Oftentimes, the greatest man is not the one of acclaim, the person forgotten by his peers and people. True genius is created by true tribulation, and the grandest sacrifice a genius can ever suffer is to be ignored. When is a lifetime forgotten, a brilliant man lays in store treasure surpassing comprehension. Tesla, still neglected, created radio proper, AC electricity, a staple in all households and infrastructures. Van Gogh, whose art was valued at naught fostered a revolution of design. Thoreau, a philosopher, he achieved little, but his words culminated in the philosophies of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. Vasili Arkipov, who stopped nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Finally, Abinadi, a prophet who converted one man before his execution, but that one convert brought about the salvation of the entire people, that one convert who would himself become a prophet, a judge, a ruler. The hero forgotten, champion unsung, they are the kings of history, for their dominion is not in word, but effect.
