7:03 am
david, good morning. >> good morning, the damage is just widespread across southeastern louisiana. two storm deaths already reported, and getting word a louisiana man is missing after being attacked in flood water by an alligator that ripped the man's arm off. the man slifd in slidell in a raised home inside a wildlife refuge in and around the marsh area. water had come in, storm surge from hurricane, knee deep flood water. he went down to the shed, wife heard commotion, looked down, saw the alligator attacking her husband. and the man's body is missing. we start with an aerial view, thanks to the coast guard at the area known as grand isle. this is what hurricane ida did to the coastal community of grand isle, louisiana. shredding rooftops and
7:04 am
scattering debris everywhere. on monday coast guard aircraft circled the island looking for survivors as first responders across louisiana did the same thing, reaching those still trapped in the hurricane's aftermath. >> we're still in a search and rescue mode. we're not recovering yet. we're still responding and trying to save lives. >> reporter: in laplace, louisiana, rescue crews went door to door searching for families stranded by the floodwater. some took refuge on the second floor or in their attics. >> the ceiling in every room caved in, and it was unbelievable. four feet of water just came rushing in. >> reporter: storm surge swallowed this neighborhood in plaquemines parish after the nearby levee failed. there was cell phone video that captured the evacuation efforts at a louisiana hospital on monday. an ambulance prepared to transfer about 100 patients from a damaged facility. you can see the inside of one of the transfer vehicles here. there were people stacked three

7:06 am
but i couldn't. things are falling apart. i ain't got a dry spot in the house. right now, i got nothing. >> hurricane ida was the first big test of the levee system around new orleans. millions was spent to build up the levee system. this was the first big test and it passed. but now you had an epic failure of power grid with city of new orleans and other places without power. you heard the governor warn folks, this will be a marathon, not a sprint in terms of getting the lights back on. >> david begnaud with the grim pictures out of louisiana this morning. david, thank you very much. let's stay in louisiana to mireya villarreal in hard hit, houma.
7:07 am
national guard troops are helping with search and rescue and crews are working to clear the roads. what are the people there telling you? >> we may not have mireya. >> so here's what's going on here, this is what people are telling us, it doesn't matter what part of houma you live in, everything looks the same. this used to be a grocery store. the roof has come down. the windows shattered. there is debris everywhere. the destruction all looks the same here, right? but the one thing we can tell you is that people are trying to pick up the pieces. there is a curfew in place that starts at sunset, and it ends at sunrise. that's to keep people off the roadways. it's also to keep businesses like this safe from potential looters. all over houma, louisiana, this morning, residents picking up the pieces of hurricane ida. frank marshal has lived in his trailer for 21 years. >> it's good to have family. we'll make it, though. i know somebody will be there to

7:09 am
how is that possible? >> power of god, this right here, too. this. >> reporter: eymard grew up near houma and says ida is no match for his love of louisiana. >> there are more storms that are going to come eventually. at what point do you decide i can't live here anymore? >> never. you want to see america and humanity, look at this place. >> reporter: here's the thing, everybody is in the same boat here. to give you an idea of what it takes to actually get this report on, for example, there is no electricity here. there is no power, right? no cell service here, no running so just to get this report on, one satellite phone, so we are definitely going old school just to bring you what is happening here in these communities, but
7:10 am
the good news is is that when we were leaving our hotel this morning that has no power, no light, or no running water, we did see dozens of utility trucks that were parked at the civic center. these guys are telling us as soon as the sunrises they are heading out, and they're going to start working on some of those power lines to try and get people back up and running as soon as possible. vlad. >> and get them that much needed relief. for more on the path of the storm, we're joined by cbs news meteorologist and climate specialist jeff berardelli. good morning. >> the wind is winding down, but the bad news the rain threat is winding up. take a look at the flash flood watches. go all the way from the gulf coast straight to cape cod, 80 million americans covered under that. the heaviest rain right now is located across the southeast where the storm core is up to around nashville. this is heading quickly to the northeast. as it moves northeast tomorrow, watch out for a tornado threat from washington, d.c., south and north of that is extremely heavy rain straight through tuesday afternoon.
7:11 am
excessive rainfall outlooks in the -- especially in the appalachians today and then the middle atlantic and northeast tomorrow. as much as eight inches-plus of rain. we have a serious flash flood threat likely as we head into tomorrow and thursday. >> gayle. >> all right, jeff, your weather map looks a little quieter today. that's good. thank you, sir. this picture of the commanding general, the legendary 82nd airborne division will go down in history. he was the last american to leave afghanistan's main airport yesterday ending the u.s. military mission that began after 9/11. this morning the taliban control that airport and the fate of dozens of american citizens still in afghanistan is uncertain. charlie d'agata is in qatar, the new home of the u.s. embassy that was forced to evacuate. >> reporter: good morning, well, this is the u.s. air base where the last mass evacuation flights landed, also some of the last american troops to arrive late last night pretty much leaving at the stroke of midnight in kabul handing the country back to an enemy they spent 20 years fighting.
7:12 am
defensive flares lit up the sky as some of the last american c-17s flew out of kabul for good. moments later, the nighttime fireworks display came from tracer fire as celebratory taliban gunfire rang out across the capital. the last american soldier to leave, major general christopher donahue. by morning light, the taliban made clear the country was under new management, strolling through the airport, posing with some of the disabled military equipment left behind. the flights have stopped stranding an unknown number of afghans who wanted to flee taliban rule. some of those lucky enough to escape wound up here at the udeid air base in doha. in two weeks hangars were transformed into holding areas for 55,000 afghan refugees. >> it doesn't matter what country you go to.
7:13 am
>> yes. >> you just need to go. >> yes. >> america's longest war came to an end with a chaotic calamitous mass evacuation and a suicide bombing from isis-k that cost the lives of 13 u.s. service members and 170 afghan citizens. remaining americans and afghans holding special visas will either have to pack buses for the border, wait for the airport to reopen, or hunker down. they have little more left now than hope the taliban made good on their promise they won't be prevented from leaving and hope that america still holds any influence over an enemy it was unable to defeat. >> a new chapter of america's engagement with afghanistan has begun. the military mission is over. a new diplomatic mission has begun.
7:14 am
>> reporter: physically, that diplomatic mission now moves here. the u.s. embassy will be operating out of doha, qatar. it is a major regional u.s. ally and has also served as a go-between with the taliban, a role that is only going to become more important in the future. for "cbs this morning," charlie d'agata, doha, qatar. questions remain and president biden plans to address the nation later today to talk about the end of the u.s. military mission in afghanistan, but the state department is now leading the effort to evacuate remaining americans, afghan allies, and foreign nationals who may still be trying to get out of afghanistan. weijia jiang is at the white house with that part of the story. weijia, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, tony, and good morning to everybody. this complete withdrawal is a campaign promise fulfilled for president biden, but tony, you are right. he faces questions about leaving some americans behind after he previously said that troops
7:15 am
would stay in afghanistan if americans still wanted to get out. now, he did say in a statement yesterday that he would address his decision not to extend the u.s. military presence beyond today. secretary of state antony blinken said the number of americans who want to evacuate is under 200, likely closer to 100. the administration has vowed to bring them all home. some republicans, though, are sharply criticizing the exit. representative liz cheney said you don't secure america by leaving americans behind enemy lines, betraying our allies and empowering our enemies. this isn't ending a war. it's losing one. president biden said the taliban has made commitments on safe passage at the airport and the world will hold them accountable. we will be listening for a plan for how he plans to ensure that when he delivers remarks this afternoon because he has also repeatedly said he does not trust the taliban. gayle. >> that seems to be the

7:17 am
mel smothers played his violin to pass the time, and sara ellis had little time to hit the road. >> have to leave most of our belongings behind and just take the important stuff. >> reporter: the town's main the fire reaching tahoe would be potentially catastrophic on par with the destruction seen in the town of paradise in 2018. tahoe exists in a very high fire hazard severity zone, meaning it is especially vulnerable to wildfires. officials say the drought coupled with climate change are changing the very vocabulary of california's wildfires. >> historically we've used the terms such as anomaly, unprecedented or extreme. these terms are no longer appropriate.
7:18 am
>> reporter: and one reason south lake tahoe is so vulnerable to fires is because just a few blocks from the glitz and glamour of the casinos here at state line are these tiny little neighborhoods that have older homes and log cabins that would just go up like a match stick if this fire does reach town. also, the u.s. forestry service has closed all u.s. forests in california because of the high fire danger. back to you. >> all right, anne, thank you very much. ahead, elizabeth holmes goes on trial, how the silicon valley entrepreneur once called the next steve jobs plans to defend herself against charges she

7:48 am
united states could mean new restrictions on americans traveling to europe. the european union just removed the united states from its safe list of countries that recommends restricting all non-essential travel from the u.s., but it's up to each country to set its own policy. there may be fewer restrictions for americans who are fully vaccinated. the u.s. still has not reopened to european tours including people from britain, which of course is no longer part of the eu. there's a lot of confusion around this. if you're fully vaccinated, nothing should change. each country, though, will set its own rules, restrictions. if you're not vaccinated, it's still unclear what that could potentially mean. it could mean a combination -- >> it doesn't sound like they don't want you to come. that's pretty clear. do not come here. >> that's the thing, the american passport is a powerful document. it opens up all of these countries and now to be told that, actually, nah, we don't need you. >> if you get vaccinted then you can take that trip that you always wanted. >> if you read the fine print
7:49 am
hopefully, yeah. >> exactly right. five states that have banned or limited mask requirements for students have been told they may be violating civil rights laws. the department of education sent letters to state superintendents in iowa, oklahoma, south carolina, tennessee, and utah. federal officials say policies against mask mandates could violate the rights of children who have disabilities or underlying health conditions that increase their risk from covid-19. the biden administration has vowed to take action against states that tried to block mask mandates. it's very interesting. >> yeah, that's a different conversation when you're talking about students with disabilities. i'm just looking at the general conversation between parents getting heated on both sides about wearing a mask. i saw a very angry mother the other day saying they're making my child wear a medical device. we're talking about a piece of cloth. a cloth that could save your child's life and save others lives. including your own. i don't understand the heat. >> the argumenting of course is

you have an immunocompromised child. >> even if you're a parent who doesn't believe in any of that and you think it's bad for your kid. it's not a huge thing. it's just a cloth thing. it's like wearing socks. >> exactly. they're young, they just put it on. >> i mean socks on your feet. >> shirts and shoes required, throw a mask on too. it's not that arduous. >> right, right. >> okay, we have some highlights from the opening day of u.s. open tennis. i know, gayle, defending women's champ, naomi osaka came on strong in her return to grand slam tennis. she grabbed eight of the last nine games. coco gauff had a bit of a rough start. she dropped her first step to peland, but the 17-year-old bounced back to advance to the second round. we like that. more than 53,000 fans showed up for day one of the tournament after they were banned last year due to the pandemic. they were greeted with long lines.

there is a new danger looming as the country struggles to get the coronavirus under control. america's seven-day average has hit nearly 130,000 new covid cases and over the last week, we averaged more than 100,000 in the hospital. in the hospital. nearly all of those people unvaccinated. now, health experts are warning of a potential double pandemic. a twin-demic during flu season as kids go back to school, especially in areas without mask mandates. medical contributor joins us now with more on this. good morning to you. simple question. how should we prepare for the so-called twindemic? >> we hope it doesn't happen but in the average year 30 to 60,000 deaths from influenza or the flu.
8:14 am
300 to 600,000 hospitalizations and 10 to 15 million dollctor's vizzish. you couple that with covid-19 and it can strain the system. we don't know what happens when you get both. is it a double whamy? so, we're afraid. last year pretty wimpy flu season and mainly because of the precautions for covid-19, which also prevent the flu. we're getting worried. >> is it safe to get a flu shot and covid shot in the same time period? >> yeah. well, i guess i shtd say the real answer is we don't necessarily know. studies are ongoing now, getting the flu shot together with the covid-19 vaccine. they're probably safe. i would suggest, to probably separate them from a week or two, if you can. if logistically, it's too hard, you're probably okay.
8:15 am
you're worried about the side effects of both of them, creating the combination and we don't know the answer. so, i'd rather people separate if they could >> you scared me when tony said is it safe to get them both and you went eh, yeah. which is something we should all take into account. when should we get the flu shot? >> i have to realize that i am speaking to gayle king at the moment about a shot in the arm. i have to be a little cautious here. >> you know, i was very resistant to the flu shot, but i got it, i got it, and you don't have to tell me twice about the covid. you don't have to tell me twice about that covid vaccine. i can't wait to get a booster. >> we all need the flu shot this year, and it should be probably toward the end of september. the flu shot lasts about six months of immunity. and flu season is normally kind of october to potentially may. so if we can delay it and get it the end of september, beginning of october, i think that's the
8:16 am
optimal timing, even though they're available now. >> dr. agus, are people talking about a combo flu/covid shot? >> yeah, it's in development, and probably will be around for next season if it's needed. you know, a flu shot and the covid, and we'll see if it's safe. because obviously one injection instead of two is a lot easier on everybody. we do it in children. we combine vaccines together and they work together. we're waiting to see what the data are with these two vaccines. >> the cdc -- i was going to ask you this question. the cdc is advising against giving people who are not immunocompromised, so they have a strong immune system, against giving them a booster shot. do you agree with that? >> no. even today you still have the world health organization come back, and before they had said you have to give vaccines to the whole world before you give a booster, and now they said we realize a booster shot is saving lives and protecting vulnerable people, so we need to give
8:17 am
booster shots to the united states to give immunity to a level to protect from the variants. what we're seeing is slight decreases in immunity every month after you're vaccinated, so the further you are out, the more decrease in immunity. i think we're all going to get booster shots to really give us four to tenfold increase in immunity and protect us from the delta variant and any new ones that are coming. >> it's so tough to know what to do when the cdc says something and doctors on the other side say something else. >> i agree, the messaging is off. it's confusing to me. >> go to your local convenience store, make it a combo, get your shot and pick up a bag of chips while you're there. dr. agus, thank you very much. ahead, our series "the work shift" will visit a company where every day is take your child to workday. nightmare or dream? we'll talk about it. stay with us. >> a dream.

this week in our special series the work shift, we're looking at how our lives at work have changed during the pandemic. with so many students learning remotely last year, the burden of child care fell mostly on mothers. 80% of americans who left the labor force last year were women. now there's a renewed focus on child care as many people get ready to head back to the office. adriana diaz who is about to become a new mom, shows us how one e-commerce company in virginia with a creative solution. >> at the offices of latched momma, a maternity and nursing clothes company. >> you're so helpful. >> reporter: it's byob, bring your own baby. >> floor snacks are a thing. >> is that okay? >> absolutely. >> reporter: here moms multitask as their babies lap it up through naps, in the warehouse, and just about everywhere. >> she's an independent worker. >> she is. she thinks that she's getting stuff done. she's got her own little station, and there she goes. >> i have to say, we've been
8:21 am
sitting here for a while, and it's been very quiet. >> yeah. >> i thought i'd be hearing the babies more. >> when you keep mothers and babies close that first year, you don't hear a lot of it. >> reporter: melissa wirt, once a stay-at-home mom built this multimillion dollars brand that way, bringing in four of her children to work when she was young, something she plans to do again. >> you're pregnant? >> absolutely. >> and this is your number? >> six. >> number six. i don't know if we would have six kids if it wasn't for latch momma and the flexibility. >> reporter: the flexibility to bring your child to work while their babies are toddlers. a work benefit she implemented in 2016. >> the amount of people that told me that it was a horrible idea when we started to allow babies in the workplace, like horrible. and i looked at all of them, and i shrugged my shoulders and i said we're going to try and see what happens. >> reporter: what happened is her company was a success, growing an average of 86% each year with 25 of her employees coming to work with babies in tow. >> the moms that do bring their
8:22 am
babies to work, there's a different sense of work ethic. it's not going to work everywhere. we're not as efficient with the babies here. >> so you can tell that? >> absolutely. but i think when women get to be mothers first, you're going to get those hours back. so let's say somebody brings their child to work and it's just not going well, normally they have the flexibility to say, time-out. i'm going to head home. and i'm 100% sure that baby is going to get put to bed that night and i'm going to have an email from them catching up on that day's work. >> are you concerned about safety and liability? >> there's a waiver that's signed, there's liability insurance. but truly it comes down to trusting your employees. >> reporter: like warehouse manager, amanda oberlies who works alongside her 18-month-old griffin. >> he's a part of the team. >> does it feel that way? >> it does feel that way. is he our best employee? no, no he is not. >> reporter: she's grateful she doesn't have to leave them. >> a lot of working moms talk about guilt, do you think being
8:23 am
able to bring your kid to work might reduce that at all? >> it definitely reduces a lot of my guilt. i still feel a little bit of the guilt because he doesn't get 100% of my attention. mom guilt's everywhere. >> software development firm til tilde, both allowed babies up to 6 months old. this spring almost a quarter of women business owners said that the lack of reliable child care made it harder to hire. according to a survey by payroll provider gusto, so nearly 3/4 of those employers adopted family friendly policies like work from home. >> we have to acknowledge the fact that things change after a baby's born. a woman changes. you're reborn. i hate to tell you, you're going to be a completely different person on the other side. it's so scary, we don't talk about it. >> reporter: she hopes the work world after covid can invest more in supporting new mothers.
8:24 am
>> we can't see women as weaker on the other side of childbirth or less capable. we need to see them as more capable. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," adriana diaz, midlothian, virginia. >> i notthat would wke i have to say, i really wouldn't, all the little kids running around. you see it and it clearly is working. it reminds me before you have a baby when you get on a plane and the baby's screaming, and you're like ah, after you have your own baby it doesn't bother you. you're like, i understand. it's okay. >> the relief from the mom guilt and by the way, dad guilt is a thing too. being able to bring your work life and your personal life together is a wonderful thing and relief. >> i wonder how many notes adriana took. >> cut to adriana having six children of her own just like that last momma. >> you heard us. tomorrow in our series the work shift, how losing a job during the pandemic was a bitter shock for many americans. jobless people tell us why they're still unemployed and

8:32 am
every day of the week. we're still going to be covering the top news stories of the day, but we're going to give them the time and care that they deserve, and we're a weekday show so it's going to be faster paced. all three shows, you've got cbs mornings, that will be us. cbs saturday morning, and cbs sunday morning, you know them very, very well, are committed to being the place where we hope that you will want to start your mornings. we have the pictures vlad because yesterday we were there for rehearsals. i think the rehearsals we want well. >> i was in louisiana but i was bummed to miss it. >> you get to go today. >> i know, and the rest of the week. >> nate was there yesterday. i think you're going to get a feel, it's a different feel. what we like is what we do, original story telling, original reporting, exquisite story telling, i think that's a better way to say it. we're going to be on times square right across from our friends. i called robin the other day, we're going to be waving, hi robin, hi george, hi michael. >> she just said grr. >> no, they're happy. i'm not going to say they're
8:33 am
happy. >> right. >> we're going to be going there. very exciting. >> nate and i walked over with a cake and a fruit basket the other day. >> did you? >> to gma? >> yeah, we did. i don't know why, but security said no. >> when you walked in, they had our pictures and they said do not allow entry when you see these people coming in. >> it's a big deal for us. it's a new move and i'm excited. >> i'm super excited. >> i don't think it's a revolution. it's an evolution. we've been doing stories for sunday morning for a long time. i came here for sunday morning. i called cbs and said can i go work there. you know, when i wrote my book, i was a guest on sunday morning. i've been familiar with that story telling for a long time. but here's the interesting thing, i came with three ideas for sunday morning, ended up only doing one of them for sunday morning. the other two i did for this show. so the dna has already been similar. >> you know what i think? i think this, guys, i think there's only one sunday morning and there's only one of us, but what i think is that it will be a good marriage between all of the platforms that we all do i
8:34 am
think very, very well. >> including the hard news, which is the dna and the legacy of cbs news as an organization. i mean, we were just in haiti. the kind of reporting that is the legacy of this organization is going to continue. >> and we're going to have fun, too, i promise. >> there's going to be urgency in the 7:00, optimism in the 8:00 and if this doesn't work out, my talk of the table is whiskey. >> can i just say this, see a different side of nate burleson. i learned some things yesterday, did you know he's been writing poetry since he was 7? >> i did not know that. >> can we share some? >> did you know that tony dokoupil was a hair model? >> i knew that. that i knew. that is available on the internet. >> tony mentioned that, nate has a lot of fun with that. so we're going to learn some things. >> former hair model, he is still like always modeling that quaff. >> there was one particular year where i filed my tax returns and hair modeling was a source of income. that year is long in the past,
8:35 am
however. >> all right, we're talking about whiskey. >> i am talking about whiskey, i could talk about nate all day, though. it was great hanging out with him yesterday and i'm excited to show people what we got in a week's time. my talk of the table really truly is about whiskey and a very interesting experiment, it's a deal with an irish whiskey distiller and another distiller in colorado. colorado and ireland have extremely different climates and what makes the whiskey special in ireland is that wet climate. colorado has a high dry climate, and so the experiment is to share the recipe from ireland and then five years from now see how that whiskey grown in colorado is different or not. so the presumption is that the climate shapes the flavor of the whiskey, and now we're going to find out with identical recipes. we only have to wait five years. >> okay. >> looking forward to that.
8:36 am
>> we're patient people. >> my talk of the table is an update on a musical prodigy we introduced to you last year in what to watch. remember 11-year-old nandi bushell from the uk. she drummed her way to online fame, and she even challenged and ultimately beat dave grohl of the foo fighters in a virtual drum battle. the two have become good friends. he even wrote a song about her, gaim. >> gayle. >> i remember. >> last week dave and nandi finally met in person in style. check it out. ♪ >> so that is nandi rocking with the foo fighters as they perform ever long. she absolutely killed it. it is one of the hardest songs to drum in rock and roll. here's what she told me. >> i enjoyed every second being in the usa, and i can't wait to come back here again. thank you so much dave, and
8:37 am
thank you so much kayla and thank you so much foo fighters and thank you to everyone who has organized this incredible experience i'll never forget. >> wow. >> and she says she can't wait for her next u.s. trip. i can't wait, nandi, to buy tickets to your show when you come to the garden with your band. i'm looking forward to that. >> i can't wait for the two of you to meet face-to-face. >> i know, i was texting with her dad, i know, i'm so excited for her. this is so cool, and dave, lenny kravitz, they're all impressed and loving nandi too. >> we're all loving nandi. bravo. >> coming up next, grammy nominated rapper logic will join us to talk about his new memoir, which looks at his very difficult childhood and his rise to fame. we'll find

he's written a "new york times" best selling novel, been very busy. last summer after the birth of his son, he announced that he was retiring from rap at the age of 30. now bobby hall is the author of a new memoir called "this bright future" about his very challenging upbringing and rise to fame. it is published by simon & schuster, which is a division of viacom cbs. ♪ i work hard, i work hard every day ♪ >> for rapper logic, music is his therapy. his lyrics tackle important issues like racism and personal experiences with mental health. ♪ my mind's a mess living in a world of stress ♪ >> in his new memoir he writes he was like an orphan with parents. his mother struggled with mental illness and alcoholism, and his absent father also battled addiction. he says this in the audio book. >> the thing that gets me is that it didn't have to be as bad as it was. i mean, part of the reason that
8:43 am
we were as poor as we were is because my mother's illness came with a deep streak of stubbornness and pride. she used to say i'm so proud i won't ask anybody to ask the salt. so she wouldn't ask for help, even when she needed it. >> reporter: rap was an escape from his reality. ♪ i feel like a king ♪ >> the underground artist began releasing his music online and with the help of social media, he built a huge fan base, which he calls the rat pack. but as his music became more mainstream, some fans turned on him. after performing on the mtv video music awards in 2017, he writes, it was a tsunami of hate, and i couldn't turn it off. social media helped make logic and nearly broke him. ♪ i did it, i made it, i'm loved ♪ ♪ and i'm hated ♪ >> last year he announced his retirement from rap to focus on

fatherhood. ♪ talking about you got to get home and feed your son ♪ >> but retirement didn't last long. after about a year, logic is back with new music. ♪ >> boy, he's really good. bobby hall, aka logic joins us now. good morning to you bobby hall whose real name is sir robert bryson hall ii. nice to see you, bobby hall. >> nice to see you too, thank you so much for having me. that was like really cool, actually, seeing that made me feel good about myself, thank you. >> i was wondering how that would make you feel. listen, you were so candid. you really told the unvarnished truth about your childhood. you said it's been a beautiful and difficult journey to relive. it was so hard for me to see the beauty and the difficulty of your life. why was it such an important story for you to tell at this particular time? >> i think it's just kind of all culminated to right now, and
8:45 am
everything that i've gone through has kind of been leading up to this moment as a father. you know, the music and accolades and all the stuff behind me is great, but nothing wa beats being a good husband and dad, and i feel like now that i'm really venturing into this next part of my life that part of just being logic is kind of not necessarily over, but i really wanted to finally tell that story. >> i am curious about how you were able to be a good husband and father because on page 194, talking about your mom, this really got to me. the crazy thing looking back, you said, is after 17 years of her abuse, she hadn't broken me. she had broken my brother. she had broken my sisters, but she hadn't broken me. i was damaged. to this day i don't know why i came through it with a sense of self still intact. i don't know why i haven't been shattered, that i haven't flipped out and killed her, why this woman could have totally driven me insane.
8:46 am
how do you get through something like that, bobby, and then say but yet at the end of the day, i thank my mother and i thank my father too? >> well, first and foremost, they did shape me, you know, and any of the negative things that i went through as a child, i understand that these people are sick. they have addictions. they have, you know, mental illness problems and for me i kind of started to recognize that young, which also it did shape me to be able to look in the mirror, to have conversations with myself, to even express myself and heal through writing lyrics as well. >> bobby, sir bobby as you were christened. when you write a book like this, there's a moment when the publisher sends it back to you. it's been copy edited, you look at it one last time and then it goes to print. when you did that and you saw your life laid out in this way, all that work you had done, where do you sit with it now? how do you feel looking back at all you've been through?
8:47 am
>> i definitely -- it makes me feel proud, you know, that the drugs and violence and crazy things in my life that i didn't turn to that, you know, a lot of people in my own family turned to that, and nobody's perfect. we all make mistakes. i'm not saying i'm like, you know, this or that, but i'm very lucky that i looked at these things in front of me and just chose not to go down that path. i don't know, it's just a weird thing, and sometimes, i mean, i think it's god, common sense, a combination of it all, the universe, but luckily i am here. i don't know how, but kind of recounting all of that is very cathartic in many ways, and it was an incredible experience full of healing and reflection. >> yeah. and then you end the book in the acknowledgment section with a note to your son. i love you, i will always be there for you. i will never leave you. i will give you my word. i will give you the life that i
8:48 am
never had. how did fatherhood change you? >> well, the biggest thing, honestly, is i look at my little boy and i'm just like i don't know how anybody could have done the things that i went through to me, like to a child. that's kind of crazy to me. >> yes. >> but once again, i'm so happy that i went through what i did because it truly shaped me as a man, you know, so i hope that i can be, you know, am setting a good example for my boy. yeah, that's what it's like. after you become a dad, it's crazy. >> you certainly learned what you didn't want to do as a father, and you seem to be taking a different path with l.b. as you call him, little bobby. we have less than a minute. i want people to know that you've come out of retirement at the age of 30. good. what made you decide to come back to your music? >> you know, i woke up one day and just realized that i just want to do it for me. before it was kind of for the likes and social media and x, y,
8:49 am
z, and all these other things. i realized i don't have to do that. i can just strum a guitar and sing or rap or this or write or work on film like i am now, and just have fun. it doesn't have to be this sayonara thing, i do what i want. i don't when i don't. >> i love the title of the book "the bright future." it does seem your future is very bright. >> it's a fantastic and brave piece of work. it's a very difficult book to write and you pulled it off beautifully. >> thank you, i appreciate you guys. >> our best to your family. >> thank you. >> "this bright future" will be out next tuesday, september 7th, wherever you like to buy your books. we'll be is your family ready for an emergency? you can prepare by mapping out two ways to escape your home, creating a supply kit, and including your whole family in practice drills. for help creating an emergency plan, visit
