How do humans measure greatness? In history books, we write about who started wars and who brought about peace, who found land, or who made machines. Are those the only acts we can use to judge success?
Some dance well. Others can fight hard. Aren’t these people great in some way?
What about a person who treats others kindly during life or who can smile in peace at death?
Greatness is shown in many forms.
