A Battle Of Virtue - Poem by Stefanie Fontker

-->

What virtue could you keep
If they all have angry eyes,
And knives of dripping blood?
Ready to murder, to rape
Each other for first place
On a list of importance.

    Stephanie you have captured the great question - does the end justify the means if you are defending your life, your family, the one you love?
    As an ex soldier I have had to examine in REAL detail (I mean internally and without flinching from the blood and guts) what I would do to defend my
    A) Country
    B) Family
    C) Friends
    D) Strangers
    the answer is surprisingly consistent - Whatever it takes. I'm not sure what that makes me? Some people I know would never take life. I would. Some would never use physical violence. I have, many times, sometimes extreme. I think this gives me a perspective denied to others. Just a perspective, not a moral standpoint.
    You have made me examine my inner beliefs tonight and for that, thank you.
