But even if a man is truly a great leader, doesn’t he need to confront some great obstacle to be considered great? Another way of putting it, did Winston Churchill need Hitler to be great? Did Franklin Roosevelt need The Great Depression to be great? Did Fidel Castro need the Cuban Revolution to be great? Did Eric Williams need his ‘Education for All’ initiative to be great? Did T.A Marryshow, revered as the “Elder Statesman of the West Indies” and “Father of West Indies Federation,” need his record setting 30 consecutive years as a distinguished member of the House of Representatives for the Town of St. George to be great? Did Eric Gairy need Expo 69 and being recognized as Grenada’s Father of Independence to be great?
