Peace In Our Time – a 100w story

Peace In Our Time
Genre: (Recent) Historical Fiction

What would they say, he wondered, those he had fought alongside through the dark and hopeless years? No doubt there would be comrades eager to execute him for treason. He knew too much about the chain of command. He knew who pulled triggers and detonated bombs.

Leaders on both sides would mistrust his change of tack.

It would be hard but he refused to say ‘impossible.’ The resolve to bring peace burned strongly.

He would not hide from his past, could never wash the blood from his hands. It would not stop him carving a better future for his people.
