Question special

Lt. Colonel Hueman, you talked about the heightened sense of connection and humanity when we face shared danger and tragedy. Indeed, we see people coming together when natural disaster hits or tragic killing shakes a community. But this unity does not usually last too long. How is someone like yourself, faced with such inhumanity as war and cancer taking lives indiscriminately, embraces hope and shares a message of unity and optimism? Does this stem from a family legacy of service, or is each of us equipped with this ability?
