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.
