Leadership is “about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together” (QE II). It’s about respect. It’s about inclusion.

The blessing is life, being able to share the lessons you learned with others & serve a great country. There’s no doubt in my mind, this enemy sits inside you & lurks. He’s a tough sonofabitch, but you have to face the enemy inside. You. Have. To. Thanks for sharing
