"William McRaven has seen some of the darkest aspects of humanity but remains optimistic about the future and especially about the much-maligned millennial generation.
"'The good I have seen far outweighs the evil. So if you have any worries, if you have any worries about the current state of affairs, if you worry about where we’re going as a nation, if you worry about what’s going to happen as a world, we have great men and women who are coming up behind us,' McRaven said Friday.
"McRaven, a retired four-star admiral whose final assignment was commander of all U.S. special operations forces, spoke at the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches, part of the promotional tour for his second book, Sea Stories. He’s also author of the earlier best-seller Make Your Bed."
