This is a difficult six minutes, but it's a beautiful piece of documentary work...

From the director:

In 1999 Stevie Lee Fugate took his own life. His death was unexpected and devastating to his family. But rather than give in to despair, Stevie’s father chose to channel his grief into action. Over the past ten years Steve Fugate Sr. has walked almost 25,000 miles, and did it all with a sign over his head saying, simply, "Love Life." His mission is to teach his love for life to every person he meets, so that no other parent will lose a child to suicide.
