The station provides an unparalleled way to address the challenges of moving humanity toward the moon and mars. Which is what we wanna do while. Increasing knowledge of engineering physical sciences biology planet and the universe and the twenty years that humans of lived on the station we built our understanding of how we can safely live in microgravity and work there and say it stay there longer and longer and we've made some pretty groundbreaking discoveries. Today i get the opportunity to out with my friends and colleagues who i worked with for many years in the space station program down at the johnson space center about those discoveries and their experiences with the science and technology activities happening on the station over the past years. Mary beth kurt engender then in two thousand one. There's always been humans in space. It's for my entire career.

"He sat down and told me the whole story. Okay what's the story well. He was a freshman in college And he and his roommates thought it would be fun to see if they could get the sort of the statue and he said since i was the biggest and strongest the group he said i was kind of elected to go up and do it which he did and it was welded on i. I asked him what tool hughes and he just smiled and said brute strength he. I was a big strong guy and when he pulled it off he pulled with such force that when the sword came free he went flying backwards off of the statue. Which is you know. Five feet off the ground and landed on the ground and the store proceeded to go through his shirt and into the ground just missing his abdomen. He's i don't know would've survived. Had he been stabbed and into the ground with such force that he could not get it out. His friends had to pull it out. Wow and so what does he do with it after that well. They went back to their apartment. Went to sleep. Woke up the next morning and realized what they had done realized it was facing public property and the process story got bent so they knew they damaged it so they didn't know what to do. You know they were scared college freshman. So they didn't do anything they just held onto it and then eventually the sword went back home with him to his parents house where it stayed for the next almost forty years. Why did he decided he had to return it now. Well he was a veteran also and he said it really started nagging on on his conscience that here. He was a decorated veteran and he knew that he had done this. Terrible thing to desecrate the statue of another decorated veteran and when he was cleaning out his parents basement and then last year he discovered this sort and Thought is this. I need to do the right thing. So who was william shepherd. The person is the statue was for. Yes you generally. I'm shepard He was a very well known man and westfield farmer but he served valiantly in the french and indian war and then in the revolutionary war and he was a friend and confidant of general washington. But he's best known for his role in shays rebellion which. I'm not sure in canada if you know what that is. But that was the biggest threat to our young country at the time it was after the revolutionary war band of poor farmers took over the armory. Which is in springfield. Which is where the country's arms of the time we're being stored and washington realize that this this could be devastating to the new country so he sent in general shepherd to put down the rebellion which he did. Okay what does he represent for for people in your city. Well he's he's on arts city seal. He's on the flag. He's on all of the city trucks. Even the garbage truck. There are apartment buildings named after him and it was his descendants who actually had the statue made so it was erected in one thousand nine hundred nine it was built in nineteen eighteen and then erected nineteen thousand nine hundred and it's been there ever since now. Sword part of it said it had been restored and replaced that sort of that was stolen. So what happens to the one that's been recovered because it was damaged And because the new sort the replacement sort has been welded in so securely it will not be put back on the statue but it is now in the museum in our town. Am and will you describe as museum exhibit. This had been missing for forty years after it was stolen. Yes yes the archivist is typing that up now to put in with the sword and do you think that this exhibit will inspire others to maybe return things that they might have in their basements. That's exactly what we're hoping for Yes it never occurred to us to press charges or anything. We're just so delighted to have this back and that we are very much hoping that other people will be inspired to give you know whether it's things they have illegally or whether they just things that found inadequate we are hoping that people will call and they have actually have received several calls. Already of people say you know. I found this in my attic. You would you be of any interest in. The answer's is always yes. Always we will take anything that is of historic nature And so and then for him his lesson is he wanted people to realize that you know it's never too late to right a wrong and something that you do and your youth that might have been impulsive Can eat it you your whole life. He's it but you can do the right thing and and change it all right. Lots of lessons to be learned here. Cindy thank you thank you.

"Support was. At the moment. It's really more. The right. Wing goners races as possible. But than it's got, it's almost like totalitarian. Boo back again. Isn't it? Really? Is when you see really tests shoe in stuff like that, that is totally turned to me. Right right in. So again, that's where I think You know it really begins with people you know. I I I'm reading a book right now. Any it's by former professional football player miles McPherson the books called the third option and he he just about looking at each person as a human being made in the image of God and if I look at you as made in the image of God then then politics you know we can put that aside doesn't mean that we don't want to have good policy and make good decisions, but we really need to treat each person with civility respect and when we begin there then we can have a framework for really good conversation so that that I've really been benefiting from that book. Yeah now. The thing is. I'm amazed anyway we move onto books now he's going to be quiet. Very days interesting topic questions, various topics. You've written twenty books as well. And topic very deep for me to really soak it delve into a you know as I say when I saw you. Approach me for the show so you. This book The the president. One. I'm. Really. Touched me well. Yeah. This guy's really So deepen. His stuff into historical. What's going on really The historical side of racial injustice and things like that. How how did to get into this work? In terms of. Its that's a great question because every I'm. My brother-in-law cannon I have told people this story. This story plays out in America like he pointed out in the in the in the late eighteen hundreds and then in Europe and then in Africa. And it it plays out on these three continents. During one of the most incredible periods in human history was the industrial revolution. Great Scramble for. Traffic and. That's the time when the book goes into that period near describing. And then later on when when shepherd comes back from the Congo and bans Lamerica, what's been instituted in the early nineteen hundreds or the Jim Crow laws in America so it really begs the question. Okay. Between Europe stealing most of Africa and and many tribes in Africa one thing that the book points out is we talk a lot about the Arab slave trade in how house right? Labor was going on. In Africa, even though it had been abolished in England in small in America but then. With the Jim Crow Laws and. It really begs the question any in lake you're pointing out You know when we look at today's politics, it asks the question which which it is the most savage and so that's where when you down into the human relationship of William Shepherd and Sanyal Lapsley, you see this this white man in African, American developing this deep interational. Friendship were they're bonded by hardship and? That's The store it really comes down to what does it mean to love a brother Okay. Yeah Yeah Yeah That's that's amazing Um that bonding. Sell to get my teeth into to more of that. You sent me the copy, the the the e copy, and the we want this Lexi. It takes me a while to to read for is not severe dyslexia that. I'll send you the print copy you must. Yeah okay. Can we can get the audio light? You can play on audio the text. Takes speech but. One thing nice is a it's actually a historical fiction which means that is based on a true story but you've actually it's a bit like saying, I'm going to tell a true story. I want to change the name change our so it looks like A. A. Fiction and not the real people exposed and tell us about. That right yeah. That's an in a number of people. Ask me a question. It's it's a good question because what we're doing we're taking Williams shepherds story over the course about thirty years in again plays out on three continents with all these different players he's up against King Leopold to of Belgium. So you've got this big cast of characters and other Guy Edmund Morale in in London who formed the Congo Reform Association so In my research, there were definite parts of the story where I could followed the factual story line. But for example, in wave shepherds, personal memoirs, he talks a lot about his stories in his adventures in Africa, but he doesn't give much insight into his emotional wife, his heart, what he's what is he thinking? What's would he would see feeling and so in that case I really had to develop some fictional elements to bring. You know life in heart to the characters. Because you can read the history but I didn't WanNa right just a book that was just a history book. Real. Characters with question blow I think it goes well to the that of of it being. A ten part series as well. So you can get the characters in character with. Kind of fiction is thing in but based on the true story site people that really makes interesting actually. Yeah Right. Right. In a good way to think about it as as other people have noted before it is is that when you when you see the historical fiction novels or say safe, you're GonNa Watch the at a movie about Sake Steve Jobs. The other historical character will it's Kinda like at an impressionistic painting, you know you can look at that impressionistic paintings, make out shapes and colors, but but the the colors get mixed in different ways and that's what. You've got book your facts in your with. The other things when they make these movies, they based on a true story and then they can make traumatized and change it wherever wherever they want because they can move away from the Chew Story to certain point is based on true story and it gets you thinking I wonder what the real true story was not WanNa. Be WanNA. BE WANNA so. I would say it makes good screening screenplay for the for the NAP blockbusters as well, and I say absolutely the and that's what's amazing about shepherds. Life story is that he's got so many factual things that are true about him their absolute head scratchers because I'm here in America, he's he's a virtually unknown African American hero of human rights would eat had so many I I mean he he actually had a tea with, Queen Victoria who happened to be King Leopold's cousin in he had teeth. Because he was first african-american for slack men inducted into the Royal Geographic Society in London. So it's Story placed heavy in London as well. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I haven't dug motifs into the book too much to see what happens. Of course you snippets for for our audience to. Theresa Okay intrigued and look into into the CAN. Maybe get to find out more about your. Screenplay. So what challenges did Shepherd encountered gain to African? Will first off he. He was a young man when he graduated from Hampton University in Virginia and when he's admitted his application to become a missionary, it took him three years to be approved even though the Presbyterian Church twenty, five years earlier had stated that they wanted to send missionaries to Africa. So he he faced inherent racism within his own church community. But when he was finally partnered with Samuel? Lapsley, and the to went together as they journey a thousand miles up the Congo River they're facing, of course wild animals. Pythons they said were as numerous as rats in London at the time. You mean. Yes. Exactly. This to. Scare anyone but. Wife and London. They battled what was called sleeping sickness, which was a real deadly disease, the adult that lever. Again most volt, they they did battle accountable cannibalistic tribes but his shepherd biggest battle was against King Leopold to of Belgium who had enslaved the entire Congo for the ivory and the rubber tree because remember it's it's it's the the industrial revolution. So there's bicycle tires car tires know a worldwide demand for rubber in the Congo's filled with rubber. So Sheppard and Lapsley had battle mercenaries and and Leopold's enslavement of the whole nation. and. That leads to the the the first international human rights trial. Roy. Okay Okay. What challenges and obstacles did he pays when he arrived in.

So indulge me please Afro American. Is A hundred action? It is difficult. It's extremely difficult to achieve clarity when the very condition of your being is time to a basic contradiction because we have been in this place, America because unknown millions of us have been born and have lived and have died here over the course of path three and a half centuries, we have made an identity between ourselves an America yet it remains the same nation that sponsored the rate of Africa that is now and always been hostile to our presence here the same that has exploded our labor and our minds and our culture, our nation that only a brief altri moments as relented. In base attack on our very survival yet, we still yield to such terms and names as Negro Americans American negroes African Americans, lack. Americans etc. a concept of Home and roots in America is the problem. People can only bring a nation out of mutual commitment. To their common good air we have simply victims are concept must be a world concept and we must see ourselves our roots as Africa. To that point? One of the things that was so. Difficult for me to understand having served my country. At the son of a father who served twenty three years in the Marine Corps as a brother. To another brother who served honorably in the United States army and as airborne soldier who taught me what it took to to be so that I could enter the army and excel and receive some of the highest medals. This country has to offer at times of peace when I serve. And then the take that, and then become a federal agent with three separate federal agencies without a college degree.

But only then to be very I packed as we did and the here each of your stories and here you relate. With the pain and the trauma and the hurt it suffered and realized.

"As your fellow justices follow you back through the rowdy crowd begin to doubt your own words. The confrontation on the steps of the courthouse was the first armed action of the Movement. That would come to be known as Shays rebellion among the men who converged on North Hampton. That August morning were Daniel. Shays and another farmer and veteran continental army officer Luke Day both became prominent leaders of the growing revolt. That fall the was led by many though it ultimately. Borsch as name alone Shays was not the most charismatic nor the most eager of the rebels but followers respected his calm and confident demeanor. The rebel insurgents call themselves regulators drawing their name from the North and South Carolina Colonists. Who banded together to oppose British taxes and corruption in the late seventeen sixties. The idea was to regulate the Massachusetts government by attacking the court system. Most of the regulators owned small farms or worked as labourers or country artisans. All but a handful were white. Since nearly the entire black population of New England live on the coast. No women took direct part in the actions and they were religiously uniform adding solidarity to the Group along with tight knit neighborhood and family bonds. Many rebels rose up alongside their relatives and neighbors traveling to taverns across western Massachusetts recruiting followers and drawing plans. They wore sprigs of evergreen in their hats. Reclaiming symbol used by the continental army while the rebel leaders were veterans of the revolutionary war majority of the regulators hadn't served at all it was indeed eastern Massachusetts that contributed the most to the Patriot cause and they would fiercely defend the state they had fought to create the armed protests. North Hampton outraged governor. Bowdoin a few days later he issued a statement condemning the rebels as treasonous warning the state citizens about the imminent danger of anarchy.

Eight hundred radicals closed down the great Barrington courthouse and free debtors from prison. Discontent gave way to direct action beyond Massachusetts to in late September. Two hundred men surrounded the New Hampshire State House where they held the governor and the Assembly hostage for five hours. By shutting down these courthouses the regulators hope to put an end to debt suits two thirds of them had suffered the shame of being hauled into court for their debts but he was more than that for many. The courthouses stood as symbols of a state government. That was enriching Boston. Elites at their expense had a fall convention held Organiz opposition to the Massachusetts legislature. An angry farmer called for an end to court sessions until something was done about rural suffering complaining about endless taxes and the injustice is seeing his cattle soul for less than their value. He urged his neighbors to take action. Saying I have lost a great deal and I think it is time for us to rise and put a stop to it and have no more courts nor sheriff's nor collectors nor lawyers at the end of September the town springfield the largest western. Massachusetts was preparing for a session of the Supreme Judicial Court which handled criminal cases just a few days earlier. The court had handed down eleven indictments against regulators who had participated in the court shutdowns. The county sheriff was a man named General William Shepherd.

"Another thing that helps develop courage is getting real. And so this term realism is one way to look at this realistic training. So we had the sang in the seal team's train like you fight. How does think about how you can do that in your organization or in your life? How do you train like you'd fight? Right. What is it that you're uniquely qualified or good at how can you train? It do more more more of it. You can say you can consider training to be practising or just doing more of you know, for me. It's more writing more podcasting more speaking engagements more communication with my team. Those types of things the things that I need to get good at. So that's one way to look at his realism, as you know, train like fight more you bleed in peace unless you bleed more get real. Piece of realism is take off the is in part and just look at real get real. What does it mean to be real? And I think real and authentic are on our synonymous. So real to me means, you know, if you want courage and you want to mobilize team for courageous action. You have to be real, right? You have to be, you know, honest about your strengths and weaknesses yet. To be honest about your fear. Right. Everybody experiences. Fear, though, a lot of fears of false evidence appearing real or a false expectation that appears real, you know, so we have to get real with what's real fear and what's fake fear. And we have to get when it is real fair. We have to get real about that. And be like, yeah. I've I'm scared. Guess what? That's okay because that's human. But it doesn't paralyze you and you use the tools like we teach on Beal mind to control that fear the big four skills and move toward the courageous action. One step at a time. So getting real being real a real person heartfelt core ridge, the age of courage. You know, that helps us consider the warrior ethos of one day one lifetime. You know, if today's the possibility if today's possibly your last day, the new gonna get real real quick and to be fair for all of us. It could be I'm not suggesting will be. I'm just saying what a great mindset to wake up every day is if it's your last you can bet that's Olson's mindset when he was walking in to Mogadishu in nineteen ninety three. Now, I've had ample time in my life to fail with courage, practice, courage. I won't go into those stories here. But I do want to tell you about a company that I think in a bunch of individuals, I think are very courageous in. That's the team SpaceX. And I'm excited to be heading up. The SpaceX in may to address the engineers who are sending up their first manned space flight and super meaningful to me because I had a brief moment in my life. Where I was intrigued by the astronaut program, and I have met navy seal commander William shepherd who was in astronaut on ABC's astronaut, we've now have three while Bill is retired. But there's Cassidy, and then there's another young seal who went out to medical school in now is in the space force NASA. But anyway. Rate. So I thought for about nine months I investigated going into from the seals into applying for the program. And I talk about this in my next book. It's something that, you know, ended up just being the wrong target for me at that point my life. I waited too long. I wasn't prepared for it academically. So at any rate didn't end my interest in space in science and in future ISM it with it. And I've been following. You know, Yvonne muss in his entrepreneurial ventures for while hard to miss him. You know in the past couple years because he's all over the news. But but it's very interesting guy. And courageous courageous individuals entrepreneur, you know, he's funded SpaceX, you know, in the beginning with all of his own capital. And they've taken they've got other investors who are equally creative who believed in the vision. You know, here's an individual one of few civilians who literally had the vision to. Go head to head against, you know, the governments of the world to create a private commercial company that can send human beings into space, and then eventually to colonize Mars, and he's doing it. And you know, this company has really applied special operations mindset to their work fail forward fast..
