this in front of your kid. you don't have to make them do it. like me, if you have an eye roller at home you may want to model it. take a deep breath, count to three, hold it for three and out for three. it's sort of nine seconds of breathing in and breathing out. do it three times. they can drop back into their bodies and feel a lot calmer. >> i can remember as a child coming from the mississippi gulf coast to new orleans. it was a big city for us to come to and i just had a panic attack. i couldn't go -- we were having lunch and all of a sudden something i had watched on tv or something and i didn't want to go outside and i remember my parents were really good about not pressuring me and just really having that discussion but i can remember vividly being overcome. >> but they were there for you.
>> it's okay to feel scared too. >> now more than ever we need to check in with our kids, like face-to-face. i can't emphasize that enough, just looking at them and talking to them and tune out all these devices. >> remember it's okay to be anxious. everyone is anxious. the goal is not to stamp out our kids' anxiety but give them a space where they can feel their feelings and let them know where we're here holding them. >> don't pretend it's not having. >> you can't make false promises to your kids. you can't guarantee everything is okay. but you can say here are the good people that we know and here's our home and we're safe and we love you and we're going to try every day to be safe together. >> great advice. >> thank you both very much. we have more information on our website and rachel simmons and dr. janet taylor is going to stick around to keep the conversation going. you can join them on "good morning america's" facebook page in a few minutes. let's go to ginger. let's do a "gma" moment this morning. it comes to us from chicago. i don't know about all of you but i feel like math is one of those things, the subject of
math is tough to remember as you get older. well, not for porsche. >> what's 10 divided by 5? good girl. what's the square root of 9? what is it? what is it? good girl. >> yeah. a genius. porsche is a genius. we just need lessons from her. >> good morning. check out this sunrise. isn't that absolutely gorgeous? we'll be partly sunny today with temperatures close to average. we'll see a dip in those temperatures in the middle part of the week, below average, but summer is coming back in time for the weekend. mid-60s along the coast in san francisco to some low 90s inland. a lot of 70s and 80s in our neighborhoods. tonight with the cloud cover, mid-50s to mid-60s. below average highs away from the coast t t t t t t t t t t t [ cheers and applause ] now we have a "gma" health alert. there's a new warning about
sesame and new research estimates more than a million people in the u.s. are allergic. sesame could be in foods you may not realize. dr. ashton is here with us. doc, what does the study tell us? >> michael, this is interesting. it was kind of a deep dive about who's affected and how many people are affected and to what severity to an al her gin that we don't commonly think about, sesame. >> we always hear about nuts but not sesame. >> exactly. so again, the answer is a lot more than we think. over a million american adults and children, and the symptoms can be severe, and what i want to point out here is that sesame can fly under the radar and appear in sauces, chips. if you look at this ingredient list, it doesn't have to say sesame. there can be ingredients with names that you might not recognize as containing sesame, so this is about awareness and it can be a major issue. >> you would expect for it to say sesame. >> exactly. sometimes it does but sometimes
it's masqueraded. >> for someone who does partake and does not know and they're having a reaction, family and friends are there, how should they react to that? >> a lot of people think allergic reaction and might only think of one symptom but i want people to understand that the symptoms can be very diverse. skin irritation is actually the most common with sesame. that could be hives, itchiness, rash. you can get digestive issues, nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, fainting and the most deadly, anaphylaxis. this drives many people to an emergency room every single year, both adult and children. it hits personally for me because i have a life-threatening food allergy as well. >> for somebody like yourself who has an allergy, how can you protect yourself? >> the key is awareness and then there are some things that take time but in terms of practical -- we put them over here. planning ahead, if you're going to be out somewhere, it helps if you know what you're going to be doing, if you need to bring your own food. read labels. cook with caution. and when you go to a restaurant
or a party, tell everyone. i tell the server 1,000 times, i'm allergic to this, i'm allergic to this. the more people that know, the better. these are my epinephrine injectors. if you're diagnosed with a food allergy, never leave home without it. >> effer -- >> an epinephrine >> in other words an that's what i'll stick with. thank you so much. this is informe because this is something that's been ignored. >> i'll show you how to use it. >> i don't want to know how to use that. i'm going to run over here because we have "pop news" with lara spencer. what you got, lara? was that my intro? i was enamored by your tie. good morning, everybody. good morning to you. we begin with pop star taylor swift hosting a secret listening party at her home in london over the weekend, inviting some of her most loyal fans to hear her upcoming album "lover." so far she's only released three songs, all of them popular
already. one fan who was there posted that the entire album is amazing and very emotional at times. we won't give much more info than that. fans were sworn to secrecy. swift asking them to keep the songs' names, lyrics and collaborators under wraps. maybe someone's talking though. there are reports that katy perry sings on one song and selena gomez also contributing. that's exciting. the new album "lover" drops august 23rd, one day after taylor swift joins us live on "gma." >> that's right. [ cheers and applause ] >> august 22nd, we will be there. >> we can't wait. also in london, duchess meghan celebrating her 38th birthday on sunday with a little help from her royal relatives. duchess kate and prince william took to instagram to wish her a happy birthday. sharing this photo of the fab
four, and prince charles and camilla also posting, quote, a very happy birthday to hrh, the duchess of sussex, along with sweet photos. of course her sweet prince charming posting, happy birthday to my amazing wife. thank you for joining me on this adventure. love, h. isn't that cute? that's his cute little nickname. i love you, r. this is meghan's first birthday as a new mom. she reportedly celebrated at home with baby a. >> you just take a theme and you run with it. love that about you. >> it's called beating. >> good. in sports news, i guess winning this year's all-star mvp award apparently is not enough for cleveland indians pitcher shane bieber to get the credit he deserves. baseball card topps has his name as justin.
oh, shane. shane called out topps on twitter with one sarcastic word, writing nice. they took the slipup in stride posting, is it too late to say sorry? >> that's pretty good. [ applause ] >> of course a line from one of justin's songs. apparently this isn't the first time this has happened to shane. during player's week last year he chose this for his jersey. >> the intern who came up with that tweet a hero. >> absolutely. finally, the buffalo bills have a new play that shows how quick they are on their feet. it's called the electric slide. >> uh-oh. >> we love this video they posted. this is mostly the defensive line, michael. >> we got good feet, big guys. >> big guys can move, baby, showing the fancy footwork that their foes can expect to face this season. stray, did you guys warm up like this? >> yep, every day. i'm doing it right now.
>> still got the moves. >> it's the seat slide right there. but you have to -- >> when you did the slide brady knew watch out. >> yeah, tom brady, we coming for you, watch out. but you can have fun at work. how about that? tough business they're in and enjoy yourself, brother. you should every moment. [ applause ] >> thank you, lara. we turn now to sports and your children. are you sitting on the sidelines cheering them on? becky worley took a look at some of the products that can make the experience of being supportive a little more comfortable because we know how it can be there in those games. tell us about it, becky. good morning. >> good morning, robin. yeah, the amount of time that sports parents spend driving kids, hauling gear, watching games or practices, it's immense. of course we get the right gear for the kids but you, soccer mom, cross-country dad, you deserve some good gear too.
>> reporter: it's game time, parents. and while we spend so much energy on kids' gear, what about us? thankfully joanne chen, newly minted baseball mom, is thinking about the parents. >> make sure you stay healthy and safe while you're watching your kids playing and make sure that you're comfortable which makes the experience so much more pleasant. >> reporter: first, wire cutter says the renetto canopy chair is the throne of the sideline. this thing is awesome. complete with shade, side pockets and a comfy seat. at 16 pounds, it's a little heavier than some options, but the shoulder straps help. if this is the throne of the sideline, i am the queen of the soccer moms. now food. cheese sticks, have i mentioned you got to bring cheese sticks. >> not all fields are near a
snack bar so oftentimes you have to bring your own. >> reporter: wire cutter likes this ao soft cooler but also recommend the polar bear backpack cooler. cooler on the back, i've got the chair over the arm. locked and loaded. these soft coolers have gotten way better at keeping ice from completely melting and water logging your sandwiches. the hydro flask is wire cutter's bottled choice. >> they put 47-degree water in it and tested it every hour for 17 hours and it still stayed cool. >> it's great for adults and -- here, sweetie -- kids too. you got this, sweetie. go get 'em. and about the cheering. >> one coach told me to stay positive or stay in the car. there are really only two things you should say after a game and that's, did you have fun? i loved watching you play. because it really is, at this level, just having fun. >> reporter: and we did all have
fun. now we should tell you that like other websites, wire cutter gets a percentage of money from products sold on their website. i've got one more tip. uniforms and keeping them organized, what a headache, but these mesh laundry bags let kids put their whole uniform inside after the game. >> that's good. >> zip it up. it goes into the wash, comes out clean, and that includes that one shin guard that's always missing. >> that's it. >> that's great advice. >> becky, thanks as always. we appreciate that. [ cheers and applause ] >> we'll be back.

[ applause ] >> all right, now, originally you were not going to be a part of the series and then -- >> yeah. >> your dear friend luke perry passed away and that changed your mind a little bit. >> yes. i feel like last time i cried so much and this time i'm going to try to rein it in.
but yeah, it was nothing against the show. it just -- it didn't -- i just didn't want to go back there. luke passed away and it came back around to me and i just felt like, wow, you know, we created so much together on 90210, our characters and our relationship, that love between the two of us, that it felt like the right thing to do, going back and being a part -- i don't need those tissues yet. don't be bringing them. >> very subtle. >> i'm keeping it together today. i'm going to keep on snapping myself with my rubber band. so yeah, it just felt like the right thing to do is to go back and do a show that i know meant so much to him. >> that's beautiful. >> what was it like to be back with everyone without having luke there though? >> surreal. i mean, it was surreal all of us together again and sort of
realizing that you're missing a key component, that you're missing -- you're missing some heart. you know, luke was all heart and all humility and beauty and grace and humor and just grounding, earthy human being. so he was missed sorely for sure. >> but you're going to pay tribute to him because you're going to do a guest appearance on the season premiere of "riverdale." >> yes. >> what a great idea. >> so what can you tell us about that? >> i can tell you that i read the script and i bawled my eyes out. i'm so beyond honored that they asked me to do this and luke had been wanting me to join "riverdale" for a really long time. he sort of was harassing the producers probably to the point where they were like, no, absolutely not. but it's a beautiful episode
that is nothing but a tribute to his character and to luke himself. i'm beyond happy and honored that i got to do this again for him. >> let's talk a little bit about "bh 90210," more about that. >> yeah. >> it's not really a reboot. it's not a reunion. how would you describe it? >> it's like a revival set in a reboot. >> oh. >> how about that. >> you got our interest. >> yeah. so it's sort of all of us playing supposedly heightened versions of ourselves, deciding whether we're going to join tory on her idea of doing a reboot, and then, you know, if we do, if we don't -- we do. >> spoiler alert, spoiler alert. >> i'm not good at keeping secrets. then it's about sort of the making of and how that process is.
>> the amazing thing is it's been 30 years since the show first premiered, 30 years. [ applause ] long time. but, it still has a huge fan base, so why do you think the show has been so relevant even 30 years later? >> i think that people are into being nostalgic right now, right? we're all living in a very rough day and age and with so much violence that's going on, i think that people want to be taken back to a different time right now. so i think that's a component. i think that the fact that "90210" back in the '90s was kind of cutting edge but it also came into everybody's living rooms and you were all able to sort of feel for at least one of the characters. parents were able to talk to their kids about certain issues because we brought them up on "90210" and you really grew up with those characters so people feel connected to brenda and brandon.
it's there. obviously darren starr did a great job and aaron spelling sort of knew what people wanted and then you got a cast that just had this sort of aming chemistry together and i think that that continues to transfer over even now. >> it's timeless. >> yeah. >> it's timeless, absolutely. >> it's timeless and so is that '90s fashion. that was timeless too. i had to go there. >> the mom jeans, oh my goodness. >> they came back, what are you talking about. >> i know. why are they back? >> we don't know why they came back but we know why you guys came back. we're so happy for "bh 90210." it premiers wednesday night. shannon doherty, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] coming up, john fogerty is performing live. we'll be right back with more "gma."
we are back with a brand new way to help people talk through their challenges and promote mental health. for those who may not have access to professional therapy, this program offers a peer who will listen for free. will reeve here to explain it. i love this program. >> reporter: george, it's really great, and sometimes all we need is just someone to talk to, especially in places where
mental health counseling is scarce or unaffordable or stigmatized. this new york city program brought over from africa is here to listen, to help, and to be a friend. many of us think of therapy like this. >> why don't you tell me why you think you need therapy. >> reporter: but what about finding a listening ear on a public bench right in your own neighborhood? >> that's all it takes. it takes one conversation to change somebody's life. >> reporter: a new program in new york city is trying to change the way people get therapy by offering peer to peer mental health conversations on these bright orange friendship benches. >> how would you describe your approach to connecting with people on this bench? >> i don't need your name. i don't need to know where you live. i just need to know how are you doing? >> reporter: helen skipper who goes by skip leads the peer teams and steve lopez works as a peer, sitting at the many benches around the city. they aren't certified therapists but they still offer something invaluable, and not found in a book, school our office.
>> peers are individuals with lived experiences. i'm talking about addiction, substance abuse, homelessness, incarceration, brutality, violence, intimate partner violence, all these things. >> do you find that people open up to you more when they know that you've been through the same experiences? >> oh definitely yes. 110%, yes. >> takeisha white believes these friendship benches are the answer to a happier society. the benches began in zimbabwe a program created by a doctor who trained grandmothers living in the community to support and listen. >> they told them their stories and their depression symptoms went away, their anxiety went away. >> reporter: today friendship benches are popping up throughout new york city but their impact could spread across the country to the millions of americans with mental health needs. >> imagine a possible future patient of the friendship bench program is watching this interview. what do you want them to know? >> i want them to know that they have everything that they need inside of themselves.
your pain is not imagined. the environments around us are challenging. if you would just take the time to not hold that as your responsibility and just connect with your thoughts, you will find relief. >> the friendship bench program often acts as a first step. peers will take patients to clinics or rehab facilities or anywhere else they may need. george, a lot of time all the patients need is someone to have a conversation with them and we're honored to be a friend to takeisha and skip who are here today. [ applause ] they're doing great work. >> if you saw those smiles you would want to talk to them. >> sit down and unload whatever it is that you need and they will have lived it with you. it's really important. >> terrific program. thank you for bringing it to us. ginger. >> everyone needs access to therapy. i love that.

>> i can't even imagine what it's like growing up with these two iconic, very large personalities. do you have any good embarrassing stories because now is your chance. >> gosh. i feel like we have so many. >> dating-wise it's difficult. >> my dad is such a softy and emotional but when there's a guy involved he puts on this military -- like he'll go knocking on doors, you know. >> when someone comes to pick me up for a date, you just see a giant silhouette standing at the top of the balcony. i'm like, we got to go, keep the car running, let's go. >> that's amazing. what's it like to now see your names on billboards? they have been there, they have done it. they must be so proud but for you guys now to be in this position. >> i think it's really surreal. i remember i was at arc light last weekend in sherman oaks and i saw my giant -- a billboard was just like huge all over the place -- >> to see our names too, it's cool.
