Valerian was an emperor of Rome in the third century who experienced the crushing weight of life in his descent from noble birth to subjugation. Before he was a defeated by the Persians and died as a prisoner of war he established the concept of trial by jury of one’s peers. It is fitting that Valerian’s legacy reallocates power from rulers to citizens as we hold the notion of equality to be a fundamental human right. While leaders are necessary for coordination, inspiration, and mobilization, it is imperative to believe that no one is above another in the eyes of God.
