Join McCain for free viewings of two inspirational films: "THIS IS ME — Letters From the Front Lines" and "Journey of a Front-line Warrior — A Conversation With Dr. Steven Short." 
  
The viewing will begin with Diavolo's "THIS IS ME – Letters From the Front Lines," a dance film that captures the resilience, determination and hope of the human spirit.
 
Following "THIS IS ME" will be a brief discussion with Todd Holmberg, McCain Auditorium director; Jacques Heim, the director of "THIS IS ME"; and retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Art DeGroat, executive director of the K-State Office of Military and Veterans Affairs.  
 
The show will continue with “Journey of a Frontline Warrior — A Conversation with Dr. Steven Short." This local hero will take us on his journey of fear, bravery, duty, love and compassion as he answered the call to serve as a front-line physician in a Brooklyn hospital during the pandemic’s initial surge in New York in spring 2020.
