  • Welcome back to CNN 10. Where ever you`re watching we appreciate your taking 10 minutes

  • to get updated on news and

  • features from around the word. I`m Carl Azuz. First report takes us to the U.S. Capitol.

  • Republicans and Democrats there say it won`t be the same

  • without U.S. Senator John McCain. The Republican who represented the state of Arizona passed

  • away Saturday at the age of 81. He`d been battling an

  • aggressive form of brain cancer for more than a year and that was many fights he took on

  • in his lifetime. John McCain was a survivor of plane

  • crashes, plural. One of them came in 1967 while he was serving as a decorated Navy bomber

  • pilot during the Vietnam War.

  • He became a prisoner of that war suffering injuries under North Vietnamese captivity

  • that lasted the rest of his life but he did survive. And McCain

  • eventually turned to politics serving in the U.S. House of Representatives starting in

  • 1983 and the Senate three years later. He campaigned twice for

  • the U.S. Presidency but lost the Republican nomination to George W. Bush in the year 2000.

  • He won his party`s nomination in the 2008 race but lost the

  • presidency to Barak Obama. Throughout all of it, Senator McCain defined himself as a

  • maverick. Someone who could take an independent stand from

  • the mainstream. He publicly spoke out against various policies from both Democratic and

  • Republican Administrations, including those of President

  • Obama and President Trump.

  • But he had the respect of politicians from both sides of the aisle. McCain will lie in

  • state at the U.S. Capitol this week. It`s an honor reserved

  • for military officers and government officials. It means his casket will be on display at

  • the rotunda of the capitol where the public can pay their

  • final respects to the late Senator. His impact on Washington extended well beyond the Senators

  • he worked with.

  • How are you?

  • The very last time I interviewed Senator John McCain he was blunt.

  • But Jake, you know, every life has to end one way of another.

  • It was the kind of straight talk that characterized the Arizona Senator`s career. I first met

  • him aboard his campaign bus, "The Straight

  • Talk Express" in 1999.

  • He was an underdog Republican Presidential candidate. A bonafide war hero and a sitting

  • U.S. Senator, when I was just a young campaign

  • reporter. But I got to spend a lot of time with him and I learned a lot about his contempt

  • for the phoniness of politics, about how to handle

  • adversity and about the importance of honoring veterans.

  • Thank you. I salute you.

  • I got to ride on "The Straight Talk Express" again when he ran in 2008. Do you have the

  • fire in the belly for one last - - like you did last

  • time?

  • We didn`t have it last time?

  • McCain described the politician-reporter relationship as adversarial and as I`ve learned that`s

  • not a bad thing. What matters is

  • how it`s conducted.

  • By all means let us argue. Our differences are not petty. They often involve cherished

  • beliefs and represent our best judgment about what

  • is right for our country and humanity.

  • McCain fought fiercely, knowing the disagreements did not necessarily mean disrespect.

  • It was a good fight. And we should be very proud.

  • He also knew that loses, even of presidential proportions were no reason for remorse.

  • I won`t spend the moment of the future regretting what might have been. This campaign was and

  • will remain the great honor of my life.

  • Serving with honor. That`s something the third generation Naval Officer knew quite well.

  • I never lived a day in good times or bad that I didn`t thank God for the privilege of serving

  • the United States of America.

  • His time in service included being shot down over Vietnam and held as a prisoner of war

  • for five and a half years where he was tortured.

  • I was on a flight over the city of Hanoi.

  • As a son of an Admiral he was offered early release but he refused so longer held men

  • could return home before him. Years later he was still

  • gracious and he often joked he was invincible.

  • I survived many near death experiences and so I think that I`m really the most fortunate

  • person that I`ve ever known or heard of.

  • McCain seemed happy with the life he led because it was a life of service.

  • There is nothing more ennobling than serving a cause greater than ones self.

  • In tough times on the campaign trail he liked to share a favorite quote.

  • I was reminded of words of Chairman Mao who once said, "It`s always darkest before it`s

  • totally black.", but anyway.

  • But in his final days, Senator John McCain seems as a light with passion and purpose

  • as ever. He spurred his fellow Senators to remember

  • their mission to the public.

  • We are getting nothing done my friends. We`re getting nothing done.

  • Nearly two decades after I wrote my first story on the maverick, John McCain, my final

  • question for him in an interview was the most

  • difficult to ask. And oddly it was perhaps the easiest for him to answer. But how do

  • you want the American people to remember you?

  • He served his country and not always right. Made a lot of mistakes. Made a lot of errors.

  • But served his country and I hope we

  • could add honorably.

  • Police in Jacksonville, Florida are investigating a shooting that happened at a video game tournament

  • Sunday. It took place in a

  • restaurant at the Jacksonville Landing, an open air market place along the St. John`s

  • River. At a qualifying event for the Madden `19 NFL Tournament

  • at least one suspect apparently opened fire. Preliminary reports said last night that at

  • least 11 people were injured and that four people were

  • killed.

  • The Jacksonville Sheriff`s Office said that one suspected shooter was also dead and there

  • were no quote "outstanding suspects" as of yesterday

  • afternoon. Police were asking any witnesses who might have gotten video of the event to

  • share it with them. Details about the shooting were still

  • coming in as we produced this show. CNN.com will have the latest information.

  • 10 Second Trivia. In what sport would you find the terms green room, impact phone and

  • washing machine? Caving, parasailing, surfing or cliff

  • diving. The green room is the inside of a curling wave. The impact zone is where waves

  • are breaking and a washing machine is when a surfer is

  • tossed underwater by a wave.

  • The MIX Academy is a program at New Song Church in Santa Ana, California. It offers dinner

  • on Wednesday nights to people from all walks of life,

  • followed by classes in everything from baking and fitness to robotics and English. One of

  • its most famous events involves surfing lessons from a

  • professional coach. It`s said to be available to the people most need a smile.

  • So this bear walks into a hotel. Sounds like a start of a joke. This wasn`t a joke. It`s

  • a black bear that somehow sauntered into a

  • Rocky Mountain hotel. The good news is, it didn`t cause any problems for the hotel`s

  • 300 guests. In fact, it didn`t really do any damage either.

  • Just rearranged some furniture and eventually headed back outside. The front desk supervisor

  • said, when you have a hotel next to a National Park

  • wildlife is part of the gig. So he kind of dismissed it as just (inaudible) sign of the

  • times. But will the "unbearable" guest respect the

  • hotel`s reviews, will some folks pan the place, will it just add to the hotel`s "kodiakolaides".

  • It`s certainly a "polarizing" patron that could

  • cause some folks to "bearate" security. I`m Carl Azuz for CNN 10.
