The brilliant spirits of extraordinary people have led the world into new dimensions throughout time. They have been architects, musicians, philosophers, writers, painters, and artists. With their works they have shaped eras and created an imperishable cultural heritage. In each age, inventors and entrepreneurs have brought progress and prosperity to the world. They conquered markets with their new technologies and products. Courageous heroes left the earth with rocket propulsion and landed on the moon.
But we also recognize that on all continents, humanity has left a bloody, brutal and ruthless trail. Strong rulers created empires with their militaries and overran foreign countries with their weaponry. They left countless dead on battlefields and committed genocides. Poverty, epidemics and catastrophes have taken deadly tolls in each century and among all classes of society. With uprisings and revolutions, people tried to improve their situations. Throughout the ages, people sought God, and numerous founders of religion raised their heads.
