He thought a moment and then said “As cadets we are trained to conduct ourselves in high stress situations and under extreme stresses. But we, as cadets, never really know if the training has been truly absorbed until we have to use it. For many, that opportunity never arises.

Kreed looked at her and blinked both sets of eyelids. “I’m not entirely sure what you mean. I am still me, as I was. I do not see why I would or should change simply because I came close to dying. Everyone does, at some point. And if I were to have done so in that situation, at least my death would have not been in vain.” He paused for a moment and then added “Death is only a loss if the person never had the opportunity to fulfill themselves.”

It was important for her to pull herself out of her own personal definitions of any given concept and form an understanding on how Kreed saw these different areas. “Is that a personal belief, or is it a more common one that is culturally based? I’d like to form a framework for how you are experiencing different things so that we’re evaluating it all from the right lens.”
