i'm one on one with mark shriver. father's day is just around the corner. we want to celebrate father's day early by an incredible man who really shaped this country. i don't even know what to say about sergeant shriver. so many things. peace corps. ambassador to france, co- founder of special olympics and of course his son has just written a book. it's called "a good man." and i would disagree with you. sergeant shriver was not a good man. sergeant shriver was a great man but i would like to welcome mark here. thank you for being my guest. he was my graduation speaker at columbia university.
that was an honor and a delight. look at this picture of you and your father on the cover. lieu so cute. >> thank you. >> your brother says it must be him, right? >> my brother said it was him. >> to write a book, why was this so important to you. >> i heard a lot -- from a lot of folks after he died he was a good man. some said he was a great man. but what i really thought was interesting is what made him good. i think it was his marriage to the woman of his dreams for 56 years, my mom. the fact he had five kids, all of them loved him. he had a daily relationship with god, countless friends. i think that is the key at what made him good. he achieved incredible balance in his life, kept everything in perspective. i hope the book has some messages in there that will help all of us be better human beings. my wife and gene are raising three young kids. we're struggling with aging parents. i know a lot of my friends are dealing with this too. i hope the book gives those lessons out to folks as they
struggle like i'm doing on balancing it. >> my question to you would be how difficult was it for you to grow up in this family where your father was an icon? didn't it put pressure on you? >> there was a little bit of pressure. the family, kennedys and shrivers have been involved in presidential campaigns from 1976 to 1980 and in '84 as well. there's a fair amount of pressure but the great thing about dad is he never talked about the pressure to go into politics or to do great things. he only wanted us to be happy in what we were doing, to pursue whatever we do with a lot of vigor and a lot of energy. but he was a father grounded in his faith. he was grounded in his relationship with his wife and his kids and he never cared about how we made him look. even when we embarrassed him as i did when i dropped out of the peace corps after publicly announcing i was going to join it, he only cared about me. i think that's one of the secrets in the book is to not care about what your kids are
doing but only to give them unconditional love, to not worry if they embarrass you but to give them unconditional love. >> what other secrets will we find in this book that the public doesn't know about your father? >> i think it's the fact his life is built on three principles. it's faith, hope and love and those became reality as a father and grandfather and all through his work, whether for racial justice in the '50s, chicago, the creation of the peace corps. all of these efforts, special olympics, all of these were efforts to spread home and love. he gave such great advice, even when he was struggling in alzheimer's if it is last ten years of his life. when he was yelling at my kids to do better in athletics, he turned to me and said, did i yell at you when you were a kid? and is ared he didn't. -- and i realized he didn't. >> he certainly is going to be remembered for a long time and your book tells a lot of stories about this good man,
park which is the team's full- time training facility. the team is expected to officially announce details of their new summer training camp later today. i'm not very happy about that. it was kind of cloudy in our area to see the transit of venus last night. i hope you saw it because the next one is going to be in 2117. but this is video of the event captured by sky 9. venus' trip across the sun takes six hours in order to complete. and only people in locations like australia and hawaii were able to witness the entire event. >> it happened about 6:10 is when it started here yesterday and sunset is at 8:30. only two and a half hours of sunlight to see it. >> did you see any of it? >> i tried to see it. it was a little cloudy. but pretty cool and great videos. i posted a great video from
nasa. has music from some of the satellites in space that saw it. this was really just a very tremendous event. again, won't be seeing another one till 2117. all the allergens are low. that's good news for you. for the afternoon you may just see a spotty shower or thundershower pop up but the clouds here and there. some sunshine. looking at the day planner, temperatures still very comfortable. we'll be climbing into the low to mid-70s over the next few hours. maybe about 75 or so for the high with a mix of sun and clouds and that spotty shower or thunderstorm. winds not bad either. south 5 to 10. i hope you take advantage of the coolness we've been having because when i show you the seven-day forecast, by the time we get to the weekend and early next week, it's going to feel every bit like late june, early july. by 9:00 64 degrees. if you have outdoor plans, they'll probably be okay but you may get a brief interruption. notice the disturbance moving east but locally we're starting to see some showers fire up. we see them across virginia,
west of town. in southern maryland, we've been seeing a couple of showers pop here in charms and st. mary's counties. let's take you over to those areas. we'll take you south in and around leonardtown, just south of leonardtown we're seeing a shower down there. we know we've got some scattered showers toward mechanicsville and east of stafford. this stuff is not moving much but looks like it wants to drift slowly to the east. farther to the west we'll take you out toward luray now. we have a few showers out that way. just some really light scattered stuff south of olney and far northern prince william county. looks like a few showers popping between a man sas and -- between man fan sas and woodbridge -- manassas and woodbridge. temps are in check right now. very nice. 72 here in town. we've got 68 for frederick and leesburg. frederick and gaithersburg were down to a 46 for a low. easton 72. with the clouds and showers around pax river only 56 right now. manassas at 70.
you can see these puffy clouds cluttering up the sky a bit in tysons corner. humidity 38% so the air is dry, winds are calm. light showers. some of this will evaporate before it reaches the ground. there's the disturbance coming across this morning. the future cast shows we're going to see the spotty showers from this stuff for the afternoon. it will die down after sunset. then tomorrow likely a better chance for some scat erltd showers and storms across the region before we dry out -- scattered showers and storms across the region before we dry up and heat up. tonight 50s. tomorrow upper 70s. a yellow alert sort of day. some of these afternoon thunderstorms could delay your commute. they might also get you a delay or a cancellation of a sporting event tomorrow. 79 degrees. we turn good on friday, 81. then your weekend is going to be a hot one, mid-80s saturday. low 90s on sunday. we'll northbound the kitchen when 9news now at noon returns. don't go anywhere. we'll be right back.
