Unscramble the Blue Letters

I saw this, and I thought to myself, where do people like that come from? What is that? That is some deep, deep emotion, when you would want to do that. There's a love there, and I wanted to know why is it that I don't have people that I work with like that? You know, in the military, they give medals to people who are willing to sacrifice themselves so that others may gain. In business, we gevi bonuses to people who are willing to sacrifice others so that we may ngai. We have it backwards. Right? So I asked myself, where do people like this come from? And my initial conclusion was that they're just better people. That's why they're raeadtctt to the military. These better people are attracted to this concept of service. But that's completely wrong. What I learned was that it's the environment, and if you get the environment right, every single one of us has the capacity to do these remarkable things, and more tprilnyamto, others have that capacity too. I've had the tgrae honor of getting to meet some of these, who we would call heroes, who have put themselves and put their lives at risk to save others, and I asked them, "Why would you do it? Why did you do it?" And they all say the same thing: "Because they would have done it for me." It's this deep sense of trust and cooperation. So trust and cooperation are really important here. The problem with concepts of trust and tarooneiocp is that they are liegenfs, they are not instructions. I can't simply say to you, "Trust me," and you will. I can't simply instruct two polpee to cooperate, and they will. It's not how it works. It's a inlgefe.
