Nant'an Message of Unity

(The following are excerpts from the full letter issued May 1, 2020. That letter can be read in full here)

If you have been in the gloom with us for more than 6-8 weeks, no doubt you recognize that for us, physical fitness is just the first step to “Get Right” on our individual paths toward becoming Virtuous Leaders. Our journey is also toward becoming (a) gracious leader full of character and integrity, so virtuous that he is capable of significant positive community impact and ultimately able to leave a legacy for generations to come.  As part of that journey we seek obstacles to overcome, we push ourselves to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and we challenge ourselves everyday to be better men.  We fail, we fall, we stand back up and we push forward. 

These are frustrating, complicated times. None of us know for sure the extent of this pandemic’s impact on our safety, and that challenges us emotionally where we are the most vulnerable.  Further, when in that moment of vulnerability we are faced with concern for the well being and safety of our families, we are hardwired to call on our protective instincts that leave little room for empathy, understanding and grace.
With that, I will implore all of you (to) remember that every man...every single man, with whom you share the gloom, is facing the same challenges from this pandemic as you. Realize, while he may not have the same opinions or beliefs about its impact, like you, he too is doing what he believes is best for himself, his family and his community.  And most importantly know and believe, he is more like you than he is different. 

Understand WE are simply being challenged emotionally and if WE dig deep to find the empathy, understanding and grace in OUR hearts, WE TOGETHER will overcome this obstacle just as we do together in the gloom! DoA said “...remember you’re a little wrong and he’s a little right.” But I say, more importantly than that, no matter what, WE ARE ALWAYS STRONGER TOGETHER!


Why do we call it G2? Cause that's what F3 calls Information. Read on for this months Information!
