6:42 pm
and as soon as i walked on, and she lived on my grandparents' floor. when i walked on, she got off. and i was puzzled. i said, do you want to come up? and she said no. and then i went up, and then i saw the elevator going back down and i just kind of peeked out the peephole and i could see she came right back up, but was just worried about riding an elevator with me. >> reporter: tonight, families of loved ones who have been killed in police encounters. families of police officers who did not come home from work. and the little boy who stood up and revealed his plan to the president. that was an inspiring moment. so much heart ache in one room. there were calls for change on all sides. the president and the people, a national conversation. the president taking difficult questions about police officers putting their lives on the line. if this country has their backs. about black lives matter, versus all lives matter. and about what we can do to find
