It’s a sad and somber start to the week as the families of the 11 people killed in Saturday’s synagogue rampage in Pittsburgh prepare to bury the dead and continue to ease the pain of those hurt in the carnage.

We’ll explore the deep divisions that are threatening the very fiber of our republic with documentarian Alexandra Pelosi.
