Can Service Solve America’s Biggest National Security Threat?
Do you support increased national service?
For many Americans, trust in American Institutions and with one-another is at an all time low. This lack of trust is one of our nation’s most pressing national security crises. Bishop Garrison and Mary Beth Bruggeman of Thrive Global believe that universal national service is critical to the future and security of our country.
Studies have shown that service can increase empathy as well as build teamwork skills and foster a sense of community. By serving side-by-side in the military, civilian corps, or in public works projects, Americans may be able to start rebuilding trust in each other and in our nation.
Do you think we can rebuild faith in our institutions and each other through increased national service? Why or why not? How would you like to see our nation focus on service?
