  1. God always take all great men to stand beside him, a great man cannot be replaced just only copy. A great man doesn’t consider himself a hero, just a man that doing the duties that God has put him on earth to do.
    When God knows that a great man has done his duties on earth, its time to move on to the kingdom. You never can pay for greatness only learn from it. A great man told me once as a very young man, it’s not all about what you yourself achieved, it’s how you help others to achieve. A great man never dies, he just passes it on to the next person to achieve, on and on.
