The Things He Said - Part Two - Late Afternoon

Chapter 9

Peace be with you

What is peace? Is it the silence after the guns have finished firing? Is it the so-called security of knowing that my bombs are bigger and more powerful and more numerous than yours? Is it secured by guards and sentries? Must we always patrol our boundaries and build the walls higher? Will it only ever be a truce, a kind of half peace as we catch breath, pausing between volleys of fire? Must it always be defended? And must we always get our retaliation in first?...
