Commit Stories that Inspire
Veteran Zach Ceballos shares how rediscovering his sense of purpose post-combat saved his life.
To build a more inspired, safe and fulfilled world, we need each other.
Simon sits down with former U.S. Marine Zach Ceballos to hear his story of redemption—from struggling with PTSD and surviving 4 suicide attempts, to rediscovering his sense of purpose by supporting and serving fellow veterans.
By sharing this conversation, Simon and Zach hope to help veterans understand that they are not alone, that they have a community.
And inspire us all to recognize the importance of real human connection; the importance of service.
