In such a tumultuous time, the masses beg for mercy and forgiveness. But the enlightened do not beg. The enlightened know begging is asking for something they cannot have. Will never have. Instead, the enlightened use a powerful force: hope. It is hope that will guide them through the uncertainty and violence.
Seemingly, the conflict has always existed. As if it is as natural as the moon chasing the waning sun across the skies that are scarred with the exhaust trails of war machines.
Warfare tolls on both sides constantly. Hope will vanquish its enemies. Fate needs not to be fatal.
