We often ask where do we get such men. Then one comes along that adds so many layers to that question. Brashear broke boundaries that were, in their time, likely considered un-breakable. That he did it and clearly retained his sense of humanity – he wasn’t worn down to a shell of a man by the effort – says more than enough about him.
It is a wise thing, you have done. You have focused us on a courageous man. This is truly a man to emulate. Thank you.
