All for one – one for all. St Andrews’ students commemorate the death of student John Honey who drowned while rescuing five sailors from a sinking ship in 1813. The weekly memorial perfectly encapsulates the spirit of NATO. Out of great loss and tragedy new sense of community has arisen. John Honey’s selfless act to protect others is emblematic of each NATO member’s pledge to protect the alliance. For me, this epitomises what NATO is about.
