  1. What you said about diversity not being our strength is on point! Our strength comes from our shared values and mission focus and with this in mind, diversity becomes a force multiplier.

  2. You two keep talking about mission mission mission, but I applaud the services for more inclusive policies and programs designed to educate ignorant people like yourselves. Diversity is our strength, but in order for it to work, people have to learn tolerance. If we can learn to appreciate our differences, we will be an even more effective fighting force. That is the mission!
