San Bernardino Tries to Cope after Tragedy

Hosted by

Yesterday's mass shooting has focused attention on the city of San Bernardino and its struggle with urban decay. The identity of the killers has also cast an unwelcome light on the Muslim community in the Inland Empire. Sayed Farook was the American born son of immigrant Pakistanis. His wife, Tafsheen Malik was a recent immigrant from Pakistan by way of Saudi Arabia. We hear more about the city's struggle in the face of economic and social upheaval and the faith that sustains it.
