Doesn't seem fair sometimes, that, once a person learns to love, learns the meaning of love, learn what he really loves in this world, then life is kind of snatched away from under you.
Once you've achieved that, well, maybe it's time up.
I don't know.
And I want to let you all know that I love y'all deeply, very deeply.
I hope when you guys look back on your life, you're able to find some good times.
When you look back on your childhood, you're able to see that there was love there.
Your love, you know, it's always been there.
Hopefully you'll be able to say that about your old dad.
He gave you some good times, I hope.
(static) (birds chirping) (somber music) - Only in hindsight do I realize how rocked I was when my father died.
A lot of things that had made sense that I was chasing and running after as the things I was aspiring to be in the world, they didn't have as much meaning.
I had gone to Africa for the first time and I saw the beauty of the world and the tragedy of war.
Reporting live and direct from Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa.
- UN voted Canada the number one place to live in the world right now, and Sierra Leone is the last.
- I started really seeing and feeling the world.
(pensive music continues) Then it came to a very clear understanding that if it wasn't good for people and my father wouldn't be proud of it, then I could no longer be a part of projects that didn't check those two boxes.
And that undid a lot of things that I'd been doing in my life.
And it became a guiding principle for me moving forward.
I wanted a family, I wanted kids.
You know, I had a friend in Germany, and he casually mentioned to me, he said, "Yo, you see my friend, Ina, while you're in town."
He wasn't there.
And sure enough, I ended up at this bar and, and this waitress was at the bar, and she was cool, I started talking to her.
It turned out that this was the Ina that my friend Tyron had told me about.
I think about you guys.
I would imagine what it would like to be, be a father.
I would imagine you.
- Mother, father.
- We made you.
Fa- I know.
And I turned out pretty great.
