Sunday Photo Fiction: Give Peace a Chance

“How can he be called a warrior if he refused to fight?” said Julian scornfully.

“He learnt there was something more courageous than fighting,” said Mum, “making peace.”

“Was he scared?” questioned Scott.

“No way!” replied Veronica. “Edward fought in many battles for King Castiel.”

“I still don’t get why he refused to fight,” Julian frowned. “Didn’t he want to kill the bad guys?”

“He realized that killing wasn’t the answer and he also felt guilty after that little girl got injured,” said Mum.

“That was sad, why did that happen?” asked Scott.

“Whenever there’s a fight, good people also get harmed,” explained Mum gently.

“Then, how can you be a hero if you hurt the good guys too?” Julian said exasperated.

“You can’t!” said Veronica firmly.

“The point is, Edward finally understood that it’s easy to start wars but it only leads to more war,” said Mum.

“I think Edward was very brave to say sorry to the little girl’s parents,” said Scott.

“Yes, it’s very brave to apologize,” smiled Mum. “Now off to bed!”

You poked me on purpose!

Did not!

Did so!

Mum sighed as she left the room, starting a fight was indeed very easy.
