In our complex world, courage is seen as one of the most esteemed values, because it is the one that protects the others. But a critical element of courage is empathic integrity, and the resolve to dig deeper while keeping an open heart and mind.

Peter Jennings understood this. He was a man of thought and courage. He was a man of objective and engaged conscience. He knew how to live, to love and to laugh and he shared this gift with many. In his quest to diligently, honourably and objectively pose and answer tough questions, Peter reminded us we are all part of one global family.

We can take heart in knowing that he lived a meaningful life, and that the world is a better place for his efforts. We can also take heart in the knowledge that he created a family and a team of remarkably capable people who will sustain and build on his legacy.

But I take heart in knowing that Peter Jennings was a global citizen, a great person, and a teacher. As individuals, what we can emulate and share his values and spirit. Apart from energy, integrity, humility, diligence and optimism, he demonstrated one other trait; - that underdogs can triumph. We can say the same about Pope John Paul, or Winston Churchill, or Theodore Roosevelt, or Frederick Banting, Terry Fox, or Lance Armstrong. These people epitomize class and demonstrate astonishing courage. They remind us of what's best and present and possible inside each of us, and all of us.

Peter Jennings understood this, championed this, and celebrated this. Though his life was cut short, he personified, courage, humility, integrity, leadership, and optimism. And his spirit lives on in millions and millions of people. Let's celebrate his life by supporting our local underdogs. They're out there ... and they're in each of us too.

Thank you Peter, and rest in peace. May God bless you and the values and people you cared about – the underdogs - all of them and everywhere.
