this is "today" with savannah guthrie and hoda kotb live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza and good morning, everybody. welcome to "today. nice to have you with us on a tuesday morning, and shh because amy bockerstette has no idea that her hero, the newest u.s. open golf champ will be right here in our studio to surprise her in a moment. >> bathat 20-year-old who inspie gary woodland, perhaps his biggest fan. some breaking news, the tension's really escalating between the u.s. and iran. the pentagon announced overnight 1,000 more u.s. troops being sent to the persian gulf nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely is in the capital of qatar for us once again this morning. >> reporter: good morning savannah yes, yet another show of force, more u.s. troops on their way here soon. more tension in the persian gulf almost day by day. iran vowing this morning it
won't wage war, but of course threatening to ramp up its nuclear production, and the u.s. releasing new evidence of iranian troops at work another boost for american fire power in the gulf, the u.s. will send another 1,000 troops to the middle east citing hostile behavior by iran that's on top of an extra 1,500 announced just weeks ago, and the u.s. is building its case that iran attacked two ships in the gulf last week with new photographs. the u.s. says these iranian troops are removing an unexploded mine from the side of a japanese tanker. pieces of the mine still attached by magnets. iranian fingerprints apparently all over an attack that iran denies carrying out. iran's president saying this morning we will not wage war against what he called a group of politicians with little experience iran raising the stakes with its
own pressure, announcing that it's producing so much uranium it will soon reach and possibly breach the limit it's allowed under the nuclear deal >> we are not removing. >> it says it's not yet breaking the deed president trump walked away from, but it's threatening to increase the quantity and quality of the nuclear fuel it makes. >> we are unfortunately not surprised by the iranian announcement. >> reporter: president trump tweeting a single apparent headline, iran to defy uranium stockpile limits secretary of state mike pompeo will meet the u.s. military commander for the middle east today, some shipping companies in the gulf now calling for military escorts the fear of a flashpoint here growing. >> so bill, a thousand troops to the persian gulf what will their mission be what are they going to be doing? do you know? >> reporter: yeah, the pentagon says they will be used for surveillance and intelligence
gathering on iran, and its proxy forces in the middle east and to protect u.s. troops and interests from what it calls credible threats from iran, and they'll be used not just here on the persian gulf but likely in iraq, possibly even in syria so you know, within days we've had a military buildup, attacks on tankers in the middle east a nuclear warning from iran, and it doesn't look like there's any sign of a way out, no talks likely and no climb down likely from either the u.s. or iran >> very tense indeed, thank you very much. meanwhile, all eyes are on florida and the 2020 presidential race. president trump holding his re-election campaign's kickoff rally in orlando tonight, and the crowded democratic field is hitting the trail ahead of their first debate in miami next week. nbc white house correspondent peter alexander is in orlando for us good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you
from here in orlando you can see the lines are already forming to see president trump tonight. he's expected to be joined on stage by the first lady melania trump, also his vice president mike pence, and the president's aides tell us that he has been personally engaged in the planning for this evening's 2020 kickoff rally. on the eve of this event, the president was already looking to rally support among his base vowing mass immigration arrests. >> the 2020 presidential race is on with president trump holding a re-election kickoff rally in orlando and releasing this ad debuting on fox news. >> we love this country. we love donald trump. >> promises made, promises kept. >> reporter: while democratic candidates are sharpening their attacks. >> i'm not spending my time behind closed doors with a bunch of corporate lobbyists, i'm spending my time building a grass roots organization that looks like the rest of america. >> reporter: thousands of die hard trump supporters are expected here tonight.
>> i love it that he's getting things done. >> reporter: almost four years to the day from kicking off his campaign. >> when mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best they're bringing drugs they're bringing crime they're rapists. >> reporter: this time around the president is once again poised to make immigration a central issue tweeting monday night next week i.c.e. will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have elicitly found their way into the united states they will be removed as fast as they've come in. campaign aides say it's part of a larger message along with his touting of his administration's record on jobs and trade a new polling number showing the president behind the top six democratic candidates and the trump campaign purging three of its pollsters after an internal poll of 17 battleground states became public showing the president trailing joe biden in several races. biden in washington vowing to take the fight to some of those key states.
>> first of all, i plan on campaigning this out, and i believe we can win texas and florida if you look at the polling data now it's a marathon. it's a long way off. >> so peter, you mentioned the president's tweet promising mass immigration arrests. what more do we know about those plans, and do we know whether that tweet or the plans themselves are tied to his re-election campaign >> reporter: yeah, craig, it's a good question. the president appears to be referring to a plan that has been in the works for months to round up undocumented migrant parents and children in some form of a nationwide blitz i spoke to immigration officials last night who say normally these types of operations are kept secret so as not to tip anybody off. right before the midterms the president vowed that there would be the end of birthright citizenship. he would get rid of it of course the midterms came and went and nothing happened, so again, this time around it's unclear if this is a scare tactic or an actual plan
>> remains to be seen. peter alexander there for us in orlando. thank you. and a reminder here that the first democratic debate is next wednesday and thursday nights in miami airing here on nbc, msnbc and telemundo. savannah one of the moderators along with lester holt, chuck todd. investigators in dallas are trying to figure out why an army veteran opened fire yesterday on a federal building there, and we're also hearing from the man who took this close-up photo of the suspect just before the gunman was killed in a shootout. nbc's gabe gutierrez has the latest on this good morning. >> what's most incredible is that despite all the shots fire department a-- fired, the gunman was the only person wounded. he left the army in 2017, and investigators are now speaking to his relatives as they try to pin down a motive. >> reporter: the cell phone video is chilling. a masked gunman with an assault
style rifle and body armor opening fire outside a federal office building in dallas monday >> an unknown male, tactical vest with an automatic weapon shooting at the building. >> reporter: this morning authorities trying to find out why. >> we have more than 200 fbi agents and partners aggressivel investigation. >> the fbi identifies him as 22-year-old brian collilyde of dallas who was discharged from the army in 2017. his social media profiles mention right wing conspiracy theories, but it's not clear why he'd want to attack a federal office building. a photographer for the dallas morning news happened to be standing nearby. he snapped this dramatic photo showing the gunman wearing a mask, a tactical vest and a belt carrying more ammunition. >> i just crouched in the corner and tried to make myself as small as possible and just prayed that he didn't walk past me because i'm in plain sight, and if he saw me sitting there with a camera, i have no doubt he would have shot me. >> reporter: as first responders
rushed in, officers from the federal protective service shot back. the gunman kept firing as he ran across the street to a parking lot. then he fell and was later pronounced dead. a bomb squad used a robot to blow up a suspicious item in his car, but authorities say no explosives were found. the shootout happened blocks from an ambush three years ago where five police officers were shot and killed. this time authorities say quick action preveed more deaths. >> these guys are our heroes today, we owe them a debt of gratitude. >> i'm sure investigators are looking into the suspect. the military service record. what do we know this morning? >> well, brian clyde was a private first class. he left two years later. on his facebook page he shared images of ammunition mag sooazi and a sword or a dagger. neighbors of his have said he just moved in a couple of months ago, that he kept to himself.
the gun mman's father declined comment. let's turn now to that severe weather threat facing tense of millions today. severe storms flooding rain expected from the midwest to the mid-atlantic. mr. roker, here we go again. >> unfortunately. this is chagrin falls, ohio. you can see why the falls are named just that. heavy rain, water bursting the banks of the chagrin river causing massive flooding. we've got more on the way. as we go to the radar, you'll see we're looking at 44 million people under a flash flood watch, and we are going to see now it's 46 million stretching all the way into the mid-atlantic. we've also got a risk of severe weather this afternoon into the evening. texas into 5 million people, ten states at risk for tomorrow into the evening hours, for isolated tornados and even as we move into thursday we got a risk in the northeast, four states damaging wind, the tornado threat low, but still there. we watched this system meander its way. it's a stalled front from texas all the way to new jersey,
multiple storms, heavy downpours. wednesday, thursday, right on into friday as this system continues to push to the east. here's what we're looking at today as far as travel problems. kansas city, cincinnati, atlanta, washington, new york city, all those airports will see weather impacts. i-95 from boston to jacksonville, mobile to indianapolis along i-65 and houston to jacksonville on i-10. heavy rain from three to five inches from the midwest into the northeast. thank you. much more to get to this morning, including the latest on jon stewart's fight on behalf of 9/11 first responders. he fired back overnight after senate republican leader mitch mcconnell appeared to shrug off the comedian's call to action. nbc's kristen welker has the back and forth on this. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is a story that has captured the attention of washington and the rest of the country. it was just last week that jon stewart testified on capitol hill making that emotional plea
to congress to permanently pay for the september 11th victims' compensation fund. overnight he appeared on his good friend steven colbert's show to hammer home that point. a war of words that's no laughing matter, escalating between comedian jon stewart ann mitch mcconnell, the two men trading jabs over funding for the september 11th, victims' compensation fund. after publicly shaming congress last week, the former daily show host called out congress by name. >> this has never been dealt with compassionately by senator mcconnell. he has always held out until the last minute. >> mcconnell pushing back arguing many things in congress happen at the last minute. >> we have never failed to address this issue, and we will address it again i don't know why he's all bent out of shape. >> reporter: in response stewart joined his old pal steven colbert last night.
>> i'm not bent out of shape i'm fine i'm bent out of shape for them these are the first heroes and veterans and victims, and they're currently still suffering and dying and in terrible need. you would think that would be enough to get congress's attention, but apparently it's not. >> the feud sparked last week after stewart gave a powerful speech that quickly went viral berating congress members who failed to show up for a subcommittee meeting to reauthorize the fund. >> sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak to no one. >> reporter: mcconnell offering this explanation about why the hearings are often empty. >> well, that frequently happens because members have a lot of things going on at the same time, and it sounds to me like he's looking for some way to take offense. >> stewart snapping back. >> now i feel stupid this is a huge misunderstanding, i didn't know that they were busy. [ laughter ]
i'm -- oh, boy, now i don't even know what to say i'm so sorry i didn't mean to interrupt them with their jobs! >> reporter: later imploring the senate leader. >> so if you want to know why the 9/11 community is bent out of shape over these past, let's call it 18 years, meet with them tomorrow as soon as possible, and don't make them beg for it you could pass this thing as a stand-alone bill tomorrow. meet with them i beg of you >> reporter: now when asked for comment an aide to leader mcconnell highlighted mcconnell's comments that there's no way the senate won't address the funding, but it first has to go through the house where it is expected to pass the fund is currently set to stop taking claims in december of 2020 savannah and craig. >> kristen welker at the white house, thank you, kristen. we turn now to mr. roker once again for a check of the forecast. >> that's right. a look at the rest of the country and show you that we are talking about flood risk in the
east, severe storms firing up in the plains out west we've got gorgeous weather with the exception of the extreme pacific northwest and the coastal regions. heavy rain stretching to florida as well. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds faster mommy, i gotta go to the bathroom. i do too honey, but we're gonna hold it for mommy's discount. easy, easy! but you're in labor? don't mess with my discount! uh hem. get a discount up to 30% with drive safe & save from state farm. good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. we can see the golden gate bridge draped in fog and this will clear out to give us sunshine in san francisco today but it will keep it cool as the marine layer hovers just off the coast. marine layers are slightly

was a gas leak, but the investigation is still ongoing. some terrifying moments on board a flight from kosovo to switzerland. the plane was hit by severe turbulence >> yikes >> that picture tells the story. a cell phone camera capturing the moment the flight attendant slammed into the ceiling of the plane along with the drink cart. several passengers said they were burned by hot water that was thrown from that cart. at least ten people suffered minor injuries they were taken to the hospital after the plane landed in switzerland, and the flight attendant is said to be doing okay. >> surprising there weren't more injuries base ond that video. now to the latest in that growing string of mysterious deaths of american tourists in the dominican republic a new jersey man found unresponsive in his hotel room is now the ninth to die while visiting the caribbean nation. nbc's morgan chesky continues to follow this story for us morgan, good morning. >> reporter: yeah, craig, good morning. the family of joseph allen says

expressed by a lot of folks back here with the sheer number of deaths over the past year and a half, morgan, are u.s. authorities helping in the investigation in any way? >> reporter: yeah, craig, they are. important to note that dominican police have investigations open into each of these cases but the fbi says they're assisting specifically with toxicology exams. when you ask tourism officials in the dr what they say, they're calling these incidents tragic by isolated. >> we'll continue to follow it thank you, morgan. jury selection is underway now in san diego it's the trial of a decorated navy s.e.a.l. who was accused of murdering a wounded prisoner in iraq and also shooting unarmed civilians. nbc's molly hunter is following this case for us molly, good morning. >> reporter: guys, good morning, this is one of the navy's most prominent war crimes trials in years, special operations chief eddie gallagher has served for nearly two decades in 2017 while deployed in iraq, officers in his platoon said he became frightening.
>> navy chief eddy gallagher is getting his day in court. >> we're finally at the point that he's been looking forward to, which is to get into court and actually let somebody judge this evidence. >> reporter: during jury selection for his court martial on monday, gallagher wore his dress white uniform and a chest full of ribbons. he's charged with murdering a wounded islamic state prisoner in mosul iraq in 2017 and with the attempted murder of two civilians shooting a schoolgirl and an elderly man who prosecutors say posed no threat. gallagher has denied all charges and his defense team says hi plans to fight. >> the defense's plan is to annihilate the government's case, to show that these witnesses are lying, to show that these charges should never have been brought, and to show that eddie gallagher is not guilty. >> reporter: prosecutors could present evidence including photos of gallagher posing with a dead body, and according to
the "new york times" sending a leaked navy report a text report the times reports members of his platoon told investigators he had become obsessed with killing. in recent months, the court martial has been thrown into turmoil, first be i the removal of the lead prosecutor for tracking the defense team's e-mails and then by suggestions by president trump he might pardon the defendant. >> when they fight sometimes they get treated very unfairly. >> reporter: in march president trump ordered military officials to move gallagher to a less restrictive confinement. republicans in congress have lobbied for him saying he's an innocent war hero being unfairly prosecuted gallagher's wife andrea leading the charge to free her husband. >> i mean, our children already know the truth, just like i know the truth. just like he knows the truth bad things happen to good people >> one of the biggest issues facing prosecutors is that it took so long for officers from
his unit s.e.a.l. team 7 to report the alleged war crimes that investigators have little physical evidence to go on later today the strongest witnesses are expected to testify right off the bat including the prosecution's star witness navy s.e.a.l. craig miller the navy times reports he's expected to testify that he saw gallagher plunge a knife into the prisoner. >> an interesting case, and a lot of people will be watching it closely thank you very much. mr. roker is back because if it seems like it's raining more around this country, perhaps it's because it is. >> it has been, and we can point to the change in our climate we've seen the increase in heavy rainfall events since 1958, three inches or more, we've seen it especially in the northeast on into the midwest and southeast as well. not so much out west take a look at this. so far this year, 58 cities have seen their top ten wettest years on record since january 1st. for example, vegas, they've had

that's really the question. >> reporter: facebook says it won't manage the new financial system instead it's launching a subsidiary called calibra to do that they will not share account information or financial data with facebook or any third party without customer consent and promising strong protections in place to keep your money and information safe but wait you ask, what about bitcoins >> trading in the crypto currency was temporarily halted as the value of bitcoin fell about 20%. >> reporter: super volatile and popular with cyber crooks, but without regulators, it's been slow to catch on for e-commerce. facebook says the libra will be pegged to real currencies with a regulatory system. still, some cyber security pros are recommending a go slow approach. >> my advice is if you get an offer to start using libra, proceed with caution let other users be the guinea pigs. >> tom i'm going to confess, every time you're talking about crypto currencies, my eyes glaze over i don't really get it.
can you do like a sample transaction? how would you do it? >> reporter: let's say i owe you some money i can take some money, some cash, some dollars out of my bank account i put it into a libra account, and then i can access that libra wallet through facebook on either messenger or whatsapp much like you do if you have apple pay. you just put your thumb on it and click and suddenly the money is transferred same concept the difference is this is a whole new currency, and so you could use that same app, the same currency the world over, and you could also use your phone to scan a bar code, for example, and immediately transfer money onto, for example, the metro or maybe you're going to buy a starbucks or something of that nature. the whole idea is it's not physical cash, not coins it's all on your phone >> but tom, this is also unlike bitcoin, this is backed up by a hard currency, right >> reporter: absolutely. so it's backed up by the euro and the dollar and even the swiss frank. it's pegged to those currencies,
so as opposed to bitcoin which trades wildly, right, it's up dramatically earlier in the year, it was down dramatically this should be because it's pegged to real currencies, it should be more stable. of people >> so why can't we just stick with a zen mmo or zell. >> doesn't my apple pay work well, doesn't my credit card work well? >> yeah. >> that's the issue. for people in countries who don't have access to banks and there are apparently a lot of people who don't have easy access to banks, this would become something that they could use and they wouldn't be paying transaction fees. >> all right tom, thank you do you think this is going to be that moment they play in like 20 years where we're like what is that internet? it's a passing fad >> this is katie and brian 2019. >> it's interesting, though. brave new world. thank you, tom coming up, we are live in north carolina with some new details on the third shark attack there in less than three weeks but first, these messages.

night actor kevin bacon sitting down with our own seth meyers, he just wrapped up his own show, in which he had to grow a mustache for his role. he decided to take the opportunity last night onset's show to shave that mustache off in the interview chair seth also revealed to kevin bacon they might be related. have a look. >> i was on "finding your roots," and one of the things they do is they show you at the very end, someone who is a genetic cousin of yours, and i got you. i'm one degree from kevin bacon. >> isn't that awesome? i heard about that >> yeah. >> and everyone kept saying to me have you met cousin seth? >> look who we have here, cousin seth himself. >> where >> seth meyers >> oh, hey, look who's up early. >> it's not that early for me. hi, everybody, how are you >> good to see you. >> what's up buddy >> have a sit down >> what's up >> good to see you guys, how's it going

the things that's been really popular online, and i know that was a little unexpected. you guys thought it would be the opposite. >> i think when we started doing the show in 2014, the more conventional wisdom was like short things are really good online that's what people want to watch the next day, and so we have just, again, it'just been a delight for us that there's an audience out there who wants to sit down and spend maybe even on their phone watch something that takes 10, 12 minutes. >> you guys don't shy away either. >> a point of view late at night that they're looking for -- >> i don't think we were smart enough to know that going into it, but we didn't quite know the other way to do things, but it has been nice that -- i think this day and age people have a sense for authenticity, and they want to hear what you believe. so ultimately, you know, we say what we think, and it's nice that we have an audience that comes to hear what that is. >> five years in, what's your favorite part of the whole thing? >> i feel like we did a really good job when we hired the people we decided we wanted to do a show with there's nobody i'm bummed out to see. that makes working a lot easier
when you don't have to avoid people in the hallway. you guys work in the building, they're narrow hallways. >> you've got sort of the nicer hallway. >> that's true i've seen your hallway. >> it's a better neighborhood than us. >> happy belated father's day by the way. >> yeah, it was a good one. >> i was going to say in five years, you've become a father twice. >> two times over. >> did you get married in the last five years too? >> i got married right before the show started i wanted to get married before the show started so i didn't have to invite everybody from this show. i had to invite all the snl people >> i'm in the fitness center, i see seth come through, use that as a shortcut sometimes. >> we're right there >> i've seen at the time on the treadmill. i'm not in the gym very often, but i have seen you on the treadmill. >> you all work out together. >> i think probably the right thing to do is let seth have his workout, but instead i'm like hey, hi. >> come on the show. >> he's like taking off his hat. hi yeah >> seth, some shows opted to like kind of shy away from the political commentary on late night. people may not want to see that.

we're back. ♪ we're back, 8:37, and we want to send our condolences this morning to our good friend anderson cooper. he lost his mom gloria vanderbilt yesterday of course we all know her. she was a legendary actress, a painter, a designer and philanthropist, and natalie's been looking back at this incredible story nat good morning. >> good morning to you guys. gloria vanderbilt was born into a family whose name was synonymous with wealth and privilege in new york, and her life while extraordinary was also one filled with hardship and tragedy. >> poor little rich girl. >> fame, beauty, and incredible wealth, gloria vanderbilt had all those things, but what she
wanted most according to her son anderson cooper was the love and stability she never had as a child. >> here's the first movie of little gloria herself. >> born in 1924, vanderbilt was heiress to the vast railroad and shipping fortune built by her great, great grandfather while still a baby, she lost her father and was largely abandoned by her mother. at 10, vanderbilt was at the center of a custody battle between her mother and paternal aunt newspapers breathlessly covered every moment of what was then called the trial of the century, and dubbed her the poor little rich girl. but that girl would grow up to be an accomplished woman who wrote, painted, acted, and built a hugely successful fashion empire in the late '70s and early '80s putting her name on the designer jean backsides of millions of women. ♪ >> she married for the first time at 17 to a mob affiliated hollywood agent whom she said physically abused her.
four years later she left him for 65-year-old conductor leopold stakowski, a marriage that resulted in the birth of two sons but ended in bitter divorce. >> i think to be in love is the secret of everything that's -- if i know anything in life, that's what it is. >> gloria vanderbilt married twice more to director sydney lumet and writer wyatt cooper, a love that gave her two more sons, a period she called the happiest in her life she also dated ere roll flynn, frank sinatra and howard hughes. her most devastating loss witnessing the suicide of her son carter in 1988 speaking to her youngest son anderson in the hbo documentary nothing left unsaid. >> all i did was cry, and i haven't cried since. it's like there's not a tear left. >> however, tragedy would not define her eulogizing his mother for cnn, anderson spoke movingly of her
resilience and capacity for love. >> the last few weeks every time i kissed her good-bye i'd say i love you, mom. she would look at me and say i love you, too. you know that. i knew it from the moment i was born, and i'll know it for the rest of my life, and in the end what greater gift can a mother give to her son. >> in her final hours surrounded by anderson and her loved ones, there was this touching moment shared. >> i never knew that we had the exact same giggle. it makes me giggle every time i watch it [ laughter ] >> a moment no doubt that he certainly will never forget, and vanderbilt was the queen of reinvention choosing to make her own way and become her own woman and savannah, as women of a certain age, i'm guess you and i both had the gloria vanderbilt jeans in our closet. >> we did, and i knew that name, but then when you learn more about her and what she has gone through her whole life, and then of course we do know anderson a little bit and see her
extraordinary son, which is a great life accomplishment, natalie. >> absolutely. great legacy to her. >> yes. >> thank you very much >> thank you just ahead here on a tuesday morning, a reverend and a rabbi who share an unusual bond. our conversation with them about a test of faith they never could have imagined and what it taught them both about forgiveness. but first this is "today" on nbc. as a family, we always fly emirates. mum and dad are always saying... i love the breakfasts... it's the lunch for me... we both like the snacks... and the comfy seats... granny always says... the crew are so lovely with... can i get you anything madam? my uncle loves emirates for... the thousands of channels... plus i never miss a live match... and my sister, if she ever spoke to me... would say...
welcome back welcome back, it was four years ago this week yesterday, in fact, that a gunman opened fire at a historically black church in charleston, south carolina, and just eight months ago another shooter stormed into a pittsburgh synagogue killing 11 people. >> the two crimes while not connected will forever link the leaders of those houses of worsh worship. i sit down with eric manning and rabbi jeffrey myers to talk about their bond and what they call the ministry of presence.
>> tell me about this ministry of presence. what is it >> a ministry of presence is just being there in support and solidarity, letting people know that they're not alone. >> reverend eric manning took over as pastor of emanuel ame church in charleston a year after the tshooting that left nine dead. >> i was looking for someone to kind of talk to, just to share with, just who could possibly understand what it means to lead a congregation. >> so when a gunman targeted tree of life synagogue in pittsburgh last october leaving 11 dead, reverend manning did not hesitate. >> something was just saying to me you need to be there, remember how you were, remember the questions you had. >> within days, reverend manning was at rabbi jeffrey myers side. >> his support and counsel in
the days and weeks after the attack on tree of life, what did that mean? >> to know i could speak to someone who's been there, who understands it intimately, that's the best person to speak to when it comes to any sort of shared incidents, so it continues to be for me a place to go for a source of guidance, inspiration. >> how's charleston? >> there's more than 500 members so to speak on the roll of mother emmanuel, and i can honestly say every member is in a different space. i've learned how to give people the time to validate that whatever space they're in it's okay >> for us in pittsburgh, we're writing one. we hope it gets dusty and never gets used but we all know too well this is going to happen
again somewhere, and if our experiences can help whoever the next community is. >> what makes you so confident it's going to happen again >> we're not done seeing massacres in houses of worship i just know that one day again it's going to happen i'm hopeful it's not in my lifetime, but if it is, i will be there. >> how has all of this changed both of your perspectives on forgiveness? >> in the ministry of forgiveness, we're able to release that dominion or that power that the person may have over us and say i'm not going to allow you to control the rest of my life. i'm not going to have animosity towards you. i'm releasing it. >> from our point of view as a jewish community, you have to seek it from those who you have wronged. the hard part is you can't get forgiveness from people you've killed they can't give it god is always open to giving forgiveness. you have to seek it, even on one's death bed you can see
forgiveness from god for the sins that you've committed over a lifetime, and god will forgive. >> one of the things that strikes me about this story and about this friendship formed out of tragedy is you've got two men from different faiths, from different backgrounds. i cannot help but thinking this is precisely the opposite outcome of what both of the gunmen would have wanted. >> there are always unintended consequences in a case like this between both perpetrators, what they haven't caught is that it strengthened communities in ways that they could have not anticipated whatever that percent of people who have evil in thought and deed, that part of the skill can't outweigh the remaining part of society that are basically just really good, decent people, and in the end evil will not win. it will scar us, but it will never win.
rabbi together over the weekend, at the charleston forum that was founded after the shooting to help promote understanding you spent some time with the rabbi. >> in the days after the shooting it's good to see him again the ministry of presence is so powerful, and they're an example of it. sometimes there are just no words, but to just sit next to someone and be with them and abide with them. that's the ministry of presence and they're really demonstrating it >> four years later, how the charleston community is still grip grappling with the memories and the shootings is something a lot of us are still dpocovering. >> reverend manning said mother emmanuel has become sort of a tourist attraction in a lot of ways passers by stop in sometimes on sundays and stop in and take pictures during worship service, and he said that that has actually made it more difficult for some of the families to heal >> yeah. >> well stop and stay a while,
