Sunday Photo Fiction
“Why do you need a symbol such as this, a lion which represents ferociousness,majestic beauty,merciless power and magnificence to guard the gate of Miltaius the Peaceland ?” asked the young man looking at the statue.
I could sense a profound sense of awe in him.
His admiration continued when suddenly he stopped and looked at me. “Why do you need violence to establish peace?” he asked.
I smiled , for i had been asked the same question many times before.
“Son , you cannot establish peace without being able to protect yourself. Being in peace doesn’t mean you cannot fight.”
“How do you know that?” he asked.
“Because i an Angel of peace created Silatus the majestic lion to protect us all.”
