consequences of the massacre of t . joining me now, his district includes charleston county, from the radio show. how is the community doing in general? it's so easy for news media to move on. you all are still working through this, clearly. >> yes. day by day. day by day. we're working to get back to a normal way of life, but at the same time still remembering, and that interview that you just played is so very, very important, i think, for us to individually and collectively understand that we owe it to the memory of these people to work to operate with more understanding, more togetherness, more love and to try to put a halt to some of the hate that has been involved in politics in our world right now. >> i wanted to ask you a little bit about the confederate flag. obviously -- you know, the huge national outcome that emerges as a result of this massacre is that flag coming down in south carolina. but i'm wondering if once it came down we thought, okay, great. we've had a win? and whether or not there is some other way we ought to be doing justice to these victims and to these survivors.
