Human beings are so adaptable that we often have accomplished what we previously thought ourselves incapable of achieving. The idea that men could fly was seen as absurd, until the Wright brothers, Santos Dumont, and others defied conventional wisdom.

For a brief time at the 1986 Reykjavik Summit, Presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev talked of creating a world free of nuclear weapons.  That vision of Reykjavik lay largely dormant for 21 years, until it was revived in January 2007 by four senior American statesmen: President Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz, President Clinton’s Secretary of Defense William Perry, President Nixon’s Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, and former Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee Sam Nunn...
