the supreme sacrifice while on the job. thousands of surviving family members traveled here from all over the country, as far away as california and the u.s. territories to pay tribute as well as fellow law enforcement officers. they found the names of their loved ones along the memorial wall. they left poignant momentos. in 2011 there was an alarming jump in law enforcement fatalities for the second year in a row. 2012 has seen a reversal of the trend. >> these men and women placed the safety and security of others above their own when facing uncertain dangers and confronting unpredictable threats. they consistently respond with courage, with selflessness and with strength. ength. >> i lost my best friend, andrew thomas wall. he was a tennessee state trooper, died in a motorcycle accident. he was a motorcycle officer. >> reporter: the national memorial wall contains the

i love my job and signed up for the job before i had children. >> initially it was aiden's idea to go ahead and surprise mom at work. so we just kind of rolled with it. >> stephanie's husband is a firefighter, too. so he understands her schedule. for a mother of three in ashburn mother's day is not about gifts for her. instead this mother is giving other special moms the very thing they need most, but it's her own long journey that may impress you the most. fox 5's audrey barnes has her inspiring story. >> reporter: a little mother's day play time at the melton house in ashburn, but wasn't all fun and games today. earlier glennon and her husband craig took the kids to the cemetery so she could share her life's mission with the grandmother who inspired it all. >> she died of cancer when my dad was 14 and so i just went there with my little family to just tell her about what we're doing for moms now who have cancer. >> reporter: what she's doing is starting a helping healing
revolution through her blog called mama stery. monks was too serious of mascot for her followers, so they become monkeys. >> we built this community of people who were telling the truth and working hard to understand each other, people who were very different but who had the common goal of loving each other better and understanding each other better. >> reporter: one way they do it is through what melton calls love flash mobs online. >> i post it in on the blog and we call that the start of the flag mob and then people everywhere just all over the world start dancing. >> reporter: actually they start donating, $25 max. the goal for this mother's day love flash mob was a fully equipped handicapped accessible van for a woman with lou gehrig's disease and another for a woman with stage 4 lung, bone and liver cancer.
>> we raised $73,000 in 50 hours and so yes, the donations were coming in six a minute. >> reporter: both ladies will be getting their van soon, but melton says it's the people around the world who donated who are getting the real gift this mother's day. >> it's we adopt mother teresa's saying which is we can do no great things, but we can do small things with great love and that's what we prove during these love flash mobs. everybody has something to give and that when we all add our little offerings together that they can make big miracles. >> and glennon melton maybe the biggest miracle of all when she walked away from life of bulimia and alcoholism cold turkey and turned to a life of family and service to others. she also writes for the huffington post and is now working on a book and if i have to work on a mother's day to spend a moment with you and
glennon, it was amazing. >> i'm blown away by how one person -- you hear about how one person can make a difference. look what this woman has done. >> she's sent kids home to africa who wanted to find her birth families and has done things for people with all kinds of diseases and recently for a family who never had resources, sent them to captiva and they got to stick their toes in the sand for the first time. >> got bless her and i hope she keeps up the great work. >> audrey, thank you for the story and happy mother's day. your first one? >> if is. >> thank you, great job. so how does a company returning now to serious news here, how does a company lose $2 billion in a short time? that's what the ceo of jpmorgan is trying to explain as bank makes a major shakeup. >> a big week at the maryland statehouse, lawmakers trying to clean up a political mess. stay with us. we're back right after this.

supports about 70% of dodd frank, the regulations put in place after the financial crisis but that this huge loss would not have been stopped by the rule that is being finalized and will in theory stop banks from making money for making bets for their own profit but he said this bet was a hedge against potential loss, but senator carl levin said he's going to close the loophole which let this happen. >> the law as written will prevent us from bailing out banks again and we have to make sure they don't take the kind of risks that we're tape. >> reporter: but republican senator john cornyn thinks jpmorgan just proved that dodd frank is a dud. >> i think there needs to be oversight investigation to find out what exactly happened and why the president's signature of the financial services reform bill didn't do anything to stop it. >> reporter: the chairman of the rnc made his position clear saying he thinks there should just be less regulation. in washington peter doocy, fox
news. yahoo's ceo scott thompson is stepping down after less than five months on the job. s had resignation comes -- his resignation comes amid controversy over a computer science degree that he has never received. yahoo oates global media head ross levinson will serve as the interim ceo. the focus of the presidential election shifted last week from the economy to same sex marriage. now americans are wondering if this should be an issue on which they choose a president. fox' steve centanni has more. >> reporter: with the president's announce. he now supports same sex marriage the issue is suddenly a hot political topic. one key democrat says she went through parennal transformation like president obama did. >> you get to -- a personal transformation like president obama did. >> you get to know more and
more gay couples and see the happiness and you see the economic security that marriage brings and even more fundamentally, you see children who otherwise would not have an adopted home being able to have that home and so same sex couples raise children. they do a fine job. >> reporter: the president may have energized his political base with the announcement especially since one in six of his key fundraisers is gay, but democrats and republicans alike predict the issue will have little impact on election day in november. meantime the issue has also energized evangelical christians, the presumed gop phenomenon any mitt romney appeared at liberty university, a strong hold of conservative -- nominee mitt romney appeared at liberty university, a stronghold of conservative politics. republicans say that president obama is trying to change the subject. >> how do we get the economy growing and get people back to work? to me that's the issue on the minds of most americans.
>> reporter: neither president obama nor mitt romney had any campaign events today. steve centanni, fox news. >> mitt romney made headlines in virginia this weekend and possible tax hikes are on the table in maryland this week. help being us break it down is fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. let's start with mitt romney at liberty university, lynchburg, virginia yesterday. he drew a big response with his comments on gay marriage. let's listen to that first. >> what you believe, what you value, how you live matters. now as fundamental as these principles are, they may become topics of democratic debate from time to time, so it is today with the enduring institution of marriage, marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman. [ cheering and applause ] >> we heard from the political experts there in steve centanni's package. do you think gay marriage will be a deciding factor come
november? >> i think it will be a much more important factor than what your reporter said. you go back to 2004, if i can, maureen, engage in police cal esoterics. >> go -- political esoterics. >> go right ahead. >> john kerry lost the state of ohio and the reason many people felt was because there was a constitutional or ballot issue about same sex marriage on the ballot and that energized the base and kerry lost. i think they took a gamble, president obama, and numerically it probably even though the country is evenly divided, you now have a base in terms of evangelicals and that's why romney was at liberty. it was the largest crowd he's ever addressed during the campaign. you saw him with jerry fallwell jr. there. >> i want to thing this up. he didn't discuss his mormon faith at all. did he miss an opportunity to
talk about it, perhaps help put this controversy to rest right now right here? >> no. i think that was deliberate not to talk about it. remember, he made a speech in 2007 which tried to explain it. it really didn't go over well. many christians don't think mormonism is a part of christianity and is even a cult. i think they have made a calculated decision that it's no good to bring more attention to it and instead he stressed the judeo christian tradition and it was very important that he go and be seen in that venue and appeal to those people and because those people are the base of the republican party and they need to be excited and enthused because they surely weren't during the primaries. >> let's move to maryland where the governor has called lawmakers back into session to make changes to the budget plan. he wants to raise taxes and fees. in a nutshell explain what's going on and how this could affect the governor's -- >> well, there's $500 million
shortfall. they have to have bailed budget in maryland. the president of the state senate mike miller and the house speaker mike bush are not the president of each other's fan club because even though they're democrats and the governor was criticized roundly for not intervening personally and getting into this fix. now they're supposedly all love and kisses and harmonious and they're going to raise personal income tax, state personal income tax, for single people who make over 100,000 couples that make over 150,000. what is not going to be discussed is -- and also they're going to try to help the counties in terms of -- or really not help the counties -- hurt the counties by sending state revenue there, but what they're not going to decide is gambling. there very well might be a second special session and rushern baker in prince george's county are not going to be pleased about this, but
this is to tidy everything up and also make martin o'malley who would like to be president four years from now say look, i got the legislature together, but he took a bruising on this as not being an effective leader. >> we have to leave it at that. i know you'll be at that session tomorrow and we look forward to talking to you perhaps this week. a little boy takes his first steps at 6 years old and the story gets even better, how mom managed to surprise dad coming up next.

representing 16 muslims barred from flying is trying to get the list ruled unconstitutional and is back in court this week arguing its case. >> in the modern day air travel is absolutely fundamentally important to how we travel on a daily basis and that right to travel is protected by the constitution's promise of due process. >> reporter: around 500 u.s. citizens are on the no fly list including jamaal tarhuni, a portland businessman who was prevented from boarding a flight home from tunisia following a trip to his native libya with the christian group medical teams international. he was stuck there an extra month, interviewed by federal agents for hours and finally allowed to fly home, but he's still on the list and says he's never been told why. >> they can ask anything they want, but what i know and i'll be more than happy to answer because i have really nothing to hide about what i have done in libya or how live my life in the united states. >> reporter: tarhuni worships at the islamic center of
portland, a focus of several terror investigations. its imam is also on the no fly list, once accused of funding the so-called portland six, a group from the mosque convicted of conspiracy to levy war against the u.s. more recently mohamed mohamud was charged with trying to detonate a fake car bomb at a portland christmas tree lighting ceremony. he, too attended the mosque. larry chandler is a member of the joint terrorism task force. >> i don't think the mosque itself is any threat at all. it's the activities of the people who attend that location. >> reporter: an fbi official says to get on the no fly list someone must be considered a threat to an aircraft or the passengers. to give them an explanation he adds would jeopardize security. at issue for the courts is do people have a right to fly and does the government have a right to keep them from flying without telling them why? in seattle dan springer, fox news. the fbi is searching for one of their own special

cal -- problem. the closer you get to southern california's major transportation centers, the harder it is to build a train. >> to get the right-of-way they need to cut through so many cities it would be too difficult. >> reporter: instead the train will start outside victorville, california, a desert city of about 120,000 people more than 90 miles from the hoped for starting point of los angeles or anaheim. this is literally the end of the road. we're off the 15 in the middle of the mojave desert for the proposed site for this train. you go 90 miles that way and hit l.a., 188 miles that way and you hit las vegas. the question is would you drive from l.a., park your car here, hop on the train to get there? >> i don't think the people of los angeles, which is where we'll be drawing most of the riders, are going to buy driving a train halfway to vegas.
