"There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet."
U.S. Admiral William Halsey purportedly said that, and I suspect he was being modest in his praise of the generation that defeated fascism less than a lifetime ago.But there was, of course, nothing modest about that achievement. Bending the arc of history and setting it on a more righteous course is no mean feat.
