attention? >> during the kissing, yes, i was. >> you were laughing at various points with owen, weren't you? >> again, laughing nervously, yes. >> reporter: also taking the stand thursday, the alleged victim's mother remembering the call she says she got in the middle of the night days after the encounter. >> i was just trying to calm her down to understand what she was trying to tell me. she said something bad has happened. >> reporter: and this woman, a school nurse who the girl went to for emergency contraception. >> did you talk about whether the intercourse was consensual or not? >> yes, i did ask her those questions and she said that it was consensual, that it was not coerced. >> reporter: labrie denies he and the girl ever had sexual intercourse. he'll eventually take the stand. >> the defense is trying a few different strategy, doing a little bit of blaming the victim and trying to say she knew what she was getting into. >> reporter: but the girl's family's spokesperson says one
7:33 am
year after the alleged incident the girl is feeling stronger. >> she even asked you to deliver a message. >> she wanted everyone to know that she's not just a victim. she's a survivor. >> reporter: labrie has pleaded not guilty, court is not in session today. so everyone will be coming back here on monday to face that jury of 11 men and 3 women, david. >> all right, gio has been on the case since the start, thanks. to dan abrams and nancy grace from "nancy grace" on hln. first, dan, how did she do? >> she was a good witness, she was smart. she was thoughtful. she was careful about what she said but it doesn't change the fact that the prosecutors have real hurdles here with regard to some of the facts. the fact that she sent these facebook texts which seemed almost flirty after the fact, that she told the nurse it was consensual, these are real problems when it comes to getting a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt. >> but, nancy, this was
7:34 am
difficult to listen to and the prosecutor a grown man asking a teenage girl the kinds of questions we hear in cases like this. >> yes, extremely difficult. i think both sides have big problems, because, remember, the defense is there was no sexual intercourse at all. why is that the defense? because at her age of 15 even if it was consensual the defendant now 19 is looking at a charge of statutory rape, so he can only claim no sex, so let me ask you this, dan abrams, in those flirty e-mails and texts that you refer to, why did the defendant say, praise jesus, i put on a condom halfway through. halfway through what, dan? >> yeah, and that's -- look, there's no question that that's a challenge for the defense except that the most serious charges in this case are not statutory rape charges. that's a nice sort of side point
7:35 am
to make but the reality is we're talking -- >> still a rape. >> talking about a forcible rape case here, nancy, and the bottom line is that the issues that we're raising about the facebook texts, et cetera, even if you're right, even if this jury believes, yes, they had sex, but we're not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that this was forcible and that it was nonconsensual. that's a real problem for the prosecution in this case. >> but, you know, dan, she brings up this notion about what happened whether there was sex or whether there wasn't. how big of a deal is the nurse's testimony that the young woman said it was consensual. >> i think it's a real problem for the prosecution. the there are explanations for it. it's not atypical for a rape victim to not want to disclose what happened. but when it comes to a jury, it's a real problem. it's a problem for the prosecution in this case. but, look, i agree with you. listening to old man asking 15-year-old girls, now 16-year-old girl icky questions,
7:36 am
there's -- it's such a fine line where the lawyer has to be so careful. >> you know what's interesting, you know what's really interesting about what you're saying is that when you actually deal with date rape victims and there's no doubt she met him willingly, she says she was flattered an upperclassman would want to be with her, a 15-year-old lower classman. she thought he was handsome so wanted to meet in the mechanical room at the top of a school building. what's interesting is when you really deal with date rape victims, they feel like it's their fault. they don't want to say, yeah, i went on a date and i didn't complain when i got raped. yes, you're right but tell me this, why would she be asking about plan b if there had not been intercourse? why would she call her mother at midnight and admit, mom, something bad happened. you don't do that when you have consensual sex. why would she go to the hospital after that? >> it is possible -- >> because this happened. >> it is possible that these
7:37 am
jurors could both believe that she's telling the truth and that they're unwilling to convict beyond a reasonable doubt. >> all right, as gio said the case resumes next week. nancy grace of hln and dan abrams in our studio, as always, thanks. we'll get to ginger in the park. >> she made her way to the park and has the latest on the weather. >> i made the short trip to the park but kaelyn andi want to ste front that is affecting much of the east coast this morning and the southeast this is birmingham, alabama, flash flooding all over the roads. be careful there. there's a developing storm that could become a hurricane and turn toward hawaii. we're following that as we get closer to next week. that's the big picture, let's get a check closer to home. >> reporter: elementary, ginger the front i were -- all right,

welcome back to "gma" and time now for the "heat index" and this morning's hot button. a new report raising big questions about breast cancer treatment. as many as 60,000 women a year are diagnosed with something known as stage zero breast cancer and now a new study raising doubts about the effectiveness of early intervention. this morning a new study shedding light on dcis, also known as stage zero breast cancer. as many as 60,000 women each year are told they have these precancerous cells and until now urged to undergo aggressive treatments like a mastectomy and radiation to prevent cancer. >> it is a condition that puts you at higher risk to develop an
8:11 am
invasive cancer. >> reporter: the study that followed 100,000 women for 20 years shows these painful and risky procedures may be unnecessary. the "journal of the medical association oncology report" found only 3.3% of these women die from breast cancer. >> it is not a lethal condition. you won't die from it. so it's important to know you don't have to do more than you need. >> reporter: but the study did find that some african-american women with dcis are still at a higher risk. and joining us now from los angeles is dr. jennifer ashton. jen, thanks for being with us. >> good morning, amy. >> so help us further explain this stage zero cancer. is it technically cancer? >> well, first you have to understand the range of pathology results for this type of breast cancer and it's really a spectrum that goes from normal through a couple of stages to atypical cells to dcis to invasive ductal breast cancer and the key here and the controversy really is in those
8:12 am
middle stages, the atypical cell, the dcis and how best to treat them or should they be treated at all? that's where the controversy is. >> right, so if the recommendation is to do nothing that emotionally has to be frightening to hear as a patient? >> oh, it's not only frightening, this concept of watchful waiting is challenging for the medical community, for doctors and for patients alike. we're already seeing that occur in other types of cancers, for example, in cervical cancer, today we're watching and following certain types of abnormal pap smears where ten years ago those women would have had surgery on their cervix so this is the concept. should this type of lesion be treated and if so, in what type of patient? >> and, jen, it's not just about whether or not dcis should be treated. there is is also disagreement among pathologists about how it's diagnosed, correct? >> absolutely and, listen, we have to remember what the pathologists do when they look at the slide, this is an art and
8:13 am
science. there is a human component, there is a surgical component in terms of margins and can be very, very subtle differences between atypical cells and dcis in some case. >> so, jen, if you're someone who has been told they have dcis or stage zero breast cancer, what is your recommendation as a doctor? >> well, i get this question all the time, amy, from women so the first thing i recommend is stop, take a minute, take a deep breath. this feels like an emergency, and emotionally it really does feel that way but medically you have time. the second thing, if possible, consider asking for those biopsy slides and bringing them to another pathologist for a second opinion. that could be at the same hospital or at a completely different breast center and, lastly, you have to weigh the risks versus the benefits, versus the options and that's the risk of treating versus the risk of not treating versus the benefiting of treating or benefit of not treating and those options. this is not one size fits so so
8:14 am
we'll be following this closely in the future and hearing a lot more about had. >> every cancer is different, dr. jen ashton, thank you very much for being with us. >> you bet, amy. >> great advice there to take a deep breath but it's so hard when a woman and her family lears this. the stress rescue series we've been covering here on "gma." we're taking on fomo, also known as the fear of missing out. a study revealing i was missing out all week. that's why i'm here. it's stressing them out. how do you beat it. abc's abbie boudreau. >> reporter: jobs can be stressful. dating can be stressful. but can social media be stressing you out too? a new article in "the new york times" suggests that scanning scenic snaps and vivacious taylor swift songs and pics of j. lo or amy schumer in the sunset or serene shots from your
8:15 am
own family, friends or co-workers could be bringing you some summer blues. >> as you browse these pictures of other people's lives, that leads people to feel more envy or jealousy and it's those feelings in turn lead you to feel worse over time. >> reporter: it's called fomo, fear of missing out and while the term has been around for awhile, the article now suggests fomo could actually be worse in the summer than the rest of the year. some research even suggesting that strolling through your social media feeds can enhance envy and that even while you're looking at something seemingly relaxing like a setting sun in a tropical paradise, it could actually make you feel worse. >> when you constantly compare your own life to other people's lives, if everyone else's life looks fantastic you're going to feel bad. >> reporter: while facebook and instagram can be helpful for keeping in touch with a far away friend it's also important to get up and do things irl, aka, in real life. >> it's really important to
8:16 am
strike a balance between how frequently we're engaging with these online social networks. >> reporter: so what should you do if seeing your favorite pop stars living large turns you into a green-eyed monster? get up and make some plans and get in some real face-to-face time. >> the more you interact with people directly, the better you feel. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> what amy was saying, you actually feel happy for people when you look at the pictures. >> oh, look where they are but also know no one is posting the fight they just had with their spouse. >> exactly. >> how they felt when they woke up. >> as i get older fomo just goes down and come to the conclusion no matter how great it looks it's definitely not that cool. >> and it's filtered. definitely put an instagram filter on it always. >> even when they say no filter. we figured it out here. moving on to a very remarkable and inspirational story ten years after hurricane katrina, robin returns home to the gulf coast giving us an in-depth look at how the south
8:17 am
is recovering and the resilience of its people and this morning she is taking us back to her hometown in pass christian, mississippi, robin, good morning to you. >> good morning to you too, amy. we affectionately call it the pass and i got to tell you ten years ago i couldn't get here fast enough after the hurricane hit like thousands of others, i was searching for my family so here's a look at what happened after the darkest hours. on august 29th, 2005, hurricane katrina taught thousands of people a very painful life lesson. the place you love and call home can in a split second disappear. >> robin, i know when you left here last night and flew down, you hadn't been able to make contact with your own family yet. have you done so? >> they're okay. >> they're okay. >> they're fine and just so many people, excuse me, so many
8:18 am
people affected by this storm who can't get to the loved ones, i was fortunate enough to be able to get down here and see them firsthand. >> you know for about, what, 24 to 48 hours you didn't know if mom and i were even alive. how was that? i've never even asked you that. >> i remember just saying, i know i'm here to report, but i got to find my mom and my sister. and i know the reason i broke down and cried like i did once i found you all and did my report is because i knew people were tuning in that morning feeling what i had just felt, not knowing about their loved ones. i knew what that felt like. i knew the hopelessness. >> right. >> reporter: my sister dorothy who has lived through the rebuilding always gives her little sis perspective. >> but the important thing that i think we need to have people
8:19 am
remember is that we are moving forward. >> reporter: more than 60,000 homes were destroyed in mississippi. in those early days, after katrina devastated my hometown of pass christian and the entire region, i made a promise. >> you will not be forgotten. >> reporter: "good morning america" adopted the gulf coast with an initiative called "gma" gets it done. i joined amazing, dedicated volunteers from all across the country. each time i returned, i saw the many ways that they have restored their lives. wow. look at it now. ten years ago, you couldn't even see the water. >> right. >> i mean you couldn't even see the street then is there and all the debate. >> reporter: while we'll always remember what's missing. you can see the contrast on seal avenue for the hopes rebuilt but look right across here, there used to be a home here.
8:20 am
>> right. used to be a home there. >> right. you can see steps or part of the structure so there was a home there, there was a home there. what i noticed most is a celebration of life. i see strength. i see beauty. i see our town re-emerging. i see the beauty again, the spirit has never left. >> oh, no. >> i'm actually seeing the pass again. it's been a journey to get here. it's a new building that houses the elementary and middle schools here in pass christian. still hear the voices of my schoolmates, this has all been rebuilt, all been rebuilt. look at this. pass christian school district. number one in state for academic excellence five consecutive years. resilience. that's what i'm talking about. today, all across the gulf coast, i witness this rebirth.

8:22 am
my mom and my family will forever be grateful. what are your memories of that night? >> just the sheer devastation. it was terrible. maneuvering those road, trying to get through there, bringing the camera crew. i remember the big truck and had the power line, trees down. we to take one road and up one road down another and it was just -- it was terrible. i can't imagine what you were going through wondering how your mom was going to be once we got there. >> like you said you have a mom and you were thinking how you would feel in the same situation. >> that's right. that's exactly right. >> so when you look around ten years later and i love -- i remember the first time we heard the train after katrina, that meant that things were going back to normal. we don't mind hearing that train in the distance. what do you see ten years later after katrina? >> just the incredible people. these are true americans, that's what it's all about. they're tough and strong folks and we're getting it done. >> yeah. >> we're coming back, coming back strong and it's going to be better than before. >> it is and some areas are
